Celebrating Ourselves

How easy it is to give up our power. We talked about this in class last week. We are often afraid to ask for what we want so we become a doormat for others. We give away our time, money, energy, ideas, thinking that I’m not good enough to hold on to them. It is so important honor our own thinking and feelings. In A Woman’s Worth, Marianne Williamson says “A woman who cannot honor her own feelings will not find them honored by anyone else.”

It takes daily practice to accept ourselves. To not beat ourselves up. To celebrate our wins and achievements. To rejoice in our discoveries. It takes persistence and practice. And the rewards are abundant!
