What do you do with those things you wouldn’t consider your ‘best’. I like to call those the ‘ugly bits’. When I bring out my ugly bits there is usually an automatic rejection of them. So much so, I feel the need to apologize to the people around me for showing them. What do you think? Do you reject your ugly bits and apologize when they come out to play?
It’s so appropriate that today’s affirmation is on Mother’s Day. I’m remembering a situation when my ‘ugly bits’ showed up in a conversation with my mom. I lost it on her. We both ended up in tears and it didn’t feel good. And, what I love and appreciate about my mom is that I can have this kind of conversation and show her all sides of me, as she can with me. What I also love and appreciate about myself is that after that call I can have compassion and love for myself and know it’s OK to lose it when I need to. And that all of my emotions are good.
Today, I invite you to join me and affirm “I choose to love all of me” and really allow yourself to sit in that. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s out there! And for those of you whose mom’s have transitioned to the other side, I invite you to explore the idea that they are still with you and are there to support you when you need them. Talk to them and listen…you know what they are saying. Hugs to all of you!
