Two weeks into my 365 Days of Gratitude. It is a thrilling experience for me, because I get to share my ideas, my beliefs, my experiences with you every day. What I am mostly grateful for today is the fact that I am allowing myself to be fully me, to express who I am and what I believe in, without the fear of being judged. But do not think that I have always been like that because I have not.
Living my life without being afraid of the judgment of others is relatively new. It did not happen over night and it is the result of many years of work within myself. It started to happen a few years back and it dissolved in layers, but I became acutely aware of this wonderful and life changing internal shift during the last couple of weeks. Writing every day, accepting the topics for my daily posts as they come and not censoring them at all, not being afraid of what you might think of me and knowing that you will probably disagree with some of my views brought to my awareness the fact that I am finally being me, fully me. This expands into a new sense of freedom for which I am truly grateful. Being me is not that bad after all. Actually it is wonderful!
Do you live fully as yourself or are you still monitoring your actions and behaviors through someone else’s beliefs and advice? I want you to start practicing life as you. In time, you will see who you truly are and you will fall in love with yourself: with your kindness, your humor, your wit; your compassion, your respect for others and for life, your grace.
Here’s to you! Wonderful, powerful, astonishing YOU!
Anite Moorjani‘s book “Dying to be Me” is such an inspiration and I recommend it wholeheartedly. Anita shares what she has learned through her experiences about illness, healing, fear and the true magnificence of each and every human being!
