You are amazing!
I want you to take a moment and think about what you can do and what you have done. Make a mental list of the things that you have learned to do. Yes, you have done many incredible things. Do you know how to talk? How about walk? Maybe you speak multiple languages. Do you know that it takes over seventy-two muscles to speak, depending on the word, and over two-hundred-twenty to walk? You had to learn how to coordinate all of those muscles. There was a time when you didn’t know how. When I asked you to make a list, did you think to yourself, “I haven’t done anything special?” I bet you forgot about walking and talking didn’t you.
What about your hands? Look at them and all the things they can do. There was a time when you couldn’t control them either. There are people with diseases who have lost the control they once had. Be grateful for what your marvelous body can do. Look at it in wonder and experience it with new eyes of gratitude. It is a miraculous vehicle you have been given to experience this spectacular world. Spend sometime today thinking about how amazing you and your body are.
When you are given a compliment say, “Thank you.” Accept what the other person is saying as truth. Let it land. Let it stick to you. If you have a hard time with this, your personal value may be low. Ask yourself why you have decided to diminish yourself and your value to this world. You are valuable and you were placed here in this time in this place for a purpose. Stop playing small. Stop deflecting and pushing away your value.
I challenge you this week to give a complement and accept a complement with no comment back. Talk to your friends and coworkers to let them know what you are doing. That way they understand and support you in what you are trying to accomplish. You want the complement to land on them and stick. Let them know that when you give them a complement you don’t want one back. You want them to just say thank you. Let them know you will be doing the same. You might feel awkward at first. After a while you will feel a shift. You will have a deeper understanding and appreciation for what you are saying and what they have said to you. You will have a deeper connection with them and yourself.
In many ways, we have lost the humane part of our society. You are able to move through your day without interacting or associating with anyone. You can order just about everything online and have it delivered to your home. You can go for some time without speaking to a person and still get everything you need and want. If you do speak with another person, it tends to stay superficial. You become disconnected from your life and everyone in it.
I’m just asking you to reconnect to yourself and others around you. I’m asking you to remember how amazing you and everyone are. Spend sometime this week reconnecting to your incredibleness and raise your personal value. I bet by the end of the week you will feel better and have accomplished more than you thought possible.
Let me know how it goes for you I’m excited to hear about your experiences.
Go have a beautiful day,
