    “To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance” – Oscar Wilde

    I’m pretty lucky in that I seem to be constantly in the presence of some of the most inspiring, motivated, high achieving beings cruising this planet. They are curious, full of hope and love, and desiring to make an impact, make a difference, make a mark on this world in their own unique way. SO COOL!

    It’s absolutely amazing to realize the heart and soul being poured in to these high achieving aspirations and of course the discipline and focus needed to take ideas and contemplation through to 3rd dimensional reality. However, sometimes amongst this group (myself included) the theme of self-discipline and focus can cross over into self-criticism and turn quickly in to inner bully.

    The dangerous part is that because we (high-achieving, aspiring, world changers) have such high standards, and lofty goals for bettering ourselves and humanity, it’s easy to justify that little voice telling you to ‘work harder’, ‘stay up later’, ‘get up earlier’, ‘persevere’, ‘stay committed’, ‘don’t be lazy’ etc. But let me warn you – beware.

    Beware that you can quickly become your biggest enemy and worst critic as you ‘force’ yourself to ‘push through’ and ‘grind’ out all that needs to be done, only to have lost your most precious and sacred relationship along the way. The one you have with yourself.

    Work hard, yes. Stay committed, yes. Stay focussed, yes. BUT, stay in a gentle relationship with yourself. Know, on the deepest level that you are already amazing. TODAY, right now, you’re amazing. You’re amazing when you are lacking motivation. You are amazing when you lie in bed all day because you partied too hard last night. You are amazing when you don’t know the answer. You’re amazing when YOU need some help.

    It’s phenomenal to take responsibility for your life. To know and act in a way that allows you to be who you are and let your inner spirit shine out for the world to see. Just make sure that you don’t forget, you’re still a human, and to quote Bruno Mars:

    “You’re Amazing, Just the Way You Are”.

    Have a great week!

      Gosh, Heather! I loved this part. It’s so true, and we forget it all the time. Even I do.
      Sometimes we’re at a trough in our energy cycles, but that doesn’t mean that we’re not moving. We’re just amazing, because we’re still ourselves. We’re just expressing another aspect of ourselves.
      To expect us to be the same, and unchanging – would go against the naturally dynamic nature of the universe.
      And we wouldn’t wanna do that ;)

    2. Malavika – you’re so eloquent! I just feel this undeniable force to encourage people (and of course myself) to be gentle, to not judge, to be in partnership and support of ourselves. “A trough in our energy cycles” – what a beautiful way of putting it. Exactly! Being low energy after a night of dancing and singing and staying up late, and spreading cheer is just the ebb after what was a late night flow. Nothing to feel bad about, as an example. Thanks for your comment!! xo
