Hurray for Friday! Thanks for being here!
Today I would love to help you become aware of something that we both do, and I don't want you to judge yourself for doing this, because I do it too.
Let's just be honest with ourselves and stay open to changing our usual way of doing things.
How often do you look in the mirror and judge your body?
How often do you observe the interesting choices that other people are making and judge them for those choices?
How often do you judge your own choices?
How often do you look at what you've created in your life and judge your creations as not good enough?
From the moment of our birth, we are taught to judge everything around us (as if our judgment will make things better).
Has judging your body made it any more beautiful?
Has judging someone else helped them to behave better?
Probably not, because it hasn't worked in my life.
Judgment has a way of killing the love, joy, and appreciation that is possible in every situation.
It cuts you off from the most loving version of yourself and makes you feel separate from yourself and from others.
We are all one and we are pure love, but judgment blinds us from our own loving nature.
Our sweet bodies have done so much for us and have gone on so many incredible adventures with us.
Would you be willing to exchange your judgment of your body for appreciation?
How many things can you find to appreciate about what your body can do?
The people in our lives with their interesting choices help us to clarify the kinds of choices that we want to make in our own lives.
Will you choose to simply view their choices as "interesting" and to be thankful for how these people have contributed to your life?
I truly believe that every person is making the best possible choices that they can make in any given situation based on the beliefs that they hold in that moment.
You have made the best possible choices that you possibly could.
Can you stop beating yourself up for things that you chose in the past and choose to appreciate that every single choice brought you to where you are today in this space with me?
The things that you have created in your life so far have given you clarity on what you would like to create in the future.
Can you stop judging your creations as not being good enough and appreciate the beauty and abundance that you have created in your life so far?
In my attempts to create an extraordinary life for me and my family, I can be really hard on myself for not achieving more and for not allowing more abundance into my life.
The judgments keep me from everything that I am wanting.
Appreciating all of the love, joy, abundance, and beauty in my life right now opens the faucet for more good things to start pouring into my life.
Would you be willing to join me in exchanging your judgments for appreciation?
Are you willing to view things, people, and choices as "interesting" and then to shift your attention to what you love about them?
I am definitely ready to start appreciating and loving the heck out of myself, my body, the people in my life, and my creations.
Appreciation makes space for so many new possibilities.
Are you ready to give up the judgment?
I hope you find so many things to appreciate this weekend, and I look forward to our time together on Monday!
