I Am Lovable!
Before I get to the topic of being lovable, let me start with being confident. I used to believe that being a confident woman meant I had to get out there and do the hard, unimaginable and face the fear zone head on.
I've run a few of those 26.2 mile marathons, traveled alone to foreign lands, applied for jobs bigger than me, had a baby when I was barely done being one, spoke in front of 100's of people, chased a child molester in the dead of night…..I survived them all. I succeeded. And yes, I show up today a more confident woman due to going for it.
I also want say that it takes something else to walk the talk of a confident woman. It takes a special way of being – a gift – that everyone has but alot fewer dare embody. This gift is often harder to open than anything else. The gift is being lovable.
And this one was harder for me than any external action I took on. I didn't always feel lovable and I had many experiences in my life where what showed up for me was a mirror to my feeling of unlovability or not enough. That is where the pain comes in.
You see, everything on the inside is reflected on the outside, eventually.
The truth is, we were born lovable. A baby cries knowing they are precious and someone will come. A puppy runs and jumps without a care in the world. They know they are loved and will be cared for. Somewhere between then and perhaps now – you've lost that knowing.
You've experienced setbacks, challenges, losses and pain. You feel sometimes life is against you, life is hard and often lonely. Only skinny, pretty girls get the good stuff.
You might you just need to do that thing and you will be more confident and life will be good again, right? Yeah, it will surely help.

What You Really Need is a Dose of Lovability
- Others will love you to the degree you love yourself.
- They will see it when you do.
Relationships require love. You need to give it to yourself so you have some to give away. So you can receive from them too. You will also attract people into your life that love themselves. Life will get so much better this way.
Love is what really builds confidence. It is the easier way. Yes, climb the mountain but climb it with love. Believe in you. See yourself shine and know you are capable, unstoppable, worthy of success and inspiring so many. Love does this.
Knowing you are lovable is demonstrated by being gifted your precious life, being alive, having unique abilities, ideas and quirky little ways that attract your perfect tribe of followers.
Accepting you are lovable is not about the past, the size of your bank account or the color of your skin. You are not your age, your size, your body – what you really are is lovable.
If you are in doubt of how you feel about being lovable, you are not alone.
Other great women like Princess Diana and Marilyn Monroe didn't believe they were lovable. They needed the world to show them and when the world did, they still did not believe. So you see, no one else can do it for you. No one else can give you the love you deserve like you can. You don't need the whole world to love you – you need you more than anyone else. It will always feel empty or lacking, fearful, and alone inside until you give yourself the gift you have been carrying inside your whole life.
Right now it is time to stop chasing love or searching for your value. You already have it inside. Let it surround you.
Tell yourself everyday in every way you can. I AM LOVABLE.
Put it where you eyes go and Post it. Shout it. Sign it. Breathe it. Write it on your hand if you have to.
This is the way of a confident woman. She is lovable. You are lovable. Got it babe?
