Something to think about.
Be the best version of YOU has been added to the bottom of every post I write for more than a year. If I had to pick one positive affirmation to say to myself it would be this one. Those words bring me back to my intentions and purpose. They help me avoid the comparison trap. Those words remind me that being MY best is all I can do.
I recently read a post on Mind Body Green, 10 Signs That You’re Being the Best Version of Yourself and it’s been on my mind ever since.
How do I know if I’m being the best version of myself? Am I giving it my all? Am I being my very best?
According to Mind Body Green 10 signs you’re being the best version of yourself:
- You stop negative self-talk as soon as you see it coming.
- You know how to say no.
- You forgive yourself.
- You learn something new everyday.
- You celebrate your imperfections.
- You listen to your body.
- You embrace change as a growth opportunity.
- You’ve experienced failure.
- You step outside your comfort zone.
- You have relationships with people who make you feel good.
+1. You physically and mentally feel what it’s like to be the best version of yourself. It’s not as easily put into words as the 10 signs, but listen to your heart. Deep inside you just know.
It’s one of the most amazing feelings.
So, am I being the best version of myself? According to Mind Body Green? Yes. According to my heart? Yes.

If I had more time to chat I would also think out loud about intuitive eating (it’s not exactly what I thought), what I’m doing this week to move closer to living my dream and how much I love the #iamwoman series by the always inspiring Lorna Jane Clarkson.
How do you know when you’re being the best version of yourself? Have you ever even thought about it? If not, are you thinking about it now?
I’m thinking out loud with friends at Running with Spoons.
