~~We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiousity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.~~ ee cummings
Do you believe in yourself? You should. Do you think you are worth listening to? You are. Are you valuable? I can promise you....absolutely!!
We all have those skeletons we don't want others to see. We all have those "oops" moments we wish never happened. We often even hide not just from others but from ourselves.
And then we fall back on our addiction to.....'cope'.....to 'de-stress'......to 'regain our balance'. Of course we KNOW smoking doesn't do any of that....but better the comfort of what we know than the looming darkness of the unknown. Right?
How silly. You, my friend, are so much more than an addict waiting to relapse!! You are a gift to this world. And this world is waiting for you to become who you truly are. You just need to believe in yourself. Because then you have to know you matter! You have to know that you are valuable! You will feel that lightness that comes with releasing yourself from the burdens of all that guilt you carry......that shame....those feelings that you are nothing.
Believe in yourself. Listen to your inner voice and allow your spirit to light your path. Know that there is wonder in the world just waiting for you......adventure, laughter, and life. You just have to believe :)
Have a lovely week-end!! Sheri
