I Love Myself Anyways

I feel like I have talked a lot lately about how I don’t love/appreciate who I am, and so, for the past month I have really been trying to just “love myself anyways.” 

What does that mean exactly? Well, kind of like this….


I set my alarm each and every weekday for when I want to wake up (to exercise, to give myself more time in the morning etc.) However, each and every morning, I reset my alarm at some point to the very minute that I would haveeeeee to wake up at and never actually get up early. At all.

I don’t like how I look in sleeveless shirts, but hot damn, it’s the summer and I am going to wear them regardless.

I love myself anyways


I swear. A lot. I know I shouldn’t, but I do.

I love myself anyways


I am not a perfect Mother, lawwwwwd knows I am not a perfect Mother. I get frustrated and loose my patience, I let them eat chocolate some days before 9am….but I love them, and I am trying and….

I love myself anyways


I wake up and tell myself that I am going to eat what my body needs and deserves, and I will not give into the temptations that my inner child or ego is telling me to do. But then, the day commences, and I eat a cookie, I have a pop, I crave a poutine. I eat how I feel versus what I need.

I don’t stay in touch with friends as much as I should, as much as I want to, as much as they need – but I am here for them even if they don’t know it.

I love myself anyways


I have made a lot of mistakes in my life. Some I have learned from, some I would do again, some I wish I could take back….

I love myself anyways


When I just feel like curling up in a ball, not doing a damned thing, and selfishly enjoy the peace and quiet…

I love myself anyways


When I look at myself in the mirror and pick out all of the million things I dislike….I am trying, really trying….

I love myself anyways


….and so this, this is my new self motto. When I come up with an excuse, when I get down on myself for everything or anything, when I am having a downright shitty day and can’t find anything to make me smile

I love myself anyways.

I love myself anyways because I deserve it. I love myself anyways because the more I tell myself that I am ok, that I am alright – the more I might believe it. The more I might just think less of the bad and more of the good. I love myself anyways.
