Perhaps we lack the power to solve the great challenges facing the world but we do possess the power to extend more loving kindness into the world beginning with ourselves. How willing are we in the coming year to be more compassionate and accepting of ourselves? What would change for us if we were willing to extend the same degree of loving kindness to ourselves as we are towards those we value and appreciate? How much more effective might we become if we filled our life with loving kindness to the point where it overflowed into the lives of everyone we touch?
My prayer for you is that the coming year brings you to a greater appreciation of your loving nature and the compassion and willingness to recognize that perfection is not a prerequisite for receiving and extending love. All that is required is a daily intention to be one degree more loving, more compassionate, more accepting of yourself and by extension everyone else.
May the year ahead bring you a greater understanding and respect for the wonder that you are capable of becoming if you are willing to accept that God doesn’t make junk, your life is not a failure and the story you came out of the universe to write on the hearts and minds of everyone you touch is not yet complete.
