Self love and acceptance are critical in the pursuit of “authentic” happiness. Not one single detail of who you are is a mistake-it’s just that your journey is one that only you have the power to endure.
Be patient with yourself-you’re doing the best you can. Life has a way of catching us off guard. It seems as though the moment we conquer one obstacle, there is another one evolving. Experiencing “low” points is inevitable-we all fall on “hard” times whether it be emotionally, financially, spiritually, socially-sometimes things don’t pan out the way we hope. This is why it’s important to be in tune with ourselves. When life comes at you sideways, your inner peace can help you feel your way through. I’ve never heard of a life without challenges, but contrary to popular belief-you have the power to create peace in your life. A peace that cannot be diluted by the “ugly” in this world.
If we never have to overcome-how will we measure our strength? Experiences-both good and bad, provide us with an opportunity to acquire wisdom and to challenge ourselves. I speak of strength, not with regard to physicality, but to our mentality, spirituality, character-the things that really matter. I know sometimes it feels like the whole world is moving and you’re standing still, but approach these “moments of stillness” as an opportunities to tune in-to get to know yourself-to plan your next move. “Stillness” is a critical yet often overlooked element in progress.
