Life is about slumbering and awakening. It’s about falling off the wagon, the exercise routine, the diet, the spiritual practice. And yet we can be our biggest critic when we do stumble! Anyone who appears to always be perfectly aligned is most likely not being fully authentic. Today, cut yourself a break and stop trying to fix yourself and everyone around you. In truth, we are human, and making mistakes, falling back into old patterns and thinking our way into more chaos is what being human is all about. Today, if you should stumble, fall, or maybe even capsize, allow yourself to have compassion and simply laugh at your humanness. You in truth are not broken, just human! At the end of our days, all your so called mistakes really won't make any difference at all. In the end it only really matters is how kind we are to one another and just as important how kind and compassionate we are with ourselves. Today, set your intentions to be kind!
Just for today, I do not fix my problems. I fix my thinking and my problems fix themselves. I cannot learn other people's lessons for them. They must do their own work and they will do it when they are ready. When I make a mistake, I realize that it is all part of the learning process. I now choose to accept and love myself exactly as I am. I am safe and everything is working out for my highest good.
