Be True To Yourself

“You can still make today the day you change yourself, love yourself, forgive yourself, respect yourself, honor yourself, cherish yourself, admire yourself, express yourself, be true to yourself… It’s never too late!” ~Steve Maraboli …

Today is a new day–a day filled with such great potential to find your authentic self. All that is required of you is a simple choice.

Change yourself–we do not have to be the person we were yesterday, rather, we are encouraged to learn, grow, and change into the person we are meant to become each day of our lives. Love yourself–you are a lovable soul beautifully handcrafted by a God who loves you. Forgive yourself–we all make mistakes… and those mistakes do not have to define us. Respect yourself–you are a holy vessel, a body carrying a sacred and eternal soul. Honor yourself–for your conduct will define who you are to others as well as yourself. Cherish yourself–there is only one of you in the entirety of all creation. Admire yourself–you possess great beauty and talent. Express yourself–you hold the ability to make a positive difference in this world. Be true to yourself–for you deserve happiness and joy.

How often do we take the time in our lives to truly appreciate and cherish the wondrous marvels that we are? Definitely not enough. Do so today.

Let someone know how wonderful a person they are.

Questions to consider:

What are some things you appreciate and cherish about yourself?

How does our appreciation of something affect how we view it?

Why do we tend to appreciate the gifts of others more than we do our own?

For further thought:

“You are special. You are a beautiful soul… amazing in your own way. It may be your eyes, your smile, your laugh, your inner glow. Every one of us has a quality that someone else admires.” ~Unknown
