Love Yourself

Bright Moments

We spend a lot of time wondering what others think of us.

So, to increase the odds that “they” will like us,

We tweak ourselves to be more of what we imagine they want us to be:
Smarter, funnier, more aggressive, less aggressive, neater, less talkative, more
attentive, taller, thinner, more sophisticated, less loud, something we’re not,
something we wish we actually could be.

It’s all so tempting to try because we long to be embraced by people who are important to us . . . at work, at home, wherever.

It’s also exhausting because we long to be embraced by people who are important to us . . . without having to change.

If that’s the case, why not start with yourself? Can you embrace yourself just as you are?

Can you love your heart, your thoughts, your flaws, your joys, your skills, your quirks and your sanctifications? Can you appreciate them; laugh at them; study, promote and respect them? They, after all, are what make you both intriguing and attractive.

You are wonderfully made, just as you are. You are powerfully connected, just as you are. You are an inspiration, an enigma and a treasure, just as you are. Love yourself, just as you are.
