Just As Lovely With Flaws

All of this striving for perfection is having a reverse effect on you. Unrealistic self-expectations make people more critical and less accommodating. I never ask for perfection from you. Instead, I suggest you come to Me as little children. What child do you know who has never made mistakes or gotten into messes? What child never weeps or gets mouthy or angry on occasion? And yet, their parent loves them. Let Me console you and encourage you, helping build you back up to recognize you are just as lovely with flaws than without any. Those “without flaws” are usually tightly wound, intimidating, and less approachable. Work on taking yourself a little more lightly, allowing truthful expression of emotions and a whole range of them. It’s what makes you alive. Live in the realm of My love without pretenses and a little more in love with yourself today.

Love is the Next Best Thing

Just love. My message to you today is as simple as that. Some use the phrase “do the next best thing”. I can assure you that if your motivation is to show love, it will definitely be the next best thing you can do. It’s important to toss some healthy self-love in the mix, too. Your whole life doesn’t have to be about serving others to the point of depleting yourself. Do what is needed to fill your bucket first, then go out refreshed and ready to live and love well.

Listen with an Intent to Understand

Be curious about all I have in store for you today. Instead of making judgements about those you encounter, listen with an intent to better understand and appreciate what they are sharing with you. Throw any hint of judgementalism to the wayside, including your own self-criticism inside your head. Allow yourself to be more at ease by accepting your own contribution as being worthy of attention and being enough for what is needed in the moment. All is well. You can trust that My hand is active in and all around your life.

Your Longing for Confidence

I know your longing for confidence and a sense of inner ease. I also see the frail moments where, in your head, you are susceptible to crumbling to pieces. It’s okay that this happens now and then. Be kind and forgiving to yourself when it does, showing gentle compassion and healthy self-care. I will mend every single piece of that brokenness. No crumb goes unnoticed by Me. Picture Me gazing lovingly at you as I reassuringly pick up piece after piece. I will wipe every tear away and breathe restoration into your deflated spirit. You are resilient and will come through it all well. Make this truth your focus to get you by today.

Don’t Beat Yourself Up

Be kind to yourself today. Actually, do that EVERY day. It will be easier to treat others kindly when you practice this on yourself. Don’t beat yourself up over everything you eat, say, and do. Rehashing everything in your head isn’t serving you well, either. The truth is, I love you unconditionally! I want you to enjoy your food, cut yourself some slack, and be more playful today.  Your kindness, like your compassion, will shine through. You are helping others in ways you may not even recognize.

Reflection of Me

Be your best reflection of Me today. I don’t ask that to pile on pressure to perform. Rather, to reflect Me means to show and share Light in any given situation. Be of good intention in your walk today. A smile and nod to the stranger; a kind word to a colleague; an utterance of self-compassion offered when mistakes happen. Recognize that I am both at your side as well as beaming from within when you do things such as this.

Focus on Self-Kindness

Today is a good day to hole-up and focus on self-kindness. Bundle up with Me, cozied in and staying protected from the elements. You can still focus on self-care while working or attending to home-life because you and I are One. I am with you wherever you go and in whatever you are doing. Take your time. Slowing down to an easier pace will serve you well on this day of attending to better self-care. I call you to stay in close awareness of our tight, comforting relationship. My love for you is real, and we can take delight in togetherness today.

Stop Using Guilt & Worry As Motivators

My love for you is not dispensed only by your good works or positive intentions. My love is totally free and ever-available. This is hard to wrap your head around because you are always trying so hard to “do what’s right” and be “good/kind/considerate enough”. Let Me tell you again that you are already “good enough” for Me and I love you completely as you are. Think about how knowing and trusting the truth of these words may change how you act and think today. Stop using guilt and worry as your motivators. Simply be compelled to be lovingly accepting of yourself and others, relaxing into this God-fueled mindset. As you learn to show compassion for yourself this will ease your distress.

Heal Hurtful Self-Talk

Lay those burdens aside. Come to Me in all your fragility, presenting those agonizing thoughts and experiences you keep re-hashing over and over again in your head. Allow Me to warm you from your core, like hands hovering near an open fire. Let the warmth of My reassuring love heal that hurtful self-talk, turning those lies to ashes. You are loved, purely and simply, just as you are. The past mistakes are already forgiven. There’s no benefit to clinging to them anymore.  Let the flame of My healing Spirit take over, renewing you for Good. It’s time to let that past go.

Trusting & Believing In Your Goodness

Oftentimes, you hide deep self-criticism, disappointment, and inaccurate accusations against yourself in your thoughts. Your sincere desire to encourage, connect with, and uplift others should also be applied to your self-talk. Your passionate heart for equity and inclusion is super evident and others are drawn to you by it. That is the truth…not all the other anxious messages which try to erode your Light. Letting Me lead the way, use your time of interaction to be the Light I’ve designed and set in you, and don’t forget to enjoy it bouncing back as My Spirit dances from person to person.
