“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection” Gautama Buddha When you have met the power who can offer you any three gifts you ask for, then the second gift you might consider requesting is the gift of self acceptance.

You are more deserving of love than you may know. The language of the mind can be harsh and critical at times. It seems that when you are stuck the voice gets louder.

You have grown up with you, so you have an opinion about who you are, what you are capable of and how loveable you are.

Self acceptance allows for not knowing, not understanding and not being the expert in all your affairs. There are times in your life when asking for help is more a sign of self acceptance than weakness. Yet we are taught differently.

You have met the one who can offer you self acceptance. It is you and your heart.

Open the gift available to you from your heart and let the river of self acceptance flow through you.

Just love yourself for who you know you are in this moment. That’s all there is. Give yourself a hug.

This is who you are.
