There’s potential in every individual. Every idea has the possibility to succeed in its time and place. We only don’t always see that, often blinded by fear, doubts and insecurities. Unhelpful things that are holding us back to live life to the fullest. Then life becomes a heavy struggle and we find ourselves crawling through time to get somewhere. When we finally arrive at a place, we feel so exhausted and unable to enjoy the present moment.
Therefore it’s good to look in the mirror once in a while and see who we really are in essence. That’s challenging and a very courageous thing to do. Being vulnerable and open up to the parts of ourselves that we rather would not see. Or want to hide. Our shadows, our darkest places within. Questions will come up. Self criticism to the fullest. Am I a good person?
Look again. Dive into yourself and see that deep essence of love and care that is inside of you, no matter what. This is where compassion resides. There where everything ok is the way it is. The place from where self love arises.
When there’s love for the self, there’s love for others and when there’s love for others, there’s love for the self. We’re all fighting the same battle, pulling ourselves up through the journey of life and trying to find our way back home.
Connection is the key to deep fulfilment and giving gives so much back in return. Now look again in the mirror and see the beauty of others through your eyes, reflecting love for all that’s dear to you.
Notice the difference in how you see yourself now in the mirror. Can you see the sparks? Of the greatness that you are, with an infinite potential to live life to the fullest? Take the leap of faith and jump. Feel you can fly. The wings of love are carrying you. Into the unknown. Into the beauty of you.
Let’s make a journey into your world.
