Shouting At The World How Amazing You Are!
I just want to tell the entire world how amazing you are.
How you bring so much joy to this world...
How you can light up a room with your wonderful smile...
How much you being alive and showing up does to make this world a better place...
Now, I know sometimes you don't feel that way. Sometimes you feel like you don't matter. Sometimes you feel like you're a disappointment. Sometimes you let those in your life down. Sometimes you feel you deserve to be alone. Guess what? You're human. You're imperfect. You're going to make mistakes. You're going to fail. That's part of what being human is all about.
And those negative things you feel? Those are lies. I don't want you to believe them. Make the choice to stop believing them. Those lies are poison and can fester and grow and destroy.
Please understand I'm not asking you to never feel negative feelings. Anger, sadness, grief...those feelings serve a purpose. We can use those feelings to understand who we don't want to be and how we don't want to feel. We can sit with those feelings and learn about how all feelings are temporary and eventually, anger will go away, sadness goes away. It's the negative beliefs that lead you away from loving yourself that are the poison.
Being human means you get some good with some bad (hopefully more good than bad, but you get my point). Being human means you get to experience LOVE. You get to learn about forgiveness. You get to learn how to stand up, dust yourself off and show up again and again. That's what makes life worth living.
Choose to tell a better story about yourself to yourself and magic will happen. I promise you that.
