Embrace Yourself

"I will not hide my tastes or aversions. I will so trust that what is deep is holy, if we follow the truth, it will bring us out safe at last." Ralph Waldo Emerson

You are exactly what you should be.  Do you really believe that?  We didn't think so.   You humans are so hard on yourselves.  (smile)

Ask most people to list their flaws, the things they don't like about themselves, and they will fill a page or two in no time.  Ask them to make a similar list of things they like about themselves, or are proud of, and the result is likely to be hemming and hawing, searching their mind, truly struggling to come up with anything much to say for themselves. 

Isn't this sad?  You are so programmed to find what's wrong with yourself, your life, your world, that you forget to take a look at what's right or even okay.  And there is a lot of both.

And then there is the typical upbringing of children that frowns on speaking well of yourself as boasting, and praises "modesty" whether it be true or false, no difference.  Better to lie and belittle yourself than to honestly admit publicly to a skill or a talent or a positive attribute.  It's no wonder so many of you are neurotic!

We propose that you take a fresh look at who and what you are.  Take inventory, if you will, of your strong points and weaker points, your innate likes and dislikes, your quirks and idiosyncrasies.  Take a good look in you proverbial mirror, and open your arms, your mind, and your heart to yourself with love and total acceptance.

Whether you like to exercise or not, whether you hate broccoli or adore it, whether you have a faultless sense of direction, or get lost coming home from the supermarket, it's all good, because it's all youYou!  The unique and wonderful combination of attributes that makes you unlike anyone else on this planet, or anywhere else, for that matter.  You.

All of these things contribute to the remarkable being you are.  Cherish these things instead of bemoaning them or trying to sublimate or even drown them in the name of...self-improvement?  Conformity?  Fitting in with a "better" crowd?  Attracting a better mate?  Better for whom?

We fail to find a good reason sufficient to justify the attempted murder of your true and authentic self.  For, if and as you love yourself, others will be drawn to you and love you, too, just as you (really) are.

Even more than accepting yourself, we urge you to go further and embrace yourself, celebrate yourself.  God drafted a pattern and made you to a custom design.  Isn't that something to celebrate?

We think so. 

We love, honor, and bless the real you.
