Yes. You are perfect, just as you are. At the same time, we can be working to become a more authentic us, to evolve.
Too often, we beat ourselves up for not having it all figured out. For not having the things or money or appearance society tells us we should have. It's okay. Learning to accept and love ourselves as is, if you will, is a process. If we can't love ourselves now, why would we love ourselves with a new car or a bigger home? Why would I love myself more if I had plastic surgery to remove signs of aging, if I don't like what's inside? If you can't learn to love you for who YOU really are, no outer changes will ever fix that. It's taken me far too long to learn this lesson.
I am an aging, saggy, fat, non-conforming woman. I also am a beautiful, sparkling, intelligent, passionate, talented, warrior and goddess. I choose to embrace who I am and I remind myself of my positive attributes daily. I am more than my body, or what others think of it, but I also have learned to love my body, for getting me through everything I have endured in my lifetime. I will be writing more about this, but for now, know that you are a miracle. You are a masterpiece and a work in progress. You are worthy of unconditional love and joy. Honor yourself and know that I see you and you are beautiful. 💙#youareenough #fearisa4letterword #ibelieveinyou #unconditionallove #joytherapy #staymagical #sparkle #shine #hatersgonnahate #beautiful #selfcare #investinyourself
