Some mornings it’s about cancelling out the negative thoughts. Today it’s the fear of being judged badly because of how I look. I keep hiding from people because I’m afraid I’d see it in their eyes what I see in the mirror every day: fat, ugly, worthless. Our world is all about the looks. Even musicians are all about the looks & that’s really sad. But l know my soul is perfect & beautiful so I’m gonna focus on that instead of my fears & insecurities.
I’m a shining star when I’m connected to my soul.
I’ve all the love I need from the universe.
I’m strong & beautiful.
I don’t want to miss letters even if I’m not doing them on time or as a separate post so here’s a combination of the missing N, O and Q.
Note to self
Be kind to yourself today. Look into the mirror and see the most beautiful thing.
Open yourself to opportunities
It’s not up to me what happens around me. But it is up to me what happens within.
Quit being so harsh to yourself
And believe it:
How can you be kind to yourself today?
In pretty much every situation there are at least two roads one can take: that of kindness and the other one. Call it negligence, rudeness, hatred even, it’s the one where the other person doesn’t matter.
One of my friends recently told me that she found it satisfying that going to the shop, the cashier thought the lemon my friend was buying was a lime. There was about 25p difference between the two so my friend let her made that mistake.
It’s not a significant thing in the big picture, is it?
No, it’s not. But still, it wasn’t the right thing to do. My friend didn’t pay for that lemon. Maybe the supermarket paid for it, maybe the cashier had to. We’ll never know. But wouldn’t it have been kinder to let the cashier know she’d made a mistake and let her correct it? It’s not about the amount of money involved: it’s about the general direction of that action.
There’s always a point in time when consciously or subconsciously we make that decision at the crossroad: is it gonna be the ego or the universal good?
Being unkind never “just happens”. There always are other options. We might not wanna consider them but they’re always there. No excuse. It’s our decision. Every single time.
It was a while back that I stumbled upon this blog whose author had a love-project for a year. I don’t remember her name or the circumstances but she wrote about this thing she did or heard about titled “You’re beautiful”.
