The thoughts that we think and the things we tell ourselves repeatedly throughout each day have perhaps more potential than anything else to fashion our very lives, right down to the current moment. It’s imperative that we bear witness to the emotional nature of the thoughts that run through our mind and the things we say to ourselves, because they have long term ramifications. It’s entirely up to us whether those ramifications are harmful or helpful to our mental and emotional wellbeing. Despite your DNA, no matter who your parents are, how you were raised, and regardless of the possibly damaging things that have been said to you, as well as those you’ve said to yourself; the following remains true: you were created in love, by love, and with love. Though you may not currently feel this way, you are nothing less than whole. The spirit is indestructible. It’s our human frailty that isn’t. Don’t let that confuse you. You can feel weak and broken without actually being weak and broken. It’s all a matter of perception. You are whole. You are worthy. You are loved. Always. Nothing that transpires in this world can or will change that. We simply forget and lose sight of that for a while. Let this be your reminder.
