“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.”
The most important decision of your life, the one that will affect every other decision you make, is the commitment to love and accepting yourself. It directly affects the quality of your relationships, your work, your free time, your faith, and your future.
Why, then, is this so difficult to do? We have to change our self-perception.
Feeling worthy requires you to see yourself with fresh eyes of self-awareness and love. Acceptance and love must come from within.
You don’t have to be different to be worthy. Your worth is in your true nature, the way you spread love and treat others. You are a beautiful light. You are love. We can bury our magnificence, but it’s impossible to destroy.
Loving ourselves isn’t a one time event. It’s an endless, ongoing process. It begins with you, enfolding yourself in your own affection and appreciation.
If everyone took a picture of themselves today and looked at it in 10 years I guarantee they would think “Wow I was so beautiful” or “Man, I was a good lookin’ dude.” So why wait 10 years? Why not love yourself and see your beauty now. Remember, all that matters is that YOU accept yourself and that YOU are happy at the end of the day with who YOU are.
