As a woman, you know that our self-esteem can suffer. That may be due to real or imagined conditions or incidents, but no matter where those feelings originate from, they feel very real and hurtful. The next time you’re feeling less than beautiful or lovable, try out one of these ideas for building up your own value and sense of self-worth. Heck, why wait? You can do at least one of these every day of the month. Because you really are worth it.

  1. Remind yourself that today is the first day of the rest of your life.
  1. Realize that the past is gone, and the future is unknown. You can only control the present.
  1. Gray hair can be gorgeous on you. Think Diane Keaton, Paula Deen, Jamie Lee Curtis. Even Kelly Osbourne rocked gray hair for a while.
  1. No matter what you weigh, you’re somebody else’s goal weight.
  1. Whatever your hair looks like now, it’s automatically better than any style you had in the 80s.
  1. Quintessential mother icons are all a little heavy. Aunt Jemima (pancake syrup maven), Aunt Bee (Andy Griffith), Tootsie (Dustin Hoffman’s role) and Mrs. Weasley (Harry Potter).
  1. Men adore freckles. It’s the cosmetic companies that try to make you dislike them. Don’t fall for it.
  1. Your boyfriend knows what you really look like when you wake up, and he still loves you.
  1. Your big feet are tiny compared to a lot of celebrities. Elle MAcPherson wears a size 12, Paris Hilton size 11, and Cindy Crawford size 10.
  1. Rough looking hands mean you aren’t afraid to get your hands dirty and work hard.
  1. Crow’s feet mean that you’ve spent a lot of your life either smiling or laughing. Crow’s feet are way better than frown lines.
  1. If you don’t bear a few scars, you haven’t lived a full life.
  1. There’s a little child version of yourself inside you right now. Love her and take care of her because you’re all she’s got.
  1. The greatest gift you can give yourself is forgiveness.
  1. You can’t grab the future if you don’t let go of the past.
  1. Would you rather be thought of as good looking or as a good friend?
  1. Stop berating yourself for not finishing your to-do list. Even if you crossed them all off, you know quite well you’d just start a new one tomorrow!
  1. They make size 16 clothes for a reason, and apparently make a tidy profit from selling them. Turns out you’re not the only one buying them.
  1. Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. Remember that the next time you look at your beautiful self in the mirror.
  1. Your smile is your greatest beauty asset, no matter what the rest of you looks like.
  1. Men rate ‘self-confidence’ as the most attractive quality in a woman.
  1. Don’t let society tell you what beauty should look like. Society doesn’t have your best interests at heart.
  1. Your happiness and good health make a joyous life. There are thousands of great stereotypical beauties in the world who lack what you have inside of you.
  1. You are stronger than you can ever know, and capable of greater things than you can ever dream.
  1. That unruly head of curls that you’ve kept trying to straighten since you were old enough to iron will eventually win you over.
  1. Your child thinks you are beautiful. You can see it in her eyes everyday.
  1. Don’t wait until you lose that 10 pounds before you venture out to meet new friends. If they are worthy of your friendship, they won’t care what you weigh now or then.
  1. This is the body your parents gave you. Do you really want to complain about such a beautiful gift?
  1. The very same ones you think despise you, might be the ones who are simply intimidated by your strength and wisdom.
  1. No matter how bad it is now, you can be guaranteed it will be better some day in the future.
  1. It’s never too late to start over. From this moment on, vow that you will accept and love yourself as you are.
