Be kind and gentle with yourself as you grow and change.
“Within grief and loss there is always longing – for wholeness, for harmony, for connection. Trying to ‘move on’ too quickly denies the value of inner exploration.”
Most people treat those they love and respect with compassion. They offer supportive words, a hug when required and provide kindnesses to lift the spirit. But when the focus goes inward, the voice of criticism appears. We tend to be much harder on ourselves, subjecting the psyche to an endless diatribe of expectation, recriminations and judgment.
It’s time to see the sacredness in yourself, to honor the past that has brought you to this moment and to celebrate the strength and wisdom you have cultivated along the way. Choosing to see the perfection in the imperfection is a good place to begin. Make a point to observe your self talk and focus on being loving and supportive only. Do not allow corrosive words to create patterns of limitation and lack. You are here to discover Oneness with all life and the unique energy you bring to the planet with your smile.
The love you have for yourself determines your ability to recognize and receive love from others.
Today my intention is to nurture myself with kind words, conscious choices and supportive action.
