I have created a lot of drama and heartache throughout my life, both for myself and for others around me. And I’ve done that by struggling to value, appreciate and love myself. This wound goes far back into my childhood and is deeply rooted inside my psyche, my body and my heart. Very often in my life, I simply didn’t know what I actually truly wanted so it always seemed easier to go ahead with whatever someone else was proposing. But deep down, I was completely disconnected from myself. I was placing myself so low on my own list of priorities, that I never even knew that what I wanted actually mattered!

 

The role of authenticity

It took me a long time to learn to recognise my own authentic “yes” and my own authentic “no”. It took education, healing and transformation. It took a lot of digging and soul-searching. But in the end, I began to find, see and recognise the true ME. Under layers of social conditioning, repression and a “little good girl” upbringing, I finally began to notice the importance of living my life from a place of authenticity and of valuing my own opinions AT LEAST as highly as I valued others.

It takes a commitment

So today, as these thoughts keep prompting me to keep digging deeper and deeper for joy, happiness and self-love, I’m renewing my commitment and promise to myself and the world:
I COMMIT TO FALLING DEEPER AND DEEPER IN LOVE WITH ME.
I COMMIT TO ASKING FOR WHAT I TRULY WANT – BOTH FROM MYSELF AND FROM OTHERS.
I COMMIT TO CHECKING IN WITH MYSELF AND HONOURING MY JOY AND MY BLISS. A
ND I COMMIT TO FREELY SHOWING THE WORLD THE REAL, JUICY, JOYFUL, DELICIOUS ME.
