BE Yourself. Sounds like a pretty simple statement and something you have probably heard since you were a young child, but in honesty and truth, could you actually say you've completely lived out this principle?
It's easy to embrace the parts of us that we like and the parts that seem acceptable to the world, but what about the parts we keep hidden? The parts we hide because of shame, fear of judgement, insecurity, guilt, or mere dissatisfaction. I can guarantee you, we all have parts of us that we keep hidden.
What if I told, learning how to embrace even those hidden parts of you would set you free and boost your life to another level. There is something magical about self love. And each level of self love that you unlock, it gets better and better. If self love means acceptance, then the more you accept and embrace your self, the better life can be.
When we keep our deepest fears and desires burried within us, we often dont realize how much they effect our ability to show up in the world. We also don't see realize how suppressing memories, pains, and other parts of our stories and truths, actually put limits on our abilty to build relationships, thrive, and become successful. Well I'm telling you, embrace that truth. Embrace that ugly truth. Embrace whatever keeps you from completely loving yourself. Embrace whatever you haven't forgave your self or another person for. Embrace that failure. Embrace those imperfections. Embrace that lesson.
You must take back your power. There is power in both love and fear. Which one would you rather feed? I vote love, hands down.
Embracing your truth will allow you to feel so much lighter. Carrying burdens sucks. Carrying baggage is heavy. Lighten your load, let that mess go, walk in your truth, and be free.
