I have realized that I look for validation through so many avenues….a number on a scale, a pat on my back, a comment about my shoes, from my work. If people like my ideas, sign up for my classes, or comment on my blog — I feel such a huge sense of approval. Of a sense for being on the “right” track.
I strongly know that it is now time to be validated by much more than these external measures. I want to be validated for who I choose to be in this world. To be validated for how I choose to be in the world. To be validated for being instead of doing. I want to be validated for being just plain love.
The reality is that if I was 100% self validating myself then I wouldn’t need the external validation to confirm anything. It wouldn’t matter. My ego wouldn’t need it. Whether people agreed or not just wouldn’t work in to the equation or change the process or the outcome. I would be at peace and full of love for myself.
Part of my just plain love journey is to find 100% internal validation, a divine connection to myself.
To fully love and accept myself just the way I am, cute shoes and all.
