Forgive Yourself

Happy Wednesday! It’s another day to embrace our gift of life. It’s another day to do what we didn’t get a chance to do yesterday. May we abundant our day for ourselves and our family. May our work and intentions be our prayer for good for ourselves and our family! Amen!

Have you taken time alone to be in your own company? If so, what is it like? Are you chastising yourself or are you speaking kindly to yourself or maybe both? As for me it was both, but I’m more into complimenting and speaking kindly to myself. I feel more ambitious when I compliment myself. Trust me there were some difficult days that I really had to push myself through. It’s a matter of finding balance in resting between my projects so I don’t become overwhelmed.

Back to sitting in our own company with me, myself, and I. It’s imperative to have conversations with yourself. It’s kinda like talking to yourself. It’s totally normal to hear yourself talk to make sense of things that you sometimes don’t understand. If it don’t make sense in my mind, then I would say it out loud to myself for clarity. Often times I may dwell on it as I search for an intuitive understanding.

Be very careful with how you label and speak to yourself. When we say “my dumb or stupid self this and that”, we are unintentionally defining ourselves for how people to classify us. We are not dumb nor stupid. Forgive yourself for all the negative names you’ve called yourself. Replace them with encouraging words such as amazing, strong, inspiring, etc.

Do some retrospection of how you treated yourself. Write it down in your journal or any kind of notebook. For each hurtful and negative things you’ve done to yourself acknowledge it, forgive yourself, and replace it with something positive. Make a pact with yourself to not ever hurt yourself nor tolerate anyone/anything to hurt you. You are enough and you are amazing! Never forget how unique you are. We’re not created in this world to be alike. The bible said we are “beautifully and wonderfully made”. Each of us have our own identity which is tailored specifically for us no matter how much we tried to be like someone else. Eventually we’ll step outside of the shell to be our authentic self.

I leave this message with you all to take time with yourself. Take time to forgive yourself. Take time to love, respect, and encourage yourself. Take the time to heal and be your authentic self! Abundance, prosperity, happiness, and good health!
