The title of this article is a little misleading, so bear with me and read on. Of course, you should always love yourself just the way you are because after all, you are perfect. But when it comes to our desire to make change in our lives (particularly weight loss) it’s important to know that there’s more to the situation than self-acceptance. Let me explain…..
As I said, loving ourselves just the way we are is important. Actually, it’s everything, but when we decide to make change for our health, or for any other reason, we need to change the way we think. If we say we love ourselves just the way we are but want to make a change, we intuitively feel the opposition of those two statements. How can you love yourself just the way you are but still feel the need to ‘improve’? Those are positive and negative thoughts and they tend to cancel each other out and we get nowhere. So, what’s a gal to do if she’s got this dichotomy going on in her head?
The answer is you need to change the way you think about change. You aren’t necessarily trying to change your weight because you feel it’s wrong or unhealthy. You aren’t desiring change because you aren’t already good enough. You desire change because there’s an infinite amount of creation that’s possible with that mind of yours and a new goal is simply your desire to create something new. Not because the old thing was bad, worn out or wrong, but because the nature of the human consciousness is to create, grow, change. I’m not making change because I’m wrong or broken, I’m always enough. I’m perfect today, but I also know I have infinite capacity to be a different kind of perfect tomorrow.
We don’t reach for new goals, search for spiritual growth, or make changes because we think we need to be better, we make change because we can, because our consciousness needs to create and we intuitively know that its creative capacity is unlimited. Why do you think everyone always wants more? Why do you think people reach for higher and higher goals? It’s not necessarily because they don’t have enough, it’s because we know that there’s more out there, always more to be created. At our soul core, we are all artists, constantly creating.
