Sometimes we find that our leg is caught in a trap. We hear that inner critic mouthing off, our heart closed and heavy, that voice of “if only” running like a broken record. In this meditation, we repeat affirmations designed to remind us of our humanity. Sitting in an upright position, I began to repeat these affirmations. As I did, I noticed my mind scanning for things that I found to be unacceptable to me. Certain behaviors, ways of thinking ran through my mind. On this growth path, I forgive myself. After all, I was doing the best I could with the tools I had been given. Now is the time to turn the page. To begin anew. And so it is. Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
