2/100

Good morning! As I begin my journey, I am incredibly touched by the quote I received this morning in one of my daily practice books:

“Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now, and make a brand new end.” — From a book called “As We Understood”

 
Todays focus in my journey was to list out all of the things that I felt shame about in my past or in my present and to rearrange how they look to me, so that I can love and accept them. I do not want my journey to start from a place of FIXING, but rather from a place of self-love and self-acceptance to create authentic self-expression and an unshakable connection to Christ.

I listed 11 things that I felt shame or embarrassment about. I journaled on each of these, how to learn to love them about me, and found that although a couple of them were no longer serving me, most of them were things that I found compassion for and there were even some that I realized were simply the other side of the coin that made me very powerful when this aspect of me was used in a different manner.

I highly recommend doing this list and being able to be with your most shameful aspects. As I journaled I came to understand that those things that I had shame had power over me, and always opened a door for others to have power over me. That which I can accept and fully appreciate no longer can disempower me, my choices, or my expression in my relationships. Knowing that while there are always parts of me to strengthen and develop, there is nothing in me to fix. I am human, as we all are, and God loves me right where I am.

Today, I am grateful to have this home, my eyesight, my beautiful, this pen, this computer, the electricity to post all of this and share it with you, my friends and family.

Thank you for being on my journey, its always a wonderful experience to have any kind of relationship.
Congrats to me for day #2.

The Self is where the whole world starts. If you do not love your Self, your world becomes smaller.
