Step 1: Forgive yourself
The relationship we have with ourselves is the most complicated, because we can’t walk away from ourselves. We have to forgive every mistake we make. We have to deal with every ‘flaw’. We must find a way to love ourselves even in the most challenging moments.
And if you didn’t have parents who knew how to be with you as a child, It might be hard for you to know how to be with yourself as an adult.
May you stop waiting. Stop looking outside yourself and forgetting who you really are and what you deserve.
Step 2: Choose YOU
Every day we face challenges, fears, obstacles, and negativity that hit us with left jabs and right hooks. We get so caught up in the details of bills, job pressures, raising kids, fixing the house, car payments, trying to make a living and a hundred other to-dos, that we can’t even see over the piles of paper on our desk, let alone our future success.
But when times are tough and your bills are bigger than the balance in your checking account, or when your business has slowed down and you’re not sure what to do next, or when your future is uncertain and all feels hopeless…
I want you to remember this:
Life is easier to manage when you are on your own side!
Choosing to have joy is not naively thinking everything will be easy, it is courageously believing that there is still HOPE, even when things get hard.
