Do you ever find that your thoughts are at war with each other or your actions do not match your intentions?
It is an uncomfortable place to be, when you are not at peace with yourself. As you go through the day and you catch yourself arguing with yourself internally or putting yourself down. Stop and let the thought go and do not give it any credence. If your actions do not match your intentions today and you judge yourself for not doing what you said you would do. Stop and invite forgiveness in and be gentle with yourself.
You’re doing the very best you can, even when you don’t feel like you are.
Making peace with ourselves, starts every minute of every day. We are not perfect beings, we make mistakes and we don’t always love ourselves as we should. Every day we can offer a tiny bit of peace and loving-kindness to ourselves. That peace and loving-kindness is transformative and it can heal the wounds inside of us that we have created.
The work that we do for ourselves, is not fruitless or luxurious it emanates out to the world. If we commit ourselves to creating inner peace, the world becomes more peaceful.
Fight the urge to fight with yourself.
Love + Light
