~ Louise Hay~
Many people seek to emulate those they admire; however, those they admire are typically just being true to who they are. Authenticity teaches us to embrace our quirks and talents, to allow them to shine with joy and creates space for us to explore undiscovered facets of our true nature.
Those who stand in judgment of others are rejecting those same attributes within themselves. By practicing self-acceptance, we can teach others to accept themselves as well.
Self-judgment is based upon false perception. Think of 10 things that you love about yourself. Speak to yourself with a loving heart. Be supportive and kind throughout the process. You are a spark of the Divine expressing itself in human form for a little while. Choose to make the adventure a joyful one.
