You know those days when all you can see are your limitations and weaknesses. Your tendency to procrastinate, distract yourself, and not follow through feel insurmountable. Your habit of not believing in yourself and doubting your path suck you dry of hope and leave you unable to move forward.
I know those days. Everyone knows those days.
When these days come, how can you move through it with grace? How can you not get pulled into the old stories and immobility?
Your mind says you don’t have what it takes. You’ll never change. You aren’t made of the right stuff to make your dreams a reality.
All you can see is what is wrong with you. And what is wrong with you seems much larger than what is amazing about you. You lose sight of your skills and talents. Your dreams feel unattainable.
You forget you CAN do this. You are enough.
You forget that you are already loved fully and completely by the Divine. You already measure up. You already passed the test.
You’re not your bad habits. You’re not your limitations. You’re not your addictions.
The Divine sees only your beauty and light.
Don’t give your limitations power. They are powerless before God. Strip them away one by one. See them for the illusions they are.
Let all ideas of being better or different fall away. It’s impossible to be more than you already are.
In the eyes of God, you are perfect. You are fully loved. You are fully forgiven every transgression. God is omniscient and knows what you will do before you do. There are no surprises.
The only one rejecting you is you.
Your spirit is limitless. Your spirit can’t be contained. Your potentiality is limitless. Let life be a miracle.
Believe that you can. Believe a way will be presented to you. Allow good to come to you and through you.
On those days, make peace with imperfection. Make peace with limitations. Make peace with your unforgiving mind.
Nothing is holding you back. You are a child of God.
“Forgiveness is the key to happiness.” A Course In Miracles, Lesson 121
“The unforgiving mind is torn with doubt, confused about itself and all it sees; afraid and angry; weak and blustering, afraid to go ahead, afraid to stay, afraid to waken or to go to sleep, afraid of every sound yet more afraid of stillness; terrified of darkness, yet more terrified at the approach of light.”
