Learning to love and accept the parts of me that I wish were different was not an easy task. It took years of practice, and lots of self talk. To find peace with myself I needed awareness, devotion and willingness. We have to be open and ready to accept our “imperfections.” We have to be willing to choose to love ourselves completely, no matter what. The parts of me I needed to change, (belief system, attitude, nutrition...) I worked hard on changing, and I'm still working on it. It takes time, perseverance, patience and lots of compassion for myself. From my strong will to change my dysfunctional programming, my world transformed. Each of us has this power within. I came to know that life is all about attitude. A great attitude can change any situation. Life is meant to flow and we are meant to fly. If we don’t like where we are in our life, we can change our experience.
My dyslexia makes it difficult for me to express myself verbally and yet I love sharing. I have no problem expressing myself on paper, because I give myself permission to make mistakes. I can spend hours on the same paragraph and that doesn’t bother me one bit. I know my writing will be corrected eventually. I ask the Universe to send me the right information, the right circumstances and the right teachers to help me with my writing. With this knowledge I let go and trust that everything will go as planned. Don’t let your “imperfections” your dyslexia, or whatever challenge you have stop you. If you cannot change it, work with it, work around it. You have the power to create whatever your heart desires, no matter what your condition or circumstance.
Self-acceptance means loving fully who we are. There is truly no imperfection. Everything is perfect just the way it is. My experience taught me that struggles, challenges, passions, desires were all sent to help us discover our unique purpose. If I hadn’t suffered from depression nor have dyslexia, I couldn’t speak about it today, hoping to make a difference somewhere, somehow. Life is what we make of it. We are not always responsible for the things that happen to us, but we are responsible for how we react when they do happen. We have the power to change our experience. We can shift our perception... “I have the gift of dyslexia.” Doesn’t that sound better? I may not be the best reader, the best speaker, but that doesn’t stop me. I have something important to say and I am doing it in my own way. The key here is to follow your heart, your passion and the rest is in God’s hands. We all have a unique purpose, and there is an audience out there for what each of us has to offer.
Love and live inspired,
