What is the greatest gift that we can give ourselves? That is an interesting question that has been asked and answered many times over. Some say love, some say forgiveness, some say grace… I think the answer is much more simple.
I think the greatest gift that we can give ourselves is acceptance. Let’s face it. We have all done or said something that we have regretted, wished we could change or take back. But in the moment, most of us do the things we do out of love for the people we care about.
So what if we stumble and fall? What if we make mistakes? So what if we hurt people we love? It is how you choose to respond to those situations that creates the you in the situation. Look back with open eyes and an open mind. Did you approach the situation from truly a place of caring and wanting to help or did it come from a place of ego? Then respond appropriately from there. No one is perfect! I know every single time I try to walk on water I SINK! And I can guarantee anyone reading this does as well.
So the message here is to just accept yourself with all of your flaws and realize they are what makes you the amazing, beautiful, wonderful, perfectly you for the world that is uniquely YOU! Sure we will lose people along our path of life, and that is okay. Everyone crosses our path for different reasons. Just keep your chin up and accept you for you. Because you are making the world a better place just by being in it.
Light and Blessings,
