Begin where you are – easy-easy-easy- and keep it simple.
Start where you are in each moment. You can begin again and be kind to yourself—gentle and compassionate.
Start where you are. Make a decision to make a commitment to your wellbeing. Decide that Love is where it’s at and that you are going to love yourself, consistently and persistently. You know you can do it and figure it out because others have done it. It can be as easy or as hard as you like.
You are the decider and perceiver of your life. You get to decide what love looks like and it will shift and change as you grow and learn; as you open yourself to the possibilities that await you.
So once again, I remind you lovingly, begin now, exactly where you are. What is the next step to take on this path after you’ve decided to commit to your well-being? I suggest you find one thing that you like about yourself. Just one thing, and believe it, at least a little. Focus on that. Write it down. One thing. An example may be, “I have a beautiful smile. I am a very caring person. I am willing to learn and grow. I love my sense of humor. “ This is a place to start and I am sure you can add and think of your own ideas. What you focus on will grow; you will think of more things that you like about yourself — consistently and persistently. When you doubt or start to think about what you don’t like or would like to change—just release it gently and have a little chat with that part. “You could say thankyou for trying to protect me but I am going to try the way of love. I am going to practice the life of self-appreciation. I am going to live another way. Thankyou , but no!” Everything is a part of you and this is a part that was there for you, so forgive yourself and let it go. Bit by bit and step by step, you are building a new and stronger, loving foundation. You can do this. Consistently and persistently. You are beginning anew. Your younger self is happier already that the adult self is taking charge. This is beautiful. You are loved and you matter.
Self-appreciation feels good. Isn’t this what we all desire underneath all of the things we want? Anything we want, whether it be more money, new clothes, a healthy relationship, a holiday, anything we want is simply because we think it will make us feel better. We don’t have to wait. We can feel better now, right where we are. Start where you are and find the one thing about you that you like and build from that. Build and build—consistently and persistently until you are in the mansion of your dreams (metaphorically). Use your imagination. Love where you are and who you are. Love, love, love-I cannot say it enough. Love. Tell yourself, “I am making a difference. I am Love. I am Loved and I am Loving. Be the way you are. Make peace with you; where you are and how you are. If you are overweight, love every cell of yourself. Stop beating yourself up. Please stop. I ask you sincerely and from my heart. I tell you knowingly and from a place of deep understanding, you are more, and better than you could ever know.
Begin to shine and let the light in. Open the door and let it in. Find the courage and be brave. You can do this. It is a beautiful, beautiful journey of self discovery and self honouring and self appreciation. It is who and what you have been seeking. Come home to you and Love YouJ
