How about loving yourself up instead of beating yourself up?
To love yourself without condition. It means you are good enough. You make the grade. You have succeeded. There is nothing else you have to do to be loved. You are worthy right now. Just the fact that you have shown up is enough.
What is holding you back from flat out adoration? Is it something you’ve done? Something you haven’t done? Something you thought about doing? Something you’ve said?
Ok. So, you did. Shame is not a useful emotion. It is keeping you right there; wherever you were when you did this thing you are beating yourself up about. It is time to move on. Let it go.
You used whatever information you had at the time to do this thing that you did. You have different information now. It is time to do something new - from a new place, a pro-active place, rather than a re-active place.
Your point of power is in this moment; it is not in yesterday. All that you actually have is right now. Use it to love yourself.
Lavishly and ridiculously love yourself. Smile when you see you in the mirror. Wave with joy - as if you are meeting someone you can’t wait to be with! It is YOU! You are here! You look great! We are so happy you came to join us!
You know, we’ve been waiting for you to notice your magnificence. WE have always seen it; you have been wearing those dark shades and didn’t notice. You are brilliantly, wonderfully and perfectly imperfect, just like us! We are all here to celebrate our collective selves. Beauty is an assemblage of imperfections, and damn, we are beautiful.
We are one, and as you step into your power, forgive and love yourself, I do as well. Hurry up.
