Learning unconditional love and acceptance
If you have read my blog during the past year, you know the challenges I have personally faced with loving and accepting myself unconditionally. It kept me 200+ pounds overweight and from achieving my biggest dreams. It was my shield – my protection – from a sometimes critical and cruel outer world. Or, so I thought.
With the loss of the weight, I have developed a new love and acceptance of myself. A true sense of worthiness. And a whole new way of wholeheartedly living for which I am forever grateful. I have blogged about it here quite extensively of late. (The daily practice of gratitude, My word is enough, and One brave thing.)
Today, I came across this awesome new blog post on Positively Positive by Kris Carr titled, The Power of Unconditional Acceptance.
Here’s my favorite line from the blog: “The more I accept who I truly am, the more I shine like a diamond. This is true for you too.“
I wanted to share the blog here in full as I found it powerful and inspiring. I’ve been coaching people in mid transformation in developing the practice of affirmation and positive intention. Honestly, I used to think it was “self-help crap.” Until it worked for me. I mean really, truly worked. And it is working to this day and part of my daily practice of healthy living.
This blog is fitting and relevant to that work, and in particular this week. I post it for my very special 100% peeps (you know who you are). Give it a try, and let me know what you think. 🙂
