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’veย  been coaching people in mid transformation in developing the practice of affirmation and positive intention. Honestly, I used to think it was “self-helpย  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. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Good morning, Lori! Thank you for sharing that blog–spoke a lot to me as well. I especially love this part from your post: “Honestly, I used to think it was โ€œself-help crap.โ€ Until it worked for me. I mean really trully worked. And it is working to this day and part of my daily practice.” I completely relate to this–now that I’m practicing daily gratitude and reframing negative thoughts into positive affirmations, I feel so much more energized and feel like I can tackle some of the “gremlins”. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks for the comment and share Julie. I love being on this journey with you and sharing our forward movement and progress, as well as the stumbles. It is an amazing ride and very individualized on the one hand, yet I believe would not be possible without those we meet and walk with along the way. I am blessed and grateful to walk along side you and share our transformation journeys as well as a new friendship. ๐Ÿ™‚
