How many of us need to remember how special we are? It sounds cheesy, right?
Well, I have needed to do this on many occasions, and I still practice this challenge when I feel stressed or down. This has helped me tremendously because it means that I can rely on myself to feel special. When I feel this way, then I don't get upset with others if they don't appreciate or understand me. I let go of the expectation of needing others to give me attention, appreciation, or understanding. When you do this, you increase your inner peace.
The reason I do this challenge more than once is that I don't feel special all the time. Who does? However, the more I do it, I have fewer moments where I feel down about myself. This helps me in so many ways. I feel more motivated, productive, loving, calm, and peaceful. Plus, when I think this way about myself, I appreciate others for their uniqueness.
Increase your inner peace and watch your love grow.
