“‘I love myself.’ the quietest. simplest. most powerful revolution. ever.” ~Nayyirah Waheed
We tend to shrink away from the idea of loving ourselves, as if it is too egotistical or conceited. The truth is that learning to truly love ourselves transforms everything. It is the most powerful revolution possible.
“Change is hard at first, messy in the middle, and gorgeous in the end.” ~Robin Sharma
It’s so easy to become discouraged with the process of change when we are at the beginning or middle of it, but when we can see it through, the results are always worth it!
“Don’t waste another second thinking that you’re failing when really all you’re doing is growing.” ~Chani Nicholas
Growth, by definition, leads us into the unknown, the unfamiliar, and the uncomfortable. It’s easy for that discomfort to make us think that we are failing as we find ourselves outside of the what we’ve always known and done. Don’t let yourself be fooled! Growth may be uncomfortable, but it’s always good!
“Wholeness does not mean perfection – it means embracing brokenness as an integral part of life.” ~Parker J Palmer
How do you treat the broken places in your life? Have you tried embracing them as a integral part of life? It is possible to embrace them even while working toward healing. That’s the way to wholeness.
“That which is not accepted is not transformed.” ~Jean-Ives Leloup
Accepting our wounds, our broken places, our weaknesses, our faults does not mean we have to like them or be grateful for their existence; it simply means accepting the reality of what is true about our lives in this moment. It is only when we can accept our reality that it is possible for it to be transformed into something more valuable.
