The most beautiful thing I know and that I feel is this new inner happiness that I know.
You're okay. In fact, actually, you're amazing. Before the mind clings to any argument that tries to talk you out of this recognition, can I share a few things with you?
1. I know, without doubt, that you are doing the best you can. In each moment, what we offer up, is whatever we are capable of offering. Yes, it may seem that your past moments were lacking somehow, but can I suggest that given the circumstances of being a human being, you did the best with what you had, and with where you were. I mean, really, if you could have done something better, you would have. Yes? If you had your hind-sight as present-sight, at the time, it could have been different. However, that's simply impossible. Since there is no life button called rewind, obviously the only rational thing to do would be to forgive yourself and appreciate the fact that you are seeing another way. In this, your past action might as well be seen as perfect, since growth would be an impossibility without recognizing such things.
2. Everyone who hates you, simply forgot that we are all learning, and your folly or life path, is simply reminding them to love their own journey. Also, it is giving you an opportunity to practice authenticity in your communication, since being yourself is what you crave. So if you feel led, it's totally okay to attempt to communicate to others your folly or life path, and extend appreciation to them for showing up as they are. Without them, without their reflection, you simply would never learn to stand on your own authority in complete love. So whether they hate you or love you, they are extremely valuable. They are perfectly imperfect, just as we all are. It's totally okay to celebrate this.
Likewise, celebrate the innocent and adorable insanity of our hate towards others, as if it's not okay for them to learn just like we are, but in their own way. If you are still convinced that they are impending on your sense of wellness, recognize that your potential for wellness does not exist in yesterday, or tomorrow, rather the potential exists only right now; and I'm willing to bet in this moment, no one is actually restricting the breath that allows you to be here.
3. Your future, is a mystery. It's literally not supposed to be known, not supposed to be secure, it's not supposed to play out like you think it should. No worries though, because this is the case for everyone. If we knew the future, we would avoid seeing what scares us, we would avoid our insecurities, we would avoid the depth of what we are because we would side step challenges and obstacles that help us grow. The growth you're looking for only happens when we immerse ourselves in the adventure, in the unknown. The good news is, you're still here. If you look back, there's been a billion things to worry about, a worry that didn't know if you'd make it to the right now; and... well, you're breathing aren't you? You really don't need to worry, just as life has already shown you a billion times, however you are allowed to. So no need to even worry about your worry. You can smile at the silliness of believing life won't work out, since the punch line will always be, "Oh, I'm still here."
Continue on my friend, continue on in your beautiful, cute, and playful way that sometimes remembers this, and sometimes forgets. Even that is okay. All is well, and you are amazing.
just as you are.
I am absolutely grateful and sending love out to Tiger Singleton and His school of blooming.

Keeping it real...some thing that I have been trying to do lately is that. Trying to find a way to still be myself when nothing is about me anymore. Struggles are so great for everyone and I am sure you have a long list as well. Not everyone is going to have the same challenges in life and sometimes the things that bother us the most are things that do not show up in our photo's. Invisible to others but they continue to eat at our souls until we have resolved them. So this is me , on a day that was nice. It is easy to post a photo after we have done our hair and picked out the perfect clothes, but on this day I did none of the above. I don't live near the ocean. I live on a small street in a small town in Missouri. In a small house. So my outlook is starting to change. Keeping it real. Wearing my sweatpants when I want. Brushing my hair less, maybe even cleaning less. Keeping it all together on the inside is much easier for me when I am not trying to keep it all together on the outside. I love gardening and am going to make this the best season ever, all while making a mess, lol. I read once, that one of your goals should be that when you have people over to your house, they should leave feeling better about themselves, not feeling better about you. And that totally meant why do I spend 4 hours cleaning when I know someone is coming by for 5 minutes? I must be crazy. So here I go, off to work and all the while ...keeping it so real people will be wondering all day what the heck is wrong with me :) and if your feeling the same way.... take the challenge and start just being you :)
