Are You Honoring Yourself?
Release your fears, doubts and feeling of unworthiness. It’s time to find your true self, your gifts and your passion in life. When you are clear on who you are and let that joy shine through to others, then, you are making a difference in other people’s lives around you.
Just for today, choose to honor yourself and see yourself as a wonderful person who is kind, worthy, loving and good enough. You are an incredible person who touches a lot of lives, even if you don’t know how you touch others. It is like the ripple effect. When you smile at someone in the grocery store, you made them feel special. They in turn smile at someone else at the gas station and the smile travels along to other people. Who knows? Maybe that smile traveled to someone on the other side of the world!
Choose to honor yourself on a deeper level. Start validating yourself. Don’t look for love, worthiness or approval from other people. One must feel the self-love first before it can go out into the world and come back to you. The worthiness you seek comes from within you and then it goes out into the world.
The more self-love and honor you have, the less you will experience self-abuse. Self-abuse comes from self-rejection and self-rejection comes from the image of what it means to be perfect and never measuring up to it.
Self-love and honoring one’s self is about being kind to yourself, resting when you are tired, eating when you are hungry, and thinking kind thoughts about yourself. Remember: You are a wonderful person who is kind, worthy, loving and good enough. Just for today, why not honor the person who you are. What can you do to honor yourself today?
