As I mentioned recently, if there is any lesson I can teach Maya — aside from good morals and values (yadda, yadda, yadda)– it would be to love herself exactly as she is.
This quote from the Sex & the City finale hits that nail smack on the head. Today, I wanted to share it with you, my readers.
“Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.” — Carrie Bradshaw
How many times have you thought, “If only I was…” and interjected “smarter, thinner, prettier, sexier, stronger.” When I have those moments of self-doubt, I try to channel my inner Carrie Bradshaw and if the confidence still isn’t there, I “fake it til I make it.”
Next time those toxic self-doubting thoughts cross your mind, try to remember those final words from Carrie Bradshaw (well, til the movies came out, that is!).
And remember … you’re fabulous!
