I love Gandhi’s words, what he believed, and what he stood for in his life.
My sister-in-law commented on a post, and it really hit me deeply. It begs the question: What if WE were to perceive of ourselves and others as she states God perceives of us?
“We cannot disappoint God, because He knew-even expected-that we would make mistakes. So, when we do, it is no surprise to Him, and He is not disappointed in us. Our DIVINE WORTH to Him is intact, regardless of our (human) shortcomings.”
How beautiful. Thank you, Clair. I needed that reminder.
To fully love, accept, and appreciate ourselves and others, exactly as we are now, is to remember our divine worth, regardless of our shortcomings and mistakes we experience while in these human bodies, having this human experience.
To love, accept, and appreciate ourselves and others, NO MATTER WHAT, is a divine gift.
Can you imagine a parent that, from birth, tells the child, “There is NOTHING you could ever say, do, or be that would make me love you less. I will NEVER be disappointed in what you truly are to me. You can DO better, and therefore enjoy better results, but I will NEVER love you less.” What if we were to make a habit to repeat this to OURSELVES in the mirror each morning? What an empowering, healing way to start the day!
There is NOTHING you could ever say, do, or be that would make me love you less. I will NEVER be disappointed in what you truly are to me. You can DO better, and therefore enjoy better results, but I will NEVER love you less.
We all know there is always room for improvements in EVERY area of our human lives. There are, and forever will be, opportunities for human progression. But as Jim Rohn teaches: “Success is not to be pursued. It is to be attracted by the person you become.” To this, I add, “While fully loving, accepting, and appreciating yourself, EVERY step along the way.”
SUCCESS IS NOT TO BE PURSUED. IT IS TO BE ATTRACTED BY THE PERSON YOU BECOME, WHILE FULLY LOVING, ACCEPTING, AND APPRECIATING YOURSELF ALL ALONG THE WAY.
This world is full of darkness and light. It is full of destruction and creativity. The opportunities for learning what to do to always be upgrading and personal improvements comes to us through experiencing the contrasts of this human life. The personal improvements we make help us live a life full of light and creativity. The personal improvements we make uplift, inspire, and motivate not just us, but everyone around us as well. Others who are inspired to improve then choose to go on and do the same in their lives and it affects everyone around them.
SOMETIMES, THE MOST USEFUL THING WE CAN DO FOR OTHERS IS TO TAKE BETTER CARE OF OURSELVES.
The personal progress and improvements we make in our own lives helps us to live a meaningful, fulfilling life full of joy, kindness, happiness, and love. We add value to our lives and the lives of others as we work hard to improve ourselves in every way.
Having a morning routine, goals, and a personal progress plan is IMPERATIVE to the level of success we achieve in the personal progress realm.
WHEN WE FAIL TO PLAN, WE PLAN TO FAIL.
Today I will work hard to improve and progress to add value to my life and the lives of those around me.
