Can you truly say at this moment that you accept yourself for everything that you are and embody? Very few of us would say ‘Yes’ because most of us have not come to an acceptance of who we are and what gifts we own. We always want to be better than or on par with someone else, don’t we?
While it is not wrong to strive to do your best and be your best, the trouble starts when we become obsessed with wanting to be like someone else be it a celebrity or someone else you admire (or perhaps, envy). The problem starts when you try too hard to copy another’s style and methods dismissing your own unique creativity. When you deny your gifts, demean yourself and glorify another to be better than you.
In the constant pursuit of wanting to be like someone else, we ignore, belittle and criticize ourselves one too many times. In our eyes, we are nothing. We have a list of dozen or more things about us that we don’t like or are unhappy with. From not having the perfect set of teeth, hair, complexion, to money, car, house, etc.
Listen, my friend! The grass will always seem greener, thicker, and lush on the other side. We will always look at what we cannot or don’t have and yearn for it as though it is the only thing that can truly complete us. Stop falling into this trap of thinking that everything that you want and everything that can truly fulfill you is out there being owned and flaunted by someone else. Have you ever wondered that someone could be envying you for what you possess? That someone could be wanting to be where you are? Start owning yourself for who you are. Respect, love, adore and admire yourself for the beautiful being that you are. Take time to reflect upon and embrace the skills, gifts, and blessings that you possess right now. You may start focusing on the flaws first but you do possess some gifts as well which you must consciously start bringing into your awareness. No one can be YOU and also, YOU can’t be another.
This card comes bearing the wisdom to live in perfect acceptance, today. Accept life for what it is right now and for who you are instead of struggling, fighting and lamenting over what you don’t have. You will be amazed at what you discover on this journey of self-realization and self-acceptance. Soon n it will dawn upon you that you don’t need heroes or inspiration outside of yourself. You are already one and that anybody else outside of yourself can only inspire you to do and become your best. But you don’t have to be them, look like them, or possess what they have to be truly happy, fulfilled and be successful.
