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.

Hear Me telling you I am delighted with you! Why do you question and second-guess your every thought and actions with such criticism? That is not how I see you. Your expectation bar may be set a little too high, not allowing room for error and Grace to fill in. Move that bar to a more reasonable, rational, and attainable level. Be kind to yourself in your head, especially as you start to recognize My overwhelmingly unconditional love for you. Bask in this truth, and push the critic far away today, for that voice has no place of belonging in you.

You are on the brink of falling into the old trap of beating yourself up inside your head. Today, choose life instead. Choose to love your flaws and imperfections, putting balance back into perspective as you see how much your Goodness outshines the rest. I love and behold you just as you are, with both sides included. Seeking perfection and expecting that of yourself is a misguided aim. Beloved, seek Me and My unconditional adoration of you as My creation. Certainly I want you to do your best, putting kindness, mindfulness, and intentionality behind all your actions, but I don’t want or expect perfection. Mistakes happen. Brush away the dark thoughts and find joy in the with-God life I intend for you.

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.

All is well as you travel with Me. Step by step we can walk hand-in-hand. You don’t have to worry about tracking the mileage or measuring your accomplishments. Only I know the impact your life and actions are having on My world. Continue to allow Me to work in and through you. Part of this process calls you to love yourself as I love you. Your constant worry or self-criticism is not helpful. If there is any attribute that requires refining, change, or forgiveness, I will enlighten you to that fact. Otherwise, proceed with abandon, allowing your true self to emerge. I love you just as you are: relatable, kind, and not flawless.

I wish you would stop being so critical of yourself. I created you just as you are so that your uniqueness reaches others. I do My best work in and through you when you stop judging yourself internally and follow your God-given instincts. Speak when you feel urged to; share when I nudge you; listen with ears that ear; notice and attend to others with eyes that see. You are good at all of this because of how I made you and because of your faith and trust in how I work within you. I will bless your encounters with others when you intentionally choose to trust your well-being.

You are My beautiful creation. I pride Myself for who you are and ‘how you turned out’. It pains me whenever you try to be something other than yourself, or when you berate yourself. I made you with an engaging personality. It’s not healthy to constantly second-guess your words and actions that come instinctively out of you. Don’t fear being yourself, or even being the center of attention at times. I set up opportunities for you to be there so that My light can shine brightly through you. I in you, you in Me. Your task is to learn to allow for this to be so and walk in this truth.

The pressures of life plus poor habits of negative self-talk have eroded the beautiful Light I placed in you. It’s time to address those habits and feed your mind My words instead: you are loved! Start from that basic, undeniable truth and work on softening all of the hard edges that have crusted over this core belief. My Light within you is not meant to be covered. Your innate ability to love and be loved is not meant to be stifled. Let’s scrape, sand, and strip off the corrosion so that when you hear My voice, firm and affirming, it resounds with hope and clarity. See how this change in perspective peels away stress, hurt feelings, and negative thoughts, simply by believing in yourself and in Me.

I designed you to be capable of many thoughts. Your head is often so full that it gets difficult to find Me in there, too, but I am there…whispering reassurance and providing moments of clarity. I give you suggestions and things to consider. Listen for My voice amidst the clammer, telling you that you are loved, wanted, appreciated, and MINE. I am never going to reject you. Never ever. Stop worrying about pleasing or impressing others. It is inherently part of your nature to attend to many people. In fact, this is so ingrained that you rarely notice the number of lives you impact in a day. Your walk with Me is true and pure in its intent, so you needn’t be so critical of yourself. I am well pleased with you. Start your day allowing yourself to fully receive this message.

You are good enough and likeable. You ARE. Stop with all the self-doubt. Yell at the ridiculing voice inside your head trying to make you question your likeability. Don’t succumb to believing the lies of the deceiver. Laugh at him, and scoff at his attempts to make you believe such polar opposites to My truth about you. The truth is, you are a loving and positive light in the world, and others are drawn to you because of how I live in your heart. Nothing can overpower the brightness in your soul so go live mightily and joyfully basking in the truth about you today.
