What's On My Mind...

Saturday, March 21, 2010
The last few weeks have been intriguing. I've realized, in myself, patterns I thought were long broken. I see things now that have been fear-based that, for a time, I thought were logic grounded... and I'm ready and willing to change. I opened up Marianne Williamson's "Enchanted Love" to a random page and a prayer popped up. I'm going to hold onto this prayer for the next week or so. It fits in perfectly with the next CHOOSE YOU course I'll be teaching:

"Dear God, I don't wish to be a child anymore. I don't wish to be held back anymore. I don't wish to waste my life. Deliver me to new realms, repair me where I am broken, and ready my heart for everything. Thank you, God. Amen."

The Beauty of You

Tis' the season for giving. What have you given to yourself for being perfect just the way you are? Have you serenaded yourself? Have you looked in the mirror and said, out loud, "I love you just the way you are!" What do you tell yourself when nobody's around? Are they words of love or words of fear?

The biggest thing you'll ever want to learn is not how to be a better person but how to be a more loving person and you don't learn that by loving OTHER people more; you have to start within and the only way to truly understand what it means to love more is to have more love to love with. There's only one way to get more love and it's by giving more love to yourself.

When you say things like "I'm not good at that" or "I always mess up" or "I'm a clutz" or "I've never been good with money" what you're really saying is "I'm not good enough." And that's a lie.

The bigger lie? That who you are has to change in order for you to be acceptable, especially to you. You don't have to lose another pound, get paid one single dollar more, clean the house any better, or do anything to deserve more. Right now, right where you are, you deserve the best.

There's no ifs, ands, or whens to that. You are magnificent! You are brave! You are astounding! You are and it's about time you started giving back to yourself by calling you by your true name. God operates in you and through you. You couldn't be half the negative things you say to yourself if you knew just how divine you truly are.

Tis the season to love yourself more. Look in the mirror today and give yourself a big hug and kiss! You deserve it!
