Into Your Self
I know I do not embrace let alone accept all the aspects of myself! Loving those aspects is even more difficult to do at times. I know for me the love I express for myself comes from the care and kindness I give to myself. Then comes the compassion to embrace myself as well as the love to accept myself!
- The Good.
- The Bad.
- The Light.
- The Dark.
- The Beautiful.
- The Ugly.
Grace . . . Gratitude . . . Acceptance . . . Most of All Love!
I know it has been a little akward to have a dialogue with myself, but how do I know what I need if I do not ask myself questions! I am slowly learning how to ask myself the right questions too. I come up with some pretty good answers at times too. It makes for great practice in learning more about myself and who I am!
Questions To Ask Yourself
- How Do You Feel?
- Why Do You Do the Things That You Do?
- Why Do You Think the Things That You Think?
- What Do You Find Useful and What Can You Let Go Of?
- What Is Serving You and What Is NOT Serving You?
- What Adjustments, Shifts or Changes Can You Make?
Searching . . . Seeking . . . Discovering
It pretty much starts from within when it comes to discovering more about myself and who I am! I am getting to know my values and behaviors as well as my attitudes and perceptions. I am not all that amazed that I have certain tendencies and habits that circle around and around again. No wonder I do not receive different results! This is where change or at least adjustments need to be made because different actions lead to different outcomes.
I also have to let go of the ego and the attitude at times to see change, especially good and positive change! It is so easy to play the blame game. I am finding that a shift made internally pretty much sets it to right externally. An important part of that internal shift is being responsible and taking accountability for myself and my actions!
Stretching . . . Changing . . . Growing
I have talked about not giving up, especially on yourself! I recently read that you have to show up for yourself and for other people too!
We ALL Are . . .
I know I am not alone when it comes to being on a journey of self! It is very much a process that is going to take time. Yes, there may be more questions than answers, but that is what makes it an ADVENTURE!
