...because you already are your best self!
You may define your “best self” as thinner, smarter, more energetic, balanced, and organized, but that’s the wrong way to look at it.
If you’re breathing, you’re there!
You have to start with good news; otherwise all of your efforts will stem from a space of scarcity, disgust, and inferiority.
Reread that last line a few more times because if you get the joke, it will fundamentally transform your approach to abundance, delight, and enoughness.
A better question to ask is: How can I reveal and express my best self?
The answer to this question will move you towards courage and generosity.
You are full of light, and while you may have had experiences that informed you it’s best to conceal your brightness, it doesn’t change the fact it’s still there, waiting to astonish the world.
As for expression, the Latin root word is flu, easily recalled through the English word fluid, a state of matter which, if not contained, “flows.”
The river doesn’t need to be pushed, it’s already flowing, and you’re already in it!
So please, stop believing you’re anything less than your best self right NOW and shift your mental energy towards wondering how to surrender and get out of the way.
"Those who flow as life flows know they need no other force.” Lao Tzu
