Treat Self and Others with Compassion

Take notice: I call to you subtly and softly when you slow your mind’s activity enough to be aware of My Presence. I am not just “near”, – I am within you, looking out through your eyes and surrounding you fully. There’s no need to spend so much time comparing, contrasting and rating yourself against others. This sadness Me, because all I ask is for you to love one another and yourself. Learn to recognize the built-in Goodness inherently pairing you and I. This will help you treat yourself and others with more compassion. I will protect you from harm when you encounter ridicule from others who don’t know or trust My Presence. Just continue the Good work I have started in you and spread the news of hope and love. Rejoice in the dawn of this day!

Recognizing Your Limitations

You do not know everything. It’s important that you begin to recognize this fact, and  lift some of those ridiculously harsh self-expectations off your shoulders. I am accompanying you daily, and I reveal all you need to know in a given moment. Recognizing your limitations and humbly admitting them is actually an asset. The less self-reliant you become, the more you can depend on Me and find My peace. You worry far too much about what others will think of you. When you try to be all-knowing, this actually pushes others farther away. Learn to embrace your shortcomings so that I can draw you closer to Me and to others.

Deserving of Love

The little things you do add up. If I were to sum up all that you have done for the world and for Me, it would be as high as a mountain, – yet you cannot see as I see. Trust Me, that even in the little things…every dish you wipe, every person you listen attentively to, every dog you pet and weed you pull and task you complete…it all brings about My Goodness. My beloved child, I mean it when I say, “In you I am well-pleased”. Be kind in your inner voice today. You are very deserving of love.

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.
