My partner played the song the other day and I started to pay attention to the lyrics. It really lifted up my Spirit!
We search for love and validation in relationships; we search for acknowledgement in a career; we search for security when we are purchasing our home. All of that leads to one thing.
We are searching for these things to make us and our loved ones happy. That is the ultimate goal.
The truth is we will never be happpy if we search for love, validation and joy outside of our ourselves. We have to search within. Examples: If you want peace in your Life, you need to have peace about you. If you want people to love you, you need to love yourself first as you are.
When we learn to love and accept ourselves, as we are, with all our imperfections, we begin to shine. We remember the whole person that we were when we were born. Why is it that babies are so adorable? Because they now, they are perfect, beautiful and loveable. As we grow up we build layers of fear through our experiences and forget that we are whole, complete and enough as we are.
Know your strengths and uniqueness. “What do you love about yourself?” “What else?” “What else?”
Each day with your friends talk about what you love about yourselves or write them down. The harder you find it to say what you love about yourself, the more you need to practise it to build your confidence and to shine. If you are struggling, ask good friends to tell you what they love about yourself.
Do what you love. “What do you love?” “What else?” “What else?”
When you talk about what you love and when you actually do those activities, i.e. singing, walking in nature, making others smile, going to an art gallery etc. you begin to shine. You will then attract people with positive energy. What all give out energy. What you give out, you get back. How do people respond when you enter your workplace? Do they love you presence or you constantly give out bad vibes. Most people want to be around people who are happy rather than the ones who keep complaining and constantly negative.
If you want to be happy, you’ve got to do the things you love as often as you can. Your heart will open, you will feel good and you will have big the biggest smile on your face. Who can miss that? People will be drawn to you.
Know what you love about yourself. Know your strengths and uniqueness. This will make you shine even brighter.
