Today I want to bring your attention to one of the most important questions we can ask ourselves:
Can you be the light for yourself?
Can you offer yourself the love that you crave?
Can you forgive yourself?
Can you have compassion for yourself?
Without saying anything else, I want to share with you this story:
“What are you afraid of?” the man asked his heart. The heart didn’t reply. “There is no one out there that will hurt you, I’ll protect you. I have grown strong, I’m a warrior now, you have nothing to fear.” Still the heart did not reply. “Tell me, heart. Was it our father? Was it our brothers? Was it one of our lovers? None of that matters now, I am a grown man, no one can do anything to us.” The heart remained quiet…closed. • The man grew frustrated. “Heart, you are a coward. Maybe you are defective. Maybe I just don’t have a heart that works properly. No wonder I can’t feel love.” The heart closed even tighter. • For months the man walked around, falling ever deeper into despair about his defective heart. Then one day the man grew very quiet. Quiet enough that he thought he could almost hear a whisper coming from his heart. He asked with all the compassion he was capable of, “Heart, what are you afraid of?” The heart whispered back, “You. I’m afraid of you.” The man cried. He had protected his heart from everyone but the one person that could hurt it the most– the tyrant inside.
The way you talk with yourself is the most important element that determines of the quality of your life.
Have compassion. You’ve walked a long way and it was far from easy. Yet, you made it. You’ve made it through every challenge in your life so far and you’ll for sure make it through whatever is showing up for you now.
You are stronger than you think. You have a courageous heart that is ready to be heard.
If you feel like you need more space, more solitude – now is the time for you to put yourself first. You are allowed to take a break. You are allowed to put yourself first.
You are your own greatest project in this life! If you fail to take care of yourself, you can’t really do anything else of value.
Don’t be your own worst enemy. Don’t stand in your own way.
Now it’s time for you to thrive. You have everything you need already within you. Tap into that energy and watch yourself glow.
You’re the one you’ve been waiting for. You are the hero that can save you.
Look yourself in the mirror and say hello to your best friend. Smile. You’ve got this!
I believe in you and so does your soul. Now let’s have some fun in this life 🙂
