Congratulations! You’ve made it to the end of How to Feel Beautiful! I know there was a lot of information in this course, a lot of challenges, and I know that you did your very best. I hope you feel that, too.
Today I want to leave you with the reminder to allow yourself to be human.
What the media portrays is not what it means to be human. It’s an image. An ad. A sell. A seed that you are not enough. A constant longing for more. But you don’t want to become someone you’re not. You want to be you. You want to let go. You want freedom and joy and peace.
Now you know that you are a beautiful human. You are gloriously you. You can create anything you want for your beautiful life. You have the power to choose your thoughts, to release limiting beliefs, to give yourself love, to really see yourself, and to celebrate the beauty of all human beings.
Healing is not a one and done. It's is continual work. Growth happens every single moment you choose to show up for yourself. Remember that piece of paper you wrote down your feelings on in the beginning of this course? Go back and take a look. See the work you've put in. Acknowledge your growth. It's happening whether it's big or small. Honor yourself each step of the way.
Love is always present. It’s always within you, and nothing anyone says or does to you will ever take that away. You have the choice to open your heart and feel it or to shrink away in fear. But you’re going to choose love more and more. You’re going to choose to be brave and bold and beautiful.
So today I leave you with this beautiful poem by Courtney Walsh:
Dear Human: You’ve got it all wrong.
You didn’t come here to master unconditional love.
That is where you came from and where you’ll return.
You came here to learn personal love.
Universal love. Messy love. Sweaty love.
Crazy love. Broken love. Whole love.
Infused with divinity. Lived through the grace of stumbling.
Demonstrated through the beauty of… messing up. Often.
You didn’t come here to be perfect. You already are.
You came here to be gorgeously human. Flawed and fabulous.
And then to rise again into remembering.
But unconditional love? Stop telling that story.
Love, in truth, doesn’t need ANY other adjectives.
It doesn’t require modifiers.
It doesn’t require the condition of perfection.
It only asks that you show up. And do your best.
That you stay present and feel fully.
That you shine and fly and laugh and cry
and hurt and heal and fall and get back up
and play and work and live and die as YOU.
It’s enough. It’s Plenty.
So keep showing up and doing your best. I am so honored to have been a part of your journey. Sending you so much love today. Please shoot me a message and let me know how you’re feeling after 31 full days of working on yourself.
Remember you can come back to these lessons as often as you need.
