5 Ways to Stay Positive and Practice Self-Love

31 Comments
Hiya Gorgeous!

There’s a lot going on in the world and in our lives at the moment. No matter what life throws our way, we have the choice to go high or low—to elevate our energy or to sink into negativity. All of life’s challenges—from a national tragedy to our daily personal struggles—are calling us to rise up and be our best selves. We’re being asked to show compassion for ourselves and others.

But it’s easy to get sucked into negative thought patterns. When the world feels out of control, it’s a signal that it’s time to pay extra attention to self-love, to be extra good to yourself and others.

Maybe that means canceling a commitment that’s stressing you out and spreading you too thin. Or doing a random act of kindness for a stranger. You never know! One little action taken with love can have a chain reaction that gets someone out of feeling lonely and back on their feet.

So if you’re feeling like your soul needs a pick-me-up, I’m here to help you turn things around. We all want the world to be a peaceful and gentle place. We want to be fully present and relaxed in our lives—but we’ve gotta support our own health and wellness in order to do that. We create a peaceful world by first creating calm and serenity within ourselves.

When I need to take care of myself, but I’m not sure exactly how to do it, I ask for guidance from my Crazy Sexy Love Notes deck. These cards always lead me back to the path of self-love, patience, and gentleness. Sometimes you can shake off stress just by shifting your perspective.

Accept yourself

While there’s a time and place for self-improvement, today’s focus is on everything that’s already great about you. Let go of who you think you should be and fall madly in love with who you are in this moment. When you accept yourself exactly as you are, you shift from living for tomorrow to appreciating today. Accept yourself, sweetheart.

Risk it

Great things are born from those brave enough to fly—those who are willing to risk failure. Your dreams require action, and you’re ready to make a move. Remember you have nothing to lose. Even if you flop, you’ll receive valuable insight. So get off your butt and take a leap. Go for it!

It’s time to rise

No matter what’s happening in our lives, we always have the potential to rise above it. Rising is one powerful choice away. Rise out of our negative thoughts or our limiting beliefs. Rise out of our comfort zone or our complaints. Rise out of our slump or out of the potato chip bag. Get up and rise. What are you waiting for, darling?

Nourish yourself

Have you been using food to numb rather than nourish? Be honest. If so, break that pattern today. Show your cells that you care by choosing healthy, wholesome foods made with love. Eat your veggies, make a green juice, and toast to your longevity. Cheers!

You are healing

Healing happens in seasons. It can’t be rushed or forced to fit a schedule. So often we curse the seeds that haven’t taken root, failing to realize it’s not their time. They need more water, sunlight, and care. Bullying ourselves blocks regeneration. Also, sometimes the healing we’re focused on isn’t the healing that’s taking place. There’s a much deeper healing going on. Be patient, dear one. You are healing.

I hope these messages add a little more calm and connection to your day. You deserve to soak in as much joy, delight and love as possible—that way you can spread positivity around to others and pay it forward!


Your turn: Which message resonates with you the most?

Peace and love,

Kris Carr
