Don't take yourself so seriously!

In Life, it is not what happens to you, but how you handle it. If Life gives you lemons, make lemonade. If the lemons are rotten, take out the seeds and plant them in order to grow new lemons. Sometimes when we get very close to our dreams, we become so frightened of having what we really want that we begin to sabotage ourselves. As hard as it is to imagine, we are actually sabotaging ourselves to protect ourselves! We are protecting ourselves because even success can be frightening. Making a big move, having the ideal job, earning really good money, can be a very scary undertaking because what if you fail? That self questioning represent the part of you that’s very afraid of the fulfillment of your dreams. Often, it is your inner child that holds the key to your fears.

Today, it’s time to be very loving, patient, and gentle with yourself. Reassure your inner child that in truth all will be well; love your inner child and make it feel safe. And honor your inner child today by stop taking things so seriously and have some fun. After all, that is truly the purpose of this life to love, to learn and to have some fun along the way.


Just for today, I honor my inner child by remembering to play and have some fun. I allow the playful child within me to emerge and have some fun. I recognize that loving myself and thinking joyful happy thoughts is the quickest way to create a happy joyful life. I am loved. I am safe and all is truly well in my world. and so it is.
