Keep God (or your center) first.

Listen to your spirit. Be true to YOU. 

Drink a lot of water! Idk it makes me feel good.

Meditate. Relax. Inhale. Exhale.

Laugh as much as you can. 

Hold on to a smile as long as you can.

Don't take things so serious. We are all human.

So I'm cruising in this thread and I agree with trying to not judge people. I realize that although I don't say what I'm thinking, I'm still internalizing the judgement, so that will have to stop. I also am trying to not taking everything personal( it really can make your life miserable). I just tell myself, "It's not all about you." But I also don't think it's all about the other person either. I just take the situation matter of fact and look at it objectively. I also have to tell my emotions to STOP. Because they really can cloud your judgement.

I used to have really poor self esteem( lord, my ratchet past). But it's gotten much better with age, but I know its a daily process.


OMG this!!! (and I'm a libra...we are just as vain) LOL

@ honeyb yesssssss!!!!!

I am a huge ruminator...So I really had to accept and let go of every mistake I made. I dwell on things too much and it can bring me down and distract me from the present.

I take good care of my body. I don't know about other people, but exercise makes me feel amazing physically and mentally. It gives me amazing confidence.

I keep good people around me. People that are doing well in their lives and it motivates me.

I stroke my ego a lot. I constantly have to remind myself of my accomplishments, no matter how far away my new ones may seem.

Great thread OP. you are always so motivating and encouraging. I admire your positivity. 

I am highly self reflective, and so I work on my mental state continuously. 
I truly believe that a mentally sound mind is the key to the goodness in life. All good things flow to you when you are mentally sober and sound, things both spiritual and physical. 
That is the root of my self love.

Realize that, despite appearances, NO ONE has it all figured out. We are all works in progress. This should take off some of the pressure. 

Thanks for your feedback ladies. I'll be watching, taking notes and contributing more to this thread as the thoughts come.
