It’s ‘Why Not’ Wednesday and today’s no fail message is about standing in the sun. Goodness abounds when people around you are doing well. That is to say when good things happen in the lives of the people we care about we are instinctively aware of their happiness. We also become happy.
We’re so good at supporting our loved ones that we have enough faith –an overflow of faith actually– to believe nothing is impossible for them. We believe in them even when they doubt themselves. We may even say:
“There are so many educational options today, you can go back to school.”
“That is a great idea; you should start your business.”
“Hang in there, losing weight is never easy but it’s worth it.”
“I agree, you should ask for a raise – you deserve it.”
It truly is important to surround yourself with positive people.
Consider this for today: every now and again, we need to turn the mirror of veracity on ourselves and provide the same love and support that we offer to others to ourselves. The same shine we deem worthy for our loved ones is the same shine we should give ourselves.
It’s not bragging.
It’s not boasting.
But it is necessary.
The best love we can provide to anyone is a demonstration and commitment for the love we have for ourselves. Authentically doing…living…being our best self and showing ourselves grace and mercy begins the circle of gratitude that surrounds us all.
You deserve to shine.
Stand in the sun.
