You ARE love. You are beautiful. You are light.
I want every women, every person, to know their own value because there was a time when I didn’t know my own. Who am I kidding, there were entire decades when I didn’t know my own value.
We look into the eyes of a child and see endless goodness, possibility and beauty.
We were that child.
But, at some point the world takes over and we start doubting our own greatness. We have experiences that we turn into stories that we turn into beliefs about who we are and we let those tainted beliefs run our life.
I’m ugly. I’m worthless. I’m unloveable. I’m fat. I’m heartless.
While it’s painful to admit, I have believed every one of these things about myself, and more. I have cried myself to sleep. I have felt angry. I have felt abandoned by people I loved. I have felt utterly invisible and alone.
My journey to happiness, peace and freedom started when I began to question these beliefs. The moment I allowed myself the grace to consider that maybe, just maybe, I wasn’t so bad after all, my life began to change. It was when I allowed the veil of misapprehension to lift that I began the long journey back home to that childlike place of goodness, possibility and beauty.
The same is true for you. I want you to know that you matter. That not only are you loveable, but you ARE love. You are beautiful. You are light. And, you are not alone.
This song by India Arie says it better than I ever could.
If you know someone who doesn’t know her own beauty and worth, forward this email to her and let her know she’s not alone. Tell her how amazing she is as you remember your own gloriousness.
I bow to your greatness.
