The truth is I have always been enough. It has just now occurred to me to accept myself just the way I am with no apologies. Why is it we as human beings tend to look to others for our worth? We alter our bodies to conform to, a notion in time, of perfection. Guess what? It's all subject to change. If a good self image is dependent on how I look or how successful I am, then I am destined to go through life dissatisfied.
Our outer self is constantly in a state of flux as is our state of being in this world financially, relationally, intellectually, any way you look at it. Thank God my worth is not tied up in an of these things. It's not even tied up in how I behave at any given moment, be it good or bad. I am not my mistakes and neither are you. Mistakes are necessary to learn and grow. "Functionally a man is somewhat like a bicycle. A bicycle maintains its poise and equilibrium only so long as it's going forward toward something." Maxwell Maltz, m.d., Psycho-cybernetics pg 104
We were each created for a purpose. Once you find that purpose, the rest is cake. If I am all tied up in trying to perfect the package, the contents stagnate. True beauty come from that deep down recognition that I am enough. My purpose in this life is up to my creator, I am, today, accepting it and working toward perfecting it. Dear God, help me fulfill my purpose today with a happy heart. Amen
