A Simple Tip on How to Show Yourself Some Love

When I was about 12 years old we had a wipe board attached to the fridge for notes from my parents and older brother.  One morning I found the words, “I LOVE ME” were written in bold on it.  I though my brother had written it.  He was 9 years older than me and it would have just made sense for him at 17 to write that.

I approached my father with it later in the day and said something like, “Did you see that conceited note that Joey wrote on the fridge?”  My father just giggled.  “Read it again,” he said.  So I did.  I couldn’t understand why he found it funny.  It was rude in my eyes.  I always saw conceitedness as a negative trait to show.  He then gently pointed out that “I” was the one reading it.  It was meant as a message from whoever read it to whoever read it.  He reassured me that it was not conceit, it was OK to love myself and he thought we all needed a reminder.  WOW!  That concept blew my mind.  I loved it though.

Today, this would be called an affirmation.  If something positive is written and you repeat it often enough as if it is real and in the present, your subconscious will start to believe it. I’d like to share a “Conceited Love Note” with you and I want you to read it as if your subconscious was trying to send you a true message about yourself.  (Let’s face it, it already is true but you just may not believe it all yet.)  Print it out and read it often.  You will be surprised at how your brain responds to it.  The below note was written just for you.  Enjoy!

The Conceited Love Note
I am wonderful
I have the ability to be whatever I choose
I am smart
I was born with the tools to succeed
My bank account does not define me
I am unique
I am filled with love and very loveable
I have what it takes to attract the right person and keep them
I have the ability to make a difference in the lives of those I love
I love life and look forward to the possibilities it holds
 I am grateful for what I have and who is in my life
I do the best I can every day in all I do
I say what I mean so I am understood but I am only kind with my words
I ask questions when I do not understand
I do not judge myself or others harshly
I give people compliments when they deserve them
I am kind
I never start drama
I forgive and do not hold grudges
I pay attention to my thoughts
Everything in my life happens for a reason
I have the ability to handle whatever life throws my way
I am in control of my responses to every situation
I am strong
I am a good person
I am successful in all I do
You can create your own affirmations or add to this one.  I hope you will.  It is important to have faith in yourself and who you are and who you want to be.  Affirmations, stated in the positive, as if they are true, become true after time and effort is put into repeating them more than once a day, aloud and believing them.
What will you do with this information?  Will you create your own?  Will you write one for your spouse of children to read daily?  Will you make one to read to your small children daily?
What a difference these can make in your life.

  1. I agree Lisa! I feel that so many people were never given permission to love themselves. I'd love to be a part of that perception shift.

    Thank you for your comment.

  2. We all need a little reminding from time to time. I love “my bank account does not define me”. So many people feel that it does, whether there is an abundance there or it stays in the negative. Money is not “who” we are.

  3. Thank you Tracie. We are so much more. I'm glad you liked that part. I have had to remember that one often.

    Thank you for visiting. I hope you will return.

  4. There are so many pieces to that love note that resonated with me and I am going to write this down.. and put it in my journal/scrap book. As someone that left the corporate world to pursue a dream of performing… money is always in the back of my mind so “my bank account does not define me” is something I need to hold on to. I have also been single for a while, partly by choice since I'm never in one place, secondly because I'm super picky, thirdly I may be a little vain (I'm coming to terms with this and hopefully I can work on it now) and lastly because the universe hasn't given me the right man… so “I have what it takes to attract the right person and keep them” is also something I need to affirm!
    Thank you for the lovely note.

  5. You are right – we need to find our affirmations, and they need to be worded in a positive way. The hardest part is finding other ways to say something, instead of using “not” or “never”… That was what I have the most trouble with, but with practice, it comes a little easier each time.

    Thank you for sharing the Love Note – we could all stand to get one of these once in a while.

  6. That is a great compliment. I am glad it resonates with you. I appreciate your candor.

    Thank you for stopping in. I hope you will visit often.


  7. Staying positive is a never-ending battle. We need to realize that most of it will come from us. You can do it.
