You may “think” you know who you are, but do you really? You may get to a point in life when you want to have a deeper understanding about yourself. Have you ever asked yourself these questions: who am I; what am I doing here; where am I going; who and what should I believe? The truth is you already have the answers. You have to dig deep, go within, and be honest with yourself. It might take a while to figure out who you really are, but you will if you express desire. I strongly encourage you to meditate. This is when you listen to the divine source and connect with your inner being to get all the answers.
As we come together for different celebrations around the world during this holiday season, let’s keep one thing in mind. Love. Choose to love people for who they truly are. Choose to love people regardless of their race, color, gender, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, profession, political beliefs, etc. Love is pure, love is positive, and love is powerful. Love your Creator, love yourself, love everyone, and love life.
Why are we so hard on ourselves? Sometimes we treat other people better than we treat ourselves. At times, we may feel we’re not good enough. We need to focus on progression instead of perfection. Accept yourself, be kind and gentle with yourself, lift yourself up, respect yourself, believe in yourself, encourage yourself, be grateful for yourself, and love yourself!
The most valuable gift you can give someone is your time. Spend a small amount of your time today by giving someone your undivided attention. It could be an elderly person, co-worker, friend, relative, etc. Parents please take the time from your hectic schedule and pay attention to your children. They would much rather spend time with you than any material object. You may even want to devote some time to yourself or spend time with your pet. This is a great act of caring and compassion.
We all have one thing in common. Each and every one of us has flaws. Now I know some of you don’t want to admit it, but we all do. Why are we so afraid to expose our flaws? Is it because we’re afraid of what other people might think of us? We need to realize that we are beautiful even with our imperfections.
Let’s change the way we think about ourselves. It’s too exhausting trying to be someone we’re not. We are going to work on and undo what society has done to us for decades. Besides, how do we know for sure they are actually ‘flaws?’ A flaw could be beauty in disguise. From now on, let’s just be straightforward. We are always flaunting our good characteristics, but what about the parts we ‘think’ other people won’t like? Because guess what… they may have the very same one(s)! Love everything about yourself. You will be so much happier!
Does a certain person or an animal bring you happiness? What about your home, car, or a material object? Are you happy with you? Are you happy when there’s no one or nothing else there? Being happy with yourself is the most important part of life. Why would you not be happy with youself? Are you “thinking” about the past and what you did or should’ve done? Are you worried about something (that hasn’t even happened yet)? Seriously, ask yourself if you make you happy. If your answer is no, or I don’t know, then you’ve got to dig deep and figure out why. No one knows you better than you. 🙂
