004: The Definitive Guide to Loving Yourself

It’s not selfish to love yourself, to take care of yourself and to make your happiness your priority. It’s necessary

[Mandy Hale]


You tell yourself,

I can’t cope with anything else.

I’m not capable.

It always goes wrong.

That pesky voice in your head. There’s always something negative to say, always a reason to keep you down, always telling you not to bother because you’ll probably fail.

But what if you could zap that inner critic with a hefty dose of self love and replace it with an inner cheerleader?

Because you are worthy.

You can cope.

And you’re an amazing mum.

Start to believe it and you’ll start to see it SuperMum.

In this week’s episode of The Friday Café, Michelle Dawson and I talk about the benefits of loving ourselves unconditionally. Because until we can, how can we expect love in return?

    I really enjoyed this weeks episode and managed to listen to it with my eyes closed round the pool on holiday in Spain today while the girls swam. I managed to get through the whole thing without one interruption – just bliss!

    Lovely Lisa. I was just thinking of that a few days ago so I took my girls on a day to the beach. That’s my best place on earth, they had fun while I lied down & had a nice tan. Of course it didn’t last long as they started asking to go to the Pier & ask for food, but I managed to switch off for about 30 minutes.

    Today I threw out a challenge to find a 30 minute window in your day to do something just for yourself. I took on the challenge myself by doing something I rarely do. I was shattered after a week of late nights and a ton of excitement from launch week, so I spent my 30 minutes lounging around on the sofa in the middle of the morning while the kids watched TV. My head was spinning with to-do’s, but I took my own advice and pushed away the desire to keep going. Not surprising, I fell asleep and had a wonderful 20 minute power nap and woke up like a new pin. 30 minutes well spent because I stopped being grumpy for the rest of the day. Thank you me for loving me!
