Being positive is important yes, but as I move away from living life in my mind, I am learning not to judge anything as good or bad. I try to accept and love all of what life gifts me.
It is one thing to say you love yourself by focusing on your positive aspects. That’s easy. But can you say you love yourself by focusing on your flaws?
I have wrinkles. I have scars, stretch marks, saggy skin, crooked teeth, a prominent nose, flabby thighs, cellulite… As I age, a ton of things will ache, change and become unbecoming to society. That stuff is really pretty darn silly considering I know my soul. She is something so beautiful and separate from this earthly body.
So I take a look at my past—lies I have told, people I have hurt, “sins” “Controligion” told me I committed. This body came with behaviors, reflexes and triggers that I have had to learn to balance. I am still learning. Again I laugh because how silly it is to label myself unloving based on things this human had/has to face. I feel great compassion for my being. This is it. This is the woman I chose to be. The most loving thing I can do is love her completely.
I choose to take me and my odd, flawed, sometimes behaving badly body into the future with love from this point forward. I hope by reading this you choose the same. Being 100% Juls is the key to self-loving and drawing authentic love to me.
By being honest to my core with who I am, who I’ve been, what I think, and most importantly what I’m feeling, I’ve learned the only judge that matters is the one inside my being. I no longer care to live from my mind that works all day judging situations. I live from the heart to love my complete existence.
The easiest way to extinguish the judge is to replace it with your very own sweet, sweet love. Love yourself entirely baby. Tons of people love perfection. But, it’s an uncommon soul that can love the flaws. It is the rarest, most powerful love of all. ~ Juls ❤
