Note to self: I am not broken, and neither are you...

“When you believe without knowing you believe that you are damaged at your core, you also believe that you need to hide that damage for anyone to love you. You walk around ashamed of being yourself. You try hard to make up for the way you look, walk, feel. Decisions are agonizing because if you, the person who makes the decision, is damaged, then how can you trust what you decide? You doubt your own impulses so you become masterful at looking outside yourself for comfort. You become an expert at finding experts and programs, at striving and trying hard and then harder to change yourself, but this process only reaffirms what you already believe about yourself — that your needs and choices cannot be trusted, and left to your own devices you are out of control”

Today take a moment to feel the ground beneath you, stop what you are doing and breath in this great big world that we are each an integral part of. Feel how supported you are. Quiet your mind and allow whatever is present in your body be there without judgment. Give every feeling and sensation space to just be. Open your heart and breath in the love of the universe. It’s time to stop seeking a fix, and start allowing the goodness and sweetness of life within you to bloom. You are whole, complete, and perfectly imperfect right now… without exception. There is no external fix for your body, your mind, or your soul…. Allow what is there to heal and grow on its own and you will find…. there was nothing broken to begin with… You were lovable all along. 

I love you,
