This is the time of the year that we tend to reflect on our lives. We look back on the year and critique our performance.
This year I invite you to look at yourself in a different way.
What if this year we look at what we let define us.
Things in our outer world that we let define us can often change. We might lose our job, our car gets older and less shiny, our house needs repairs, loved ones get sick, our children make decisions and live in a way that we don’t necessarily approve of. And what about my people pleasers, did you do enough for others to find value in yourself?
When we have a deep understanding of who we are, our outer world has less power over us.
When we know who we are, we don’t let others or circumstances in our lives define us.
When we know who we are, we don’t take things personally.
When we know who we are, we navigate through life with an unwavering sense of what is important to us.
What if getting to know ourselves deeply would give us more peace? I’m talking about knowing ourselves beyond the things we’ve done and mistakes we think we made. I mean all the way down to our true essence, our Divine Spark.
Because someone doesn’t love you doesn’t make you unlovable.
Because someone doesn’t respect you doesn’t mean you don’t deserve respect.
Because someone tells you that your voice is ugly doesn’t mean you can’t sing.
Because someone doesn’t value you doesn’t change your self-worth.
Because someone has their truth about you, it doesn’t have to be your truth.
We must know ourselves deeply so that we don’t let anyone else or circumstances in our lives define us.

I say remember because when we were children, we knew who we were. Life taught us to pay attention to everything and everyone else, so we forgot.
Let’s remember and live our lives fiercely!
Sending so much love this holiday season!
When we change the world changes.
