Two weeks ago, I wrote about how important it is to love yourself unconditionally. This week, the topic is about accepting yourself as you are fully, because how can you love yourself if you disapprove anything about you?
The main reason I was inspired to write about Self-Acceptance comes from my personal experience a few days ago. I was getting my kids ready for school, Viktoria 7 years old and Marko 4. Well, their birthday is coming up in June. Anyways, I usually allow enough time for them to wake up slowly, brush their teeth, eat breakfast etc. That morning they took more time to play too. I was preparing their lunches in the kitchen, and when the time to be ready came, Marko did not want to listen, and he did not allow me to help either. I tried to explain that we were going to be late if we did not hurry. It did not work; I lost my temper and yelled at him.
Even though, that was not the first time (probably last either) I was inpatient with my children, and I know that there is no perfect mother out there, I could not forgive myself; my heart was breaking all day. You call yourself a life coach? You cannot handle your 4-year-old son! My inner critic went on…
Here is why I am sharing this…
I could not accept what I had done, even though I knew how it came about- I was not caring about the way I felt the day or two before. I allowed other things that were going on around picking up momentum and affecting my energy.
As I am becoming more deliberate about the way I want to feel and what I want to create next in my life, my tolerance for not feeling good is less and less. Had I done the vibrational work that day (meditation, appreciation etc.), I could have prevented the situation from happening; I would have put my self in a very different vibration.
Knowing about the laws of the Universe and how the Law of Attraction always is matching us with the circumstances that are vibrationally compatible with our own energy, I can see clearly how I created it. However, the good thing is that when you know what you do not want, you become clearer on what you do want. I am clear now that I need to work on accepting myself fully, and be more deliberate about my parenting.
Even as a deliberate creator, unwanted things will happen, but what you choose to do about them is what makes the difference. I choose to accept the whole of me and love myself anyway. I choose to align with my newfound desire, which it is to be a better person and parent than I was yesterday.
Is accepting yourself fully something that you struggle with too? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
