My favorite holiday – July 4th – is just weeks away, Bees.
It’s a time for celebrating. For standing up for your beliefs. For living your principles.
It’s a time for family and fireworks. Giving and loving. Gratitude and peace. Forgiveness and faith.
A time for miracles and memories.
All of that can start with you.
And while all of that can certainly start FROM you FOR others, I’d like to suggest that the most effective strategy might be for all of that to start FROM you FOR you.
For example – What if you allowed yourself the freedom to assume that you have a very good reason for every single thing you do and say?
Even if you’re not proud of what you did or said as you look back on it?
What if you believed that you were always and forever doing your very best to take care of yourself and the people around you?
Even when your efforts go awry or seem misplaced?
What if you understood that you have the power to figure out the good reason for your behavior and you knew that you could find a more useful way to care for your needs next time?
It’s an option to give yourself freedom to be as you are without judgement.
To allow space for understanding what you were afraid of or what was hurting that led you to act in a way you’d rather not repeat.
When you start giving yourself that space, that freedom, that grace, it becomes so much easier to extend that same to others and from there… relationships heal in a magical, freeing way.
The best news is: you can be in charge of getting that ball rolling.
Freedom is most truly in force when we celebrate it by giving the light of love, understanding and grace to those who need it most. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why not start with you?
