Hello Gratitude … Hello To The Power In Self Acceptance.
Hello gratitude this week for time spent in nature.
Time to cleanse my soul.
Time to reset my sightsand remember gratitude.
I realize for me to see and experience the good in lifeI must make it a daily conscious practice.
I have to over ride my fear collectingwhen my mindpasses over so many situationspulling in so much worry and anxietylike a magnet pulling iron filament.
Hello Gratitude … Hello To The Power In Self Acceptance.
Hiking in naturesoothes my souland connects me to a higher powerand calms my sprit.
I am realizing in lifethere will probably always be situations I can't controlsituations that break my heartand fill me with fear …
But I am now realizing more and morethat slipping down a rabbit hole serves no one.
Instead I must grow more courageand faith.
Do good where I can.
Hello Gratitude … Hello To The Power In Self Acceptance.
In this postI wrote about the importanceandthe power of self acceptance.
It has occurred to me recentlyeven self acceptance is an on going daily processrather than just an epiphany moment.
It is so easy to slip back intocritical self talk.Since I am not at the point that I can say the critical voices have left me altogether …
but ...I can reach back into self acceptancewhen I  picture my six year old self.I can connect with that imagein a protective and nurturing mannerand ask my adult self if that is a proper self conversation for her.
Would I be OK
with anyone else treating
her that way?
Hello Gratitude … Hello To The Power In Self Acceptance.
I have found not only practicing gratitude life changingbut self acceptance as well.
As I consciously practiceself acceptance
~ in offering my self grace.
~ Reminding myself perfection in self or lifeis a myth

~ Respecting the idea I am only humanand have always done the bestwith what I knew when.

When I began to change my internal voiceto a calmermore positive and self nurturing voice
something else in my lifebegan to change dramatically.
Hello Gratitude … Hello To The Power In Self Acceptance.
The kinder and more accepting I became of myself
the kinder and  more accepting I became of others.
The more loving and understanding eyesI had for myself
without even tryingI automatically began to see everybody else with more love and understanding.
I began to seehow ultimately connected we all are.
Hello Gratitude … Hello To The Power In Self Acceptance.
The more I can realize we are all connected

the more

 jealousy, competitiveness 
and
comparison can drop away
to be replaced with a spirit of supportand
gratitude for the journey.
I truly had no ideawhen I opened my mind to the idea of self acceptanceafter almost a lifetime of self loathingthat the ramificationsfor my feeling towards otherswould be so dramatic.
If learn not to judge myself so harshlyandinstead offer myself graceand acknowledge my own humanity
there is actuallya most beautiful gift in the shift
Learning to seeeveryoneand everything else differently.
For this shift in life perspectivemy heart is over flowing with gratitude this week.
