I don’t necessarily believe in new year’s resolutions, but I do believe in taking stock and setting intentions.
And as counter-intuitive as it may seem, working towards radical acceptance of ourselves and our flaws makes it easier to grow and change.
Although I am in the business of helping people heal and grow, we usually start with acceptance of their flawed present, the ways they are wounded and the ways that they mistake. When you can learn to see the beauty of your flawed self, then you are free.
You are beautiful and valuable, even if your body does not yet align with your identity. You are beautiful and valuable, even if you don’t yet have the strength to leave an unhealthy relationship. You are beautiful and valuable, even if you were told otherwise growing up.
You are beautiful and valuable.
