Every now and again, I find myself paddling madly upstream against the prevailing current of well-being, most especially when I’m judging myself for being human, imperfect, flawed.
Today, I choose I to celebrate my imperfection as the adventure of living, knowing that, as Thomas Drier so wisely reminds us, “Today should always be our most wonderful day.”
I so enjoy being here now, in this physical body – to love, to laugh, to delight in the beauty of this natural world and to flow juicy orgasmic energy to what aligns with my soul…that which nurtures and sustains and uplifts me. I appreciate the opportunity to express my authentic gifts, to show up here on the page naked and unadulterated and seemingly vulnerable. I’m seeing the value of being here fully in the moment, forgiving myself for being less than perfect, socially awkward, not up to my own standards.
I acknowledge that my harsh self-judgment is neither productive nor inspiring. So I choose to remember that enjoying life is about being able to re-member to live in the now, recalling the true essence of BEing in this moment.
And so can you.

Yes, self-judgement doesn’t add a minute to your life. Self-enjoyment and helping others make life more meaningful.

I can relate to running against the current streams, and also falling into the trap of self-judgment and condemnation. My body is made for adventures and I’m learning to embrace the mystery of each precious moment and experience!
