I find it easy to be hard on myself– which sounds like a contradiction. But it is much harder to tell myself: “Self, you did a crazy-good job today. Way to help that patron, do that load of laundry and nail that presentation.” Instead I often find myself thinking: “Self, you need to be wedding planning now! You should have remembered to use that resource when helping that patron. You should have done another load of laundry. And you should have said this instead of that.”
So, this little love note goes out to myself. Because I taught myself enough Photoshop to create this affirmation. And because remembering that I am enough is some of the best love I can give myself. I deserve it. I am enough.
