From Louise Hay’s Facebook post recently,
“I deserve splendid experiences. All people deserve happy, fulfilling lives. Like most people, I used to believe that I deserved only a little bit of good. Few people believe they deserve ALL
GOOD. Do not limit your good. Most of us have been conditioned to believe that the good in life can only be had if you eat your spinach, clean your room, comb your hair, shine your shoes, don’t make noise, and so on. Although these may be important things to learn, they have nothing to do with inner self-worth. We need to know that we’re already good enough, and that without changing anything at all, we deserve a wonderful life. I open my arms wide and declare with love that I deserve and accept ALL good.”
Boy did this hit home! Not only with how I’m feeling but what I’m expecting from others. The more crazy and unpredictable my life, the more I want to control. Feeling the need of suffer through….
This post reminds me that I can choose to “not suffer”. I can reach for the good and feel good! So I haven’t washed dishes since Sunday. So what that I haven’t vacuumed since Christmas – I know – gross! But, in not doing house cleaning perfectly (or at all) I have had time to enjoy my job and work longer hours. I’m not trying to do it all.
I recognized that I am setting these boundaries on others. Limiting how they choose to spend their time. Whether it’s my kids gaming or my boyfriend working, I am trying to control their choices to fit my wants and needs. I am going to let that go today.
Thanks Louise Hay for another life affirmation! I am not going to limit my or my family’s good. It’s ALL GOOD!!
