There is nothing more awkward in life than investing in ourselves...

Nothing more awkward in life than investing in ourselves.  For a very long time if someone pays me a compliment on my clothes, I always feel like justifying the bargain it was or the charity find I am wearing.  

If someone says you look nice, do you jump in and say ‘thank you’ or brush it off?  I can hazard a guess at what you do!

Kind words can feel uncomfortable and even sometimes a bit indulgent. We find it SO much easier to say kind words to others than we ever do ourselves.

Think of the narrative you have in your head when you look in a mirror, do you tell yourself you look hot, hair is on point, you are the kindest person, you are proud of yourself, you are good friend… NO,  didn’t think so. You probably rip yourself apart, tell yourself all the things you could do better, scrutinise your appearance and are mean.  

Can you IMAGINE if you spoke to someone else the way you talk to yourself?  You may lose some friends, lose your front teeth and possibly gain a black eye!

I have a challenge for you...
