Bring light into your life

Through self-acceptance we open our lives to endless possibilities. It brings healing, elevation, and clarity.

There is a funny thing about self-acceptance... Yes it brings healing, elevation, and clarity. Many times, however, when people think of self-acceptance, they only ponder the wonderful things they have yet to accept about themselves.

“ This means accepting that you may have broken hearts too; accepting that you also may have wronged a few along the way as well.”

I find that self-acceptance also includes accepting the ugly parts of your being. This is not to mean physical attributes that you despise although you were born with them; i.e. a big butt, small breast, or a big head. This means accepting that you may have broken hearts too; accepting that you also may have wronged a few along the way as well. Self-acceptance also means forgiving yourself for the hurt you caused the right person that unfortunately came at the wrong time. Self-acceptance at its simplest means to accept yourself and practice unconditional love: love of self, self-worth, and self-care.

Self acceptance is a big hurdle for many. It's hard to forgive others. However, what I find with the people I talk to, the executives I consult, and the people that I mentor, is that it's even harder for them to practice forgiveness of self. Today is your day for change, growth, and renewal, all of which are unleashed when you begin to practice self-acceptance.
