“True change can only occur if I am rooted in self-acceptance. To have self acceptance is a gift. It’s not giving up.”
These words resonated deeply with me this morning in the Taming the Inner Critic meditation. I am becoming aware of some very deeply buried anger, fear and grief that has been bubbling up the last couple months. I have been growing resentful that my life isn’t what I think it should be and then I get even angrier that I seem stuck and can’t make the changes I want to make.
I’m starting to see that I am stuck because I refuse to accept myself for where I am at - accept that this is my life and there’s no going back to course correct.
BUT... If I accept myself and where I am at that doesn’t mean I’m giving in and letting go of my dreams but just allowing them to evolve and take on a new form.
Today I am going to practice releasing my old ideas and accepting where I am and who I am.
