I'm just finishing my long weekend with my extended family and I have to admit that it brought up some anxiety...know what I mean? For me, I have this thing on my lip that made me feel less valuable and almost made me miss Thanksgiving. I was actually afraid of being looked at as a circus-freak I felt so self concious. That being said, I put my fears out there to my family and was met with support and compassion. Of course, it then begs the question of who was not thinking I'm 'good enough' and it was me not them! And I thought I had conquered that fear!
I guess it goes to show me that even though I work on my spiritual self regularly that I still have growing to do and that's ok. If I can love me regardless of how I look and keep on smiling, laughing and growing then I'm evolving.
Perhaps my lip wart was in time for Halloween or perhaps it was in time for what I needed but my lack of compassion for myself was epic. So now, regardless of if I have an imperfect nose, a little extra curvature on my hips and now the wart on my face I will still love me. Think about something you don't like about your appearance and wished would go away but instead you are going to love it away instead.
You are valuable warts and all.
