“It doesn’t matter what occupation you have.
You need to find happiness in who you are more than what you do.”
How often do you feel limited by one thing or another?
You know—you don’t have enough money to go on your dream vacation. You don’t have the knowledge to fix your laptop or that #$%@ overflowing toilet. You really want to attend this seminar and that workshop, but they both are too far way. You can’t take the time off of work because you’ll just have more work when you get back, and you can barely handle your current workload. You’re irritated because your body doesn’t heal as quickly as it used to, and you wear baggy clothes to cover over your uber sexy luv handles.
You are too old, too young, too fat, too thin, too this, and too that.
You know the drill!
If your mind is like mine, and it comes up with any number of reasons for why you can’t do or have what you really want, you’ll love today’s self-compassion role model.
Nick Vujicic demonstrates that no matter what limitations you feel you have, you always have a choice—to be angry for what you don’t have or to be thankful for what you do have.
I think you’re going to be warmed by the words Nick shares. Enjoy!
Your Self-Compassion Challenge:
Today I want you to take a few minutes and get present with one of your perceived disadvantages. Choose a single limitation, then put your hand on your heart and allow yourself to feel the effects of this constraint.
You may notice any number of emotions arise—pain or shame or disappointment. Let your feelings be there, and grace yourself with the gift of inner safety by noticing and acknowledging these feelings exist.
After you spend a few minutes being 100% present with the suffering caused by you limitation, I want you to imagine yourself in your mind’s eye giving this limitation to God (or the Universe or your Higher Self). Then imagine your Higher Self taking this limitation and throwing it into a fire. As this limitation burns into the nothingness it came from, hear your Higher Self share the unseen advantage of this perceived limitation.
Allow Guidance to tell you his or her special message. Savor the words of wisdom you receive, and let the pure radiant light of Truth set you free from any hurt and pain caused by the past. You are now free of this limitation! Rejoice, my friend. You are free!
Alright, sending you lots of love on this beautiful limitless day.
