How "art" you today?
In the hustle to find acceptance for ourselves among others, we often don't have the time to ask the question of how much loved I am by me? Human brain is complicated. It is programmed to find acceptance for ourselves in others. Well, you will certainly not find it unless you have acceptance for yourself. Time is the key here. Positivity is the lock. Practicing a positive self image is a journey. A journey full of disappointments and failure. To cultivate positivity you must let go of all your negative emotions. The question is how does one do that? Acceptance and forgiveness. Practice the art of accepting and forgiving. I ACCEPT MYSELF. I FORGIVE MYSELF, one day at a time. If you don't accept yourself, only you can change that. And how do you do it? By forgiving yourself for not giving yourself the acceptance you deserve. Once you reach the end of this journey you will stop looking for acceptance in others. Perhaps the mind plays tricks on you. You see, when you do not face yourself, when you can not accept yourself, you run to others. Only you can love you. This is the mantra you should live by. Positivity comes around when you cultivate it. It's a tiny seed that grows with nourishment. Once fully grown the fruits will be love, love that you will find for yourself. A kind of love that will give you inherent satisfaction and a sense of peace within yourself. Surround yourself with people who give you good vibes, who uplift you, who see you for you. Feel a little more positive about yourself than yesterday. Practice acceptance and forgiveness, one day at a time.
