Cleaning up your stuff and your life is getting rid of what does not serve you or doesn’t make you feel good. Cleaning up means allowing your authentic self to come out. If you can’t be you, who will?
Living a good life means being yourself.
Some people say that they don’t know who they are. Well, if you have done the clean up work then you know who you aren’t. What you are left with helps to define you. Living your life as a lie can cause deep suffering within your body. Trying to conform to other’s ideals of who you should be can actually cause cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Who wants that? You can only live your life for yourself, because you must live within yourself.
Being authentic does not mean harming others or things. It does not mean you get to be an a$$hole. Being authentic is treasuring the uniqueness of you, the beautiful, spontaneous, quirky, creative, sparkly inner being that radiates with joy. Now that’s what I’m talking about!
Maybe you think you are weird. So? What is wrong with weird? A lot of people are and like weird. Find them and buddy up. Maybe you are very traditional and old-fashioned. Nothing wrong with that either. Lots of alike-you’s out there. Spirit wants to grow so therefore, interesting, unusual and quirky people were created. Spirit loves this. I think Spirit has a giant paintbrush and a bucket of colors and has an absolute riot dashing them on the canvas of life. Now isn’t that just a beautiful thought?
We just finished some of our decorating projects. It was a joy for me, because I allowed my artistic side to come out. I went for bold, with a little bit of quirky humor and that suits my Sweetie too. It turned out fab, if I say so myself. I’m sharing a few of the pics with the hopes that you’ll be inspired to allow your inner delight to come out.
You do you.
