Finding Your Inner Light

Finding Your Inner Light and Let Go of Self-LoathingOn a day that has suddenly turned bleak with the passing of a bright light, I am reminded of how important it is for us to love ourselves, to find our inner light.

Holly’s answer to my question “What is the Change You Want to See in the World” seems to be right on target – we need to “see our amazing, beautiful, inner light and let go of self-loathing.”

Many of us forget to see ourselves for the wondrous, beautiful beings we are. We forget we have done and/or are capable of amazing things.

Some of us (ok most of us) will loathe ourselves at one point or another. We are too fat, too thin, too ugly, too dumb, too young, too old, too broke, too useless. We don’t deserve love, or happiness, or that raise. We can’t stand ourselves. This is not right!

When we are unhappy with ourselves for one reason or another, we need to ask ourselves what we can do to change or accept our point of loathing. We need to remember the good things about ourselves; we need to remember our inner light.

The point is, whatever the problem, we can usually work to fix or overcome it. We can eat healthy to lose or gain weight. We can study to improve our skills. We can find or create a job where we can make more money.

And, most importantly, we all deserve love and happiness. Be open to love and by loving yourself first, you will find love.

I want to ask everyone reading this to ask yourself to name something special or unique about you. Reach deep inside and find your inner light.

Think about what you can do, what you have already done and what you will do. Today is the day to move forward to your future by taking the first step towards a goal or dream.

Love and value yourself and let your inner light shine.
