#Positive #Affirmation of the #day : "If I wait until I become perfect before I love myself, I will waste my whole life. I am already perfect right here and right now." The most important decision of your life, the one that will affect every other decision you make, is the commitment to love and accept yourself. It directly affects the quality of your relationships, your work, your free time, your faith, & your future. Why, then, is this so difficult to do?
We’re taught by society that our worth is found in the idols of our culture—technology, status, youth, sex, power, money, attractiveness, and romantic relationships. If you base your self worth on the external world, you’ll never be capable of self-love. Your inner critic will flood you with thoughts of “I’m not enough, I don’t have enough, and I don’t do enough.” Feelings of lack are neverending. Every time a goal is reached or you possess the next big thing, your ego will move the line.
Feeling worthy requires you to see yourself with fresh eyes of self-awareness and love. Acceptance and love must come from within. You don’t have to be different to be worthy. Your worth is in your true nature, a core of love and inner goodness. You are a beautiful light. You are love. We can bury our magnificence, but it’s impossible to destroy. Loving ourselves isn’t a one time event. It’s an endless, ongoing process. It begins with you, enfolding yourself in your own affection and appreciation.
Self-rejection and neglect is painful. You deserve to be happy. You have a right to be accepted and loved. If necessary, seek help from a support group, counselor, or coach. It’s the best investment you can make. Because we are all interconnected, when I love me, I also love you. Together through our love, we can heal ourselves, each other, and the world. Love is our purpose, our true calling. It begins with and within each of us!
Remind yourself of your worthiness before getting out of bed. Tell yourself you love yourself!
