Grounding Yourself In Your Own Loveliness

Sometimes we can get distracted by the obstacles of life. This makes sense. We are human. Life's struggles can feel uncomfortable. Life's struggles can cause us pain.

Pain invites us to love more fully. Pain can open our hearts and deepen our capacity for love and compassion.

We can also feel emotionally triggered by pain. We may feel ashamed or inadequate for experiencing pain. This is where we must tread gently and be mindful of self judgement.

Judgment is sneaky. It may just sneak quietly into our mind as a belief that we should be able to "handle" it better. This tendency to judge ourselves can be harmful, as it can lead to feelings of self-criticism, shame, and isolation.

Experiencing pain is a natural and human part of our life experience, and there is no shame in that. By learning to approach our pain with compassion and self-care, we can heal and grow from our experiences. This process can also help us to develop greater empathy for ourselves and those around us.

This blog inspired by quotes by Gregory Boyle from his book, Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion

"Sometimes resilience arrives in the moment you discover your own unshakeable goodness."

"Resilience is born by grounding yourself in your own loveliness, hitting notes you thought were way out of your range."
