Greetings! We’ve got a bit of a stream of consciousness-type blog today.
Today let’s think about being comfortable with ourselves.
We don’t have to envy others. As we are is good enough. We can improve ourselves of course & we can strive to do better, but it’s good to be comfortable where we are.
Maybe we should not waste energy wishing we were somewhere else or, even, wishing we were somebody else. I’ve been there. Yeah!
We are as we are. Let’s speak to our selves with love, with every word speak to ourselves as if we’re speaking to a good friend. Then we can feel free to make progress, because we don’t have that painful sense of ego; of not being good enough attached to our goal.
Thus our journey forward towards our goals will be much easier to make.
Maybe it won’t make life less challenging but we certainly can handle the ups and downs better when we appreciate our selves and our egos are not on the line.
Here’s a little reading from “a dhammapada for contemplation”
“Those who are envious, stingy and manipulative remain unappealing despite good looks and eloquent speech.But those who have freed themselves from their faults and arrived at Wisdom are attractive indeed.”
We are worthy and good enough, as we are.
What do you think? Let’s share & help each other!
How do you keep balanced, amongst so-called competition and people who are a bit further along the journey than yourself?
You are great! 🦋
