“The whole cosmos has come together to create you. You carry the whole cosmos inside you. That is why, to accept yourself and to love yourself is an expression of gratitude.” Thich Nhat Hanh, Vietnamese Buddhist
Happy Valentine’s Day if you celebrate! It’s perfect given that 2022 is a year of relationships, love, and helping others among other things. I wonder why so many of us are so comfortable being critical of ourselves rather than embracing our value and worth! Do you seek validation from others or from yourself? Do you accept and love yourself? When I consider being in relationship with others self love and acceptance are so important! Mandy Hale, Author and speaker reminds us that, “If you don’t see your worth, you’ll always choose people who don’t see it either. When your self esteem rises, your life follows.” So true.
As I look back on my own journey of awakening and personal growth I can see the times when I doubted myself and looked for validation and recognition through others, my work and professional life. It took a long time for me to accept that there was more to me than my work accomplishments. With the help of my husband and sons I learned that they weren’t going to divorce me as I continued to become more self aware and live more consciously. I didn’t realize that I was afraid I wouldn’t be enough for them and possibly lose their love! Wow, it was an awareness that came after some deep meditation and inner exploration. So worth it!
Imagine how amazing you are as you carry the whole cosmos within you. Seeking answers and guidance can always be found when your thoughts are quiet and you bring your awareness to your heart space! Go within! What if you allow yourself to receive unconditional love as you do then meet yourself with love and acceptance rather than criticism? How would that feel? I would love to hear from you when you choose this experience. It’s amazing and can help you change your perspective about yourself and everything else. Mike Dooley, Author, speaker, and entrepreneur reminds us that, “Contrary to popular thinking, being worthy isn’t something you earn, it’s something you recognize.”
How you feel about you is what’s important! Are you enough for you? Remember, the whole cosmos came together to create you. How can you not be worthy of love and acceptance especially from yourself? It’s worth it to explore and learn to embrace who you are and to accept you! Have an amazing week and have fun exploring yourself! I’m sending lots of love to each one of you!
