Brave Girl...

A little bird told me...

Some of you may already know of The Brave Girls Club.  In my quest to really know and BE me, I stumbled across this "club" when someone at SFTIO posted about it.  If you sign up for their newsletter, they send these "brave girl messages" every day during the work-week.

Some of them I haven't opened yet.

Some of them I have read and they just didn't apply to me.

And some of them are like a hammer hitting the daggone nail on the head!

Tonight's email:

Dear Beloved Girl,

Great frustration, hurt and anxiety can come from trying to get our worth and our acceptance from other people or from anything that is outside of our own selves and our own deepest truths.
This is huge for me... I have spent so many years looking for outside reassurances and acceptance...

Many of us want love more than anything in the world. We want love and we want acceptance...we want to be understood. Frustration comes when we do not accept the fact that we simply can not MAKE others love us, or accept us, or even understand us. This is why it is so important to first learn how to love ourselves....

OMG, there's the nail... and the hammer hitting it. 

When we can get in tune with our deepest truths....the truths that only come from listening to the very force that created us and placed this knowing inside of us.....we can find peace whenever we need it. When we do the work necessary to learn who we really are in spite of who the world may tell us we are....we can find the love and acceptance we so need...whether we have other people in our lives or not. We simply do not NEED to have constant reassurance from others....because there is a voice of knowing inside of us...a voice that comes from the only place that truly KNOWS who we are and what we are capable of.
This is where I think I am... working to get in tune with me and learn who I really am.  Again... nail... hammer... hitting...

Be o.k. with YOU, beautiful friend. Be o.k. with the moments of aloneness that come, and that sometimes stay. Be o.k. with sometimes feeling that no one understands or that no one is giving you exactly what you need.....because the only WHOLENESS of spirit that will come is from your own self and your own deepest truth. Be o.k. with this....this is where you will find peace. You can give your SELF love and acceptance, through listening to your deepest truths that come from your Creator. It will be real, true and authentic. And it will be enough.
And this is what I'm working toward.

It really will. It will be enough.

You are so very very loved.

I just love getting these emails.

  1. Since that email obviously spoke to you, I highly suggest that you head on over to amazon and order yourself a copy of Brene Brown's "The Gifts of Imperfection" which is all about letting go of the person you think you are supposed to be and embracing the person you really are, imperfections and all. I think you would really enjoy it. And it's not expensive - only about $10


I love hearing what you have to say. Thank you for sharing yourself with me!
