I Love That About Us
If you’ve picked up a copy of my Art of Self Love ebook, you know that one of my favorite ways to transform the vibe of self-judgment is to say, “I love that about me“ for whatever I’d been judging myself about.
Example, instead of being embarrassed that I snort when I laugh, I transform it to appreciation by thinking, “I love that about me.”
On a dime I feel much better about snorting.
(Who knew how cute that is?!)
It’s a little weird how well it works.
Instead of being mad at myself that I’m running late again, I dip into the good vibes by saying, “I love that about me.”
And all of a sudden I do! It is one of my favorite methods for magical vibe-shifting.
Guess what else it works on?
Everyone around you.
Let’s say – hypothetically, of course – that it bugs me how critical my ex can be of others. As I feel that negative energy building within as I’m judging him – I try on the thought, “I love that about him.”
And all that negative energy goes poof instantly.
When I’m having an issue with a vendor who seems unresponsive and irresponsible, I say in my mind, “I love that about them.” And in that moment I see a whole a different version of the company. Without the thought, they’re jerks. With the thought, they’re adorable. ?!
Okay, that’s cool, but does it work for “bigger” things?
Putin. That’ll put it to the test (for me).
As I entertain all the judgment I have of Russia’s leader and that downed Malaysian passenger plan, I say out loud, “I love that about him.”
You know what happened next? It’s like I shifted perspectives and could see that drama from a different – higher – perspective. One where he wasn’t dangerous or threatening, and more like I was watching a cartoon or movie scene.
I can’t say I landed on him as an adorable guy, but it definitely shifted something.
I don’t know whether this love affirmation will do anything for you or not, but in case it does I wanted to share. Enjoy!
