Can You Accept Your "Good"?
The other day I was thinking about the time that my hubby turned to me and said,
“You are the most beautiful woman I’ve ever met.”
In the past, I would have shied away from his compliment or immediately tried to offer him a compliment in return.
But that day, I looked at him, smiled, and said thank you.
Can you believe it?
For me, that was a huge step. I don't know what it is, but sometimes I find myself shying away from the good stuff. Nod your head yes, if you've realized yourself doing the same thing.
- How many times do people compliment you or say something nice, and your immediate reaction is to deflect your good?
- How many times do people offer you kind words, and you think they want something in return?
- How many times have people offered you help or tried to do something for you, and you responded, “No. That’s okay. I can handle it.” - even when you knew you needed the help?
Accepting Your "Good" Means...
You’ve asked for beautiful experiences, help, guidance, love, support, and for things to be easier, but are you really ready for it?
Can you accept your "good"?
The day he said that to me, I accepted it. I didn’t deflect. I didn’t search for a compliment to give back to him. I just smiled and accepted that he, in that moment, was inspired to offer some kind words & all I had to do was receive.
There are so many things waiting to reveal themselves to you.
Your "good" is all around you.
The good is coming to you as an answer to your prayers and your desire for more beautiful experiences. All you're being asked to do is embrace it.
Live Well & Keep Creating!
