Day 40: Projecting Acceptance in My Life
I’m so grateful that I’ve noticed the feeling of acceptance permeating into every facet of my life. I no longer instantly jump into judgment of myself or others. I’m projecting acceptance in my life, so I’m attracting people who I know are meant to be here. I don’t feel the need to focus on people who don’t get me. I used to feel unworthy and unlovable when people didn’t like or respect me, now I don’t take their thoughts and feelings personal. A person’s perceptions of me are their business. If they are blaming, judging, shaming, or hating me, that is their own darkness to work out. I accept that. I will continue to project acceptance and trust that whoever/whatever comes into my life is there for a reason and will stay as long as they are meant to stay.
I love not having to attach myself to what I think is best, I can just be the best version of myself that I can and trust what comes my way. I’m here to learn and grow. I get opportunities to learn from every experience and by accepting this, I project my acceptance onto the world. I also accept when something doesn’t feel right, I can trust my instincts and create healthy boundaries.
I’ve noticed more people who are struggling with acceptance have crossed my path. I know they came my way for a reason and I’m grateful for the opportunity to hand them the seed I was handed. I accept that they will do with it what they see fit, and that’s ok. I’m not attached to the result. I’m just honored to be apart of their journey in any way I’m meant to be in it.
I’ve recognized shifts in all my relationships as I allow people the space to speak from where they are. I have more compassion and empathy even if I my thoughts and beliefs differ from theirs. I’ve reduced the conflicts in my life by projecting acceptance into my thought and responses. Differences no longer feel like walls. I know there are opportunities to learn. I trust that I’m with the people who are meant to be in my life until they’re not. I not only accept their place in my life, I appreciate it. Whether the relationship with them is a challenge that I get to learn from or a peaceful relationship I am inspired by—I’m blessed.
I’ve learned so much from my journey by projecting acceptance into the learning experiences that come my way. I feel peace instead of chaos. My focus is on what I can be grateful for instead of what I don’t have in my life. I love what is coming back to me from projecting my acceptance. My perspective has expanded to a level I’m beyond grateful for, because it makes me appreciate life so much more.
I accept that sometimes I will need guidance from the Divine Creator to lead me through the lesson and help me to keep my faith when faced with my darkness. I pray that I can stay connected to the light, so that even in moments of darkness I can find my way out quickly and go back to projecting the love and acceptance that’s in my heart.
With Love and Gratitude,
A Better Me
