“[O]ur true nature is not some ideal that we have to live up to. It’s who we are right now, and that’s what we can make friends with and celebrate.” ~ Pema Chodron, Wisdom of No Escape
Living up to the “you” you think you should be, or the one that others think you should be, is exhausting. Thankfully I have discovered the wisdom in letting go of the idealized me (the one that never existed and never will) and befriending and celebrating the “me” who I really am, the one I was created to be.
Sharing love and light with others first requires that you recognize and cultivate love and light within yourself. So simple. But far from easy, especially if you feel you’re not measuring up to that mythical, perfect person known as the ideal you. But in each moment you can choose to affirm your true nature, the authentic you, the love and light within you … the one just waiting to emerge and thrive.
I embrace and celebrate the perfection of my imperfection. I love, accept and celebrate my true nature as a wonderful, beautiful light who is emerging and thriving in every moment.
Having trouble saying that affirmation with confidence and conviction? Check out these 17 ways you can learn to love yourself right now from abundancetapestry.com.
