Learning to Love Yourself.

Posted on September 24 2018

The relationship you have with yourself is the most important one you will ever have. Because of this it's really important to develop this relationship just like you would with another person who you truly love.

However, truly loving yourself can seem impossible. We constantly beat ourselves up, speak horribly to ourselves, let ourselves get run down....

I know this because that's what I used to do... and the idea of loving myself seemed like it could never happen.

So, instead of trying to love myself, I started by liking myself. That meant being kind and nice to myself.... and that eventually led to me loving myself.

I go into how this works in this brief video that I want you to watch now...

 

 

Start today with being nice and kind to yourself. Eventually you too will look in the mirror one day and say, "I love you." Best of all, you'll actually mean it.

Remember... You are worth it!

Much love - Misty

    Wow! This message is so timely and such a perfect reminder of what I need right now. I just joined the Body Groove community and tried the DVD yesterday for the first time and love it! I actually bought the DVDs because I wanted to do something supportive for me that would help me feel better, overall, and guess, what? Of course they do! This message, just reinforced my recent decision to create some difficult boundaries for the purpose of doing what’s best for me and not overextending, so this was just the validation I needed that I was on the right path and not being selfish. Thank you so much for all the healing that you are sharing. So uplifting! Much gratitude!

    Misty,
    I purchased the streaming subscription about a week ago. You are so inspirational and uplifting! I’m loving the videos. I’m doing the 7 day start. After that I will try the various kinds of music types. Thank you. Keep the inspiration coming!

    I just bought some of your CDs Misty – I’m looking forward to joining your groove! And, thanks for this video! Just what I needed!!! I now have to start a new journey/chapter in my life! Thanks Lady!!!!

    Thank you for A very inspirational message. It hit at a time i needed it most. I am one who has a discipline problem. I start an exercise program then in a couples weeks it’s forgotten with some excuse. The only one I have continually gone back to for over 20 yrs, is one called oxycise…but at 75yrs, with 2 knees replaced and now dealing with Parkinson’s I need more movement. Since I am a musician my dr. recommended your tape. Looking forward too it and hope i can stick to it (and learn to love myself.)
    My daughter in law who has a severe arthritis disease and has constant pain loves it. Thank you
    My doctor keeps reminding me…“if you don’t want to do something, you’ll find an excuse…. if you want to do something, you’ll find a reason”

    Thank you for this message. I am not a fan of myself at all. Over 2 yrs ago I was on a very strict weightloss program. I exercised 4 times a week and was basically on a liquid diet for 6 months.I lost over 100 lbs in about 6 months. I was feeling so good about myself, even kind of sexy. I was under a drs care. I felt so great! In the last year I have encountered a lot of change. I moved to a different place away from family and friends and it was stressful. My husband got cancer for the 4th time. So more added stress. I started stress eating and gained 90 lbs back. I have seen your videos on Facebook and kept saying I should get this. I finally did. Your positive message hit me straight in my face and in my heart. It will be a while before I can actually love myself. I am not a fan of myself. Thank you for your kind words.

    It’s 2020 and I am actually sticking to a New Year’s resolution. This is a first time EVER for me. And what pray tell made the difference. Well one day I was scrolling thru Facebook and there you were smiling and dancing around to some pretty cool music. So I stopped in my tracks to take a listen and to see how hard the moves were. After watching…I thought to myself I could do that. And sure enough I can. It has taken me a really long time to put any effort into liking myself let alone loving myself. But like you said it takes baby steps. Thanks to you those steps are getting easier and easier and before you know it I will be able to look in the mirror and say…”I LOVE YOU GIRL”.

    I love the God! I love you, and I love myself! Thank you so much!

    I don’t know why, but this message meant so much to me tonight! I’m generally a happy person and I know I’m a good person but today I struggle with a negative family member who has hurt me before and I opened the door for them today and it was like reading the same book twice and hoping for a different ending. Your message is beautiful and are words to like by. Thank you for your beautiful heart and beautiful messages and words of encouragement and self power. We have to choose happiness everyday!

