It’s like a math problem. I remember being terrible at math, it was never a subject that came naturally to me. So I constantly needed to work hard at unmasking the correct theory in order to solve the problem.
If you are like me, then you know what I mean when I say that a shift happens when you finally get it. It’s kind of like we put a new pair of glasses on, and the solution just pops up. All of a sudden it’s clear and we understand how to find the answer.
This principle is also present in our everyday lives. At first, the problem seems to be unsolvable; we believe to have tried every possible angle but never get the correct outcome. Until one day it becomes clear. This might be due to a conversation with a friend that shifted something in our minds, or a video that resonated with our hearts. However this new found perception came to us, it helped.
I soon realized how often I was searching like a mad woman when an issue needed to be fixed. I kept going in circles hoping to make sense of something when the solution was simple all along. At times the best thing for us, after doing some homework, is just to let it all go. Let the answer arise while we stop to smell the fresh wild flowers.
For me that problem had been self-judgement for years. Nothing I did was ever good enough; I wasn’t good enough. I buried my self-worth deep underground and was searching for someone to help dig me back out. But little did I realize I had the shovel all along. The tool I desperately needed was in front of me, but I couldn’t see it. Until one day I decided to let go of all the bullshit, and be my own hero!
I had thrown piles of dirt on myself, including others, for far too many years and I was ready for a change. I finally understood how to love myself and why it’s so important to do so. Perhaps, subconsciously I was tired of feeling worthless, or maybe I read something somewhere, and it stayed in my self-conscious mind until I was ready.
Either way, I realized that I was in control of my emotions and self-worth. No one else could do a better job at it than me! It was simple once I grasped this concept. I had my new pair of glasses, and all I could see was self-love. I then made a promise to myself, that I would keep putting them on every day. ❤
