Lessons from a Recovering Doormat

* SL book_cover


Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I borrowed it for the title of the book I’m giving away through The Self-Love Movement™—How Do I Love Me? Let Me Count the Ways. To build self-love, it’s good to think in those terms. I suggest you rewrite the poem.

Start by saying what you love about you and then add what you do to practice self-love. Hand write it and keep your ode to yourself handy. Read it out loud when you can, to remind yourself of how much you love yourself. Mine is below.  Use it as a guide to write your own ode to yourself.




How Do I Love Me? Let me Count the Ways
How do I love me?
Let me count the ways.
I love me for my big heart,
I love me for my curvy body,
I love me for my spirit,
I love me for my twinkling smile,
I love me because I’m me.

How do I love me?
Let me count the ways.
I love me by I’ve deciding to be my own best friend,
I love me by accepting my imperfections,
I love me by stopping my negative self-talk.
I love me by taking good care of my heath,
I love me by allowing time for things I enjoy,
I love me by clearing out toxic people from my world,
I love me by making my needs a priority,
I love me by knowing I deserve the best.
I love me because I know that I’m one of God’s children an He loves me,
And He wants me to love myself,
I love me by treating myself with kindness,
And I am committed to continue loving me for the rest of my life!
