If I were a hot little genie and I gave you 3 wishes, what would they be?
Would it be to gain tons and tons of money?
Would it be to lose weight and keep it off? Or would it be to finally meet your soul mate?
So often we wish for things. I wish for this to happen. I wish for that to happen. We want to escape our lives and/or only experience the things that are pleasurable to us. Many of us are lonely and we don’t want to appreciate life until it resembles the life we have in our minds. We have an idea of self that is really and truly holding us back. Reason being, because until the idea of self that we have in mind resembles that in the physical world, we aren’t really truly happy. When really, you must first learn to be happy to get to the self you have in mind. It is good to have goals in mind, but celebrate and cherish where you are first. You want to lose weight and keep it off? Celebrate that thick waist line lol. You want to make more money? Be grateful that you have $3 and the dollar menu. You want to meet a good mate? Be at peace with yourself, your life experiences and your life circumstances.
Its called “Playing the cards you are dealt.”
Celebrate your uniqueness and revel in the idea that there is no one else on the planet like you.
True acceptance is a difficult thing because we try so hard to be someone else. We look at our gifts and talents as though they are inferior are aren’t as great as someone else’s. We look at others outward appearances as better than ours simply because we have confined to their standard of beauty. But take yourself out of that equation. Look at your life as unique. Your looks, your gifts and talents and your experiences are for you and you only. You are put here to shine no matter your circumstances. You cannot continue to look at others and their lifestyles as better than yours because of societal emphasis on things that are seemingly better. Your life is great. Our life is great. Be you. Be who you are.
