You might think you want a new dress or new shoes, but long after they've gone out of style you will benefit every day from accepting yourself completely - exactly as you are, with no reservations.
How often do you think you need to change something about yourself?
The more often you think about needing to lose weight, needing to exercise more, needing to stop acting in a certain way - just needing anything at all - the more you're focusing on being critical, which never makes you feel good.
When you look at yourself with kindness and total acceptance, you no longer see any perceived flaws - you see all of you, as the wonderful person you really are. When you're relaxed and comfortable about how you look, and how you behave, you allow your personality to shine through - and that makes others relax around you.
Losing a few pounds won't change how you feel about yourself if you stll have the same insecurities lurking inside. They will wait for any opportunity to jump back out, and make you reach for the nearest comfort food.
You have to accept everything about you to be able to let go of those thoughts that pick fault. When you free yourself from those, you free yourself to focus on everything that is positive about you. Learn to appreciate all your good qualities, and you'll notice others treat you differently.
Have you tried to compliment someone who dismisses it, and replies with a negative comment instead? It makes you feel bad, but inside that person is feeling worse, because they've built a barrier to deflect what they wrongly think they don't deserve.
Contrast that with someone who is self-confident, and they will always return a compliment to you - so you both feel even better.
You can only share happiness when you feel happy - and that starts from inside you.
You won't be happy when you lose those pounds, or change that behavour, if you still have the same feelings locked away that caused them to manifest. Give yourself the gift of time to pay attention to why you feel the way you do, then you can release and free yourself to express all that you can be.
You can't give all of you when you allow negative thoughts to hold you back.
If you want to give those you love even more this Christmas - show them you love and accept every inch, and every characteristic, that makes you uniquely you. You will feel the difference in the love returned to you. People can't relax and be open around those who can't give fully.
Once you accept all of you, then your attitude towards yourself becomes gentler as you replace criticism with kindness - and your body will reward you with letting go of those extra pounds naturally, and that negative trait will soften and transform.
ZPoint can help you be all you were meant to be by releasing your unconscious blocks peacefully, freeing you to blossom and shine. Have a very Happy Christmas!
