The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. When this relationship changes and evolves, make no mistake that your external life will reflect these changes too. It’s no accident that when I’m busting with love and overflowing with inner happiness, the people around me reflect that back.
It’s no accident that when I truly trust that Allah will provide for me, I have new clients and opportunities knocking on my door. Here I’m going to share 4 ways to flex you self-love muscle, so that you can show up as the most happiest and vibrate version of you.
Give Yourself Compliments
You go through your day magnifying your mistakes and criticising every non-existent flaw you could possibly have, so why not change the daily dialogue you have with yourself? There was a period in my life that no matter how hard I tried, I was constantly feeling depressed and unmotivated.
I was seriously questioning quitting my blog and felt so useless. In that moment, I noticed how all my thoughts were beyond negative and weighing me down. No wonder I felt so awful!
Since that moment, I’ve made a conscious decision to check in with my thoughts and feed positivity into my mind. That’s why I love and highly recommend complementing yourself on a daily basis.

When you wake up, it’s so easy to rush into the day and forget that your still in your pyjamas (guilty!). For those reasons, spend 5 minutes every morning on you. Specifically on your appearance and clothes.
Even if you’re a stay at home mother or work from home, dressing beautifully can do wonders for your self esteem and confidence and is an important key when embracing your own radical self love routine. I noticed the days that I quickly flick on mascara, softly smudge a black/brown eye liner around my eyes, I feel so much more beautiful. I’ve seen grandmothers who can barely walk, still find the time to pencil in their eyebrows. It’s because beauty is such an integral need for us women.
Work On Your Passions
If you don’t nourish this part of yourself, it’ll show up in many other ways. You’ll be the cranky wife and mother constantly nagging at your husband and children (for control) because you’re feeling so lost deep within yourself.
