Hello sweetie darlings!
I recently hired a life coach. Why? For several reasons, I just needed another brain to get me out of my loops and time sucks.
We started last Friday, and so far, I have been doing what she has asked of me, but we've only just stared.
I'm not sure what to expect, other than to be taken out of my comfort zone.
We shall see what these next 10 sessions will bring, but in the meantime, I wanted to share with you one of the exercises she wanted me to do.
When she first proposed it, I thought it was a little stupid and didn't realize the point. Now, I do.
The homework assignment was to write a top 25 list of the things I like about myself.
Lame, right. At least I thought so. But it was an exercise of changing my thinking.
Instead of focusing on all the things I don't like about myself, here I was given the opportunity to really think about what I love about myself.
I thought it would be difficult, but after the first few things I wrote down, it started flowing and less than 15 minutes later, the assignment was completed.
So without further ado, here is my list. Maybe it will inspire you to make your own.
TOP 25 LIST OF WHAT I LOVE ABOUT MYSELF
I wrote down my love list on a nice sheet of paper, written down with a special pen.
As I was writing down my love list, a wash of emotions came over me, like little charges, I felt good. I felt happy. And content.
The love list follows me around everywhere, as it is kept in my agenda, which is one of the three staples I carry in my tote bag.
While getting ready to start my day, I take out my love list and read it out loud before leaving my house. It has become a daily pep talk to help me tackle the unknown. I like to read it while having my morning coffee.
Have you ever made a love list? How about a gratitude list?
I recently done both and I can tell you it helps get me out of my negative thought patterns and self deprecating humor. Maybe it will work for you? Try it, and let me know.
I will also keep you posted on my life coach therapy sessions, after all, everybody needs help!
Take care of yourselves, eat well, drink well, and all shall be well.
Bonjour et Bienvenue!

Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
