Growing up in England, I was never taught much about self-love, and self-respect, other than, it was big-headed, stubborn, and wrong. My cousins were scolded for not sharing, and if I forgot to say please, and thank you, I was shamed, and told I was rude. Mostly by old, old, old, people from way back in the past, who held some sort of authority over me because of age, and family rankings.
My most recent anxiety spell caused me to review these limitations about myself, and I was given a new script, fresh from the tree. I have been tapping on it for a little over a week, and its title has inspired this blog post.
I will now gift you another blog post, and excerpt of my own I Will stories, based on the I Will Method by my friend Tammy. You can download the free PDF of the exercise I work from .
I will release those memories, and limitations. I will leave them in the past, and I will explore the notion of what it will be when I will love, and approve of myself.
When I love, and approve of myself, instead of beating myself up when I haven’t gotten this or that done, I will feel at ease with what I have done, and treat myself with compassion.
I will not mind as much that it takes me until midday to pluck up the courage to get out of bed when I have no plans. I will not feel forced by the need to comply with a time schedule that does not align with my body clock.
I will get out of bed because I will have given myself the gift of feeling happy in the now, and I will know what it feels like to throw caution to the wind, seize the day, and embrace life. I will get out out of bed, and my life will appear.
I will compare myself to none other than myself because I will be aware that happiness, and self-worth comes from within me, not outside of me.
What I did in my past will not matter, because what was, was. It will not matter that I fell, but that I got up and kept going. It will not matter where I am, who I am with, or what I will be doing. It will not matter how far I have come but that I arrived safely in the here and now.
It will not matter what other people think, or say to me, or about me because this is a reflection of how they see themselves.
I will have more things to be grateful for, and anything that I want that I don’t have, is a matter of applying the I will method.
I will not be jealous but I will be thankful for the contrast that expands my desire for more.
I will not rush, I will make the time to be who I will be, do what I will do, and have what I will have.
I will lovingly take care of the space, I occupy, and the people I interact with, because I live, and love the now, for my benefit, and for others.
I will lovingly script my future, and I will imagine good, and only good, from now on.
