Without giving ourselves compassion,
we can’t be compassionate.
When we judge ourselves harshly,
we can’t be accepting.
If we feel that our lives lack,
we can’t give generously.
When we feel that we are not enough,
we can’t lift up and applaud others.
When we take ourselves too seriously,
we can’t enjoy life.
If we don’t love ourselves unconditionally,
we can’t truly love others without conditions.
If we aren’t honest with ourselves,
we can’t grow and change.
These are truths I’ve gleaned over the years
of re-inventing myself.
Of becoming the person I was truly created to be.
Your life is amazing. If you are breathing, you have something to be grateful for. And gratefulness will create joy. It will bring abundance (I’m not talking monetary value, but the value of life, friends, and passions that fill your soul.)
And just in case you were wondering…..there is enough for all of us.
We have a tendency to view the world from our little worm hole
and think that we are never, ever going to be enough, have enough, or live enough.
I used to be like that.
Then I realized that there are billions of people. Millions of opportunities.
We live in a great big world.
And though you may not especially like your life right now, it can change.
Change is always possible.
Of course, it means conquering the limiting emotion of fear.
It means you have to stop lying to yourself.
To change means becoming vulnerable.
YIKES!! No way! I can’t do it! I’m so afraid! It will hurt too much.
And what will happen to me?
Change will happen. Better will happen. Abundance will happen.
So will love, joy, adventure, assurance, confidence, and fulfillment.
I’m rooting for you, cheering you on as you make wise, healthy choices toward becoming more so you can give more.
For it’s in giving that we grow toward abundance.
Thank you for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful week.
Love and hugs, Passionista
