My Hopes For You

I hope you realize that self-acceptance is the key to happiness. Our ability to be kind and compassionate towards ourselves requires us to know and accept who we are, as we are.

I hope you learn to stop being so hard on yourself and instead find forgiveness for your perceived shortcomings. When we stop tearing ourselves down, we can be better equipped to build ourselves up.

I hope you stop trying to control reality and make peace with what is. When you fight reality you will always lose. Allow what is to be.

I hope you can focus on your haves, rather than have nots. You are enough, you have enough, you do enough – let enough, be enough.

I hope you can learn to find admiration and inspiration in others, rather than waste your time on comparison and jealousy. There is no one else in the world like you. This is your journey and your life, write your own amazing story.

I hope you can learn to find gratitude, even in the small things. There is abundance in gratitude and always more to be found when we are grateful.

I hope you can sit with your emotions rather than hide from them. What we cannot be with can run our lives if we let it.

I hope you find what you love and pursue it with your whole heart. Loving what we do, who we are with, and who we are is what makes this all worthwhile.
