I saw this exercise recently that really made me think, and I wanted to share it with you.
Go to a mirror. Look at yourself.
Really, deeply look.
What do you see?
What are the first things that catch your eye?
What are you thinking?
Ok, done that? Great.
Now go to your child. Say those things again… Tell your child what you just told yourself…
Can you do it?
If the answer is no, maybe it’s time you start talking to yourself differently? Kinder? With love?
