“This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature. Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy.”
That’s a quote by Susan Polis Schutz, and I absolutely love it! “Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you! Take the power to make your life happy!”
It’s your life, no one else’s! I say that all the time…because it’s true.
I say that all the time because it’s also something we tend to forget.
In our natural human search and longing for love, approval, and acceptance from others, we often forget the primal importance and pre-requisite above all else – loving, approving, and accepting our own selves. First and foremost.
We can either be our greatest ally, friend, and supporter, or we can be our own worst critic and enemy – the choice is always ours!
We also tend to forget our own natural ability, capability, and amazingly advantageous capacity for endlessly creating ourselves.
The counter-intuitive truth is that loving, approving, and accepting ourselves on the one hand, and simultaneously also endlessly creating ourselves on the other, those two hands are not mutually exclusive.
On the contrary, those two hands not only complement one another, but they actually endow each other with more of the other.
Because the more we learn to truly love, approve, and accept ourselves, the more free we are to endlessly create ourselves. And the more we create ourselves, the more vast and deep our self-love becomes.
It’s a beautiful dance! Like so many other things in life, it’s the paradoxical and harmonious balance of the law of duality and polarity.
Creating ourselves is an essential component of continuously and forever learning, growing, and evolving throughout our life; what it actually means to become our best selves!
Creating ourselves is the antidote to getting stuck or staying complacent in the good times, and it’s also the antidote to getting beat-down or defeated during the bad times.
We have that power – to endlessly create ourselves, and our life- and it’s ours for the taking!
Every day, and every moment we can create ourselves, and our life. We can take the power to control our own life!
We can do more of what we love, be more of who we love, and realize all of our dreams!
We can learn from, grow because of, overcome, and rise above all of our challenges!
We can love ourselves! Truly, wholly, and unconditionally.
We can care for, serve, contribute, impact, inspire, and support others!
We can create passion, meaning, purpose, and fulfillment and make our life a happy, joyous, adventurous, and miraculous one!
We can become the best version of ourselves and live our best life!!!
We just need to remember.
This life is yours! Remember your power. Create yourself, endlessly.
