I am cherished

 

 

When, as a kid, we did not get the things we needed most to grow into an emotionally healthy grown-up, we have to provide them for ourselves, now.

It is where I am at this moment. I am in the process of creating an inner sense of security, of abundance, and of strength. I am slowly learning that I am all that I need. Not just intellectually, but taking it in emotionally and physically. It is through reassuring my inner child, through giving what she needs most and through letting her explore the world at her pace.

I am perfect as I am. I am enough just as I am. I don’t need to do anything to earn my right to be here. I don’t need to act a certain way to be loved. I don’t need to justify my business. I don’t need to do anything to prove myself or my worth. I am worthy, because I am. It is that simple. I am enough. All by myself.

I am cherishing the potential that is growing within myself. From the outside, life seems to stand still, but I am no longer fooled by outside appearances. I am filling my cup to the point where it will start to overflow.
