Accepting and Liking Yourself; While Still Allowing Growth and Change.
Just because you notice potential growth and change areas in your life, doesn’t mean that you can’t like and love you now. Truly remarkable people are always growing and changing, and at the same time they find a way to be comfortable and love themselves exactly where they are in the present. How can you strike that balance between being realistic about areas for growth and improvement and practicing gentle, nurturing self love? It may help you to think about children. As parents and adults, we look at children with loving eyes, yet we know that they have many skills to develop. Perhaps you can look at yourself with the same loving eyes of acceptance and acknowledgement.
Practicing this kind of self love is a fast track to moving forward. It helps foster creativity and feeds our souls.
