There is a very difficult balance that we must strike with ourselves. On the one hand, it is important that we affirm and accept ourselves just as we are in this present moment. So many times, we are our own worst critics, and the inner voice that we hear can be harsh and discouraging. It is only in recognizing and appreciating our own giftedness and unique abilities that we can share our gifts with the world.

On the other hand, it is important to constantly strive to be better today than we were yesterday. To acknowledge that no matter where we are on life’s journey there is always an opportunity to grow into a more actualized version of ourselves. It is when we are able to strike that balance and own both our gifts and our imperfections that we become most fully human.

Have a great week, everyone!
