At Thanksgiving time, many people reflect on what they are grateful for. They often say things like family, home, work, health, and friends.
Gratitude opens our heart and raises our vibration to the realm of love, joy, and abundance. Feeling grateful feels fabulous.
However, if you take a moment to look internally, how grateful are you for YOU? What do you like about being you? What personal qualities do you appreciate about yourself? What have you done this past year that you’re proud of?
Most of us have an inner bully who drags us down with self-criticism. The inner bully would never dream of praising us! The inner bully loves to remind us of our faults and all the things we do “wrong” and could have done better. This brings us down into a vibration of shame, which is the lowest vibration we can experience. Shame weighs us down and blocks the flow of creativity, love, joy, and abundance.
Self-gratitude counteracts your inner bully. It helps you take your power back from your inner bully. Instead, you can raise your vibration and uplift yourself with gratitude for you. Self-gratitude is an important part of self-love and true inner confidence. There is no shame in recognizing and celebrating your outstanding qualities. You deserve to hear nice things from yourself! Plus, when you shine, you inspire others to shine.