  • Deborah Nordby: February 02, 2020

    Thank you Misty. This is a great message. I love dancing along with your videos.
    The positive messages you bring are so important! I’ve made a goal for myself to be positive in my thoughts & my words.
    Keep taking care of & loving yourself.

  • Janice Crayton: February 02, 2020

    What a great message. This spoke directly to my heart! I will take steps to liking me first in order to love me more. Thank you

  • Linda Howard: January 30, 2020

    I have always taken care of other people.First my husband then my children and my grandchildren and now my dad.I never felt good about myself I was bullied at school but back then it was boys just being boys they did not have a name for it. I have never felt good about myself.But I think it is about time for me to take care of me. I’m soon to be 73 and I just wish I had not waited so long . Thank you so much my sister has been telling me this for years.I guess it is time for me to listen

  • Dorothy Shea Reynolds: January 30, 2020

    Wow,you have no idea how I needed to hear this today. I have spent my whole life disliking myself for not being perfect, thin enough , smart enough
    beautiful enough. At age 63 I need to start liking then loving myself. Thank you thank you thank you.

  • Francis Ames: January 29, 2020

    Thank you so much Misty❣️ I am an in-home caregiver with terminal and disability children , and I also take care of two elderly ladies, as well as take care of my boyfriend. So I understand what you are talking about when you say taking care of everyone else. I love to take care of others, it’s in my nature. But at the same time I do. Look at myself in the mirror and say you’re fat you’re ugly. Which is really sad because I am so proud that I look exactly like my mother, she is the most beautiful woman in the world (of course I am biased). Now over the last two-and-a-half to three months I have lost 25 lb. My orthopedic doctor has told me that if I loose 50 lbs, he would do my surgery and give me a new knee. A few years back I was walking down the stairs and tore my ACL completely through as well as many other ligaments. I have developed 6 bone spurs ,arthritis, no ACL, and no cartilage, I am bone to bone all in my right knee. I have done Zumba several times. Each time I would get into a week’s worth of my exercise and my knee would give out on me and then I would have to start all over again with healing and then I would try it again in the same thing would happen. So it is my knee that is stopping me from losing weight and doing exercise. But two and a half months ago I started seeing a dietitian and she has been helping me with portion and low fat, low sugar, and low salt foods. I am on my way to getting healthier. As well as I have started a skin care regimen from myself. I am hopefully on my way to loving myself, like you said baby steps. Then again I really needed to watch this video ❣️ by the way I cried too.

    Thanks for your thoughts on loving yourself! I will work harder on believing why I should love myself to love others💚

  • Peri: January 28, 2020

    THANK YOU!

  • Diana Gatti: January 28, 2020

    Hi Misty,
    Thank you! I’m starting my journey♥

  • Ganishya: January 27, 2020

    Thank you for that eyes opening message. No one is taught to love themselves…

  • Delight: January 24, 2020

    Absolutely agree with you. Loving myself is super important before I can love others. It’s important to take care of me. Thanks for the reminder.

    “When you love yourself, you love everyone”
    Misty you have such a beautiful heart. Strangely enough, I discovered you by this video last year when I was on Mindvalley platform for 4 months of personnel development. And your genuine heart and tears really moved me. The link to your platform was transmitted by a person who struggled as I with fitness :)
    My commitment to this new year 2020 is to take care of my body by eating good vegetarian food (as dancing with you on your platform :). Right now I am on the 12 Steps Recovery program on the Commune platform with Russell Brand. And from my side in a few months, I will have my own platform related to my book, a Manifesto on Happiness, which will be on Amazon and 4 other platforms in May. If my dream comes true, I will welcome you on my platform to share your art, Heart, and Joy to the french people. Thank you again for your offering of hope and joy to all of us and to humanity. Let’s create all together a “Global Tribe of Change-makers” (Vishen Lakiani). With love from France.
