I noticed that someone i follow on Twitter recently wrote a post explaining that what she chooses to share with her followers is not her whole life. Because people had been judging her. Criticising her "perfect life".
We never know the full extent of what is going on in someone else's life. I saw this recent post by Tara Stiles on Strala Yoga's Facebook page, and I loved it so I thought I would share with you guys...
Let yourself be inspired by those around you whilst being true to yourself.
You are already perfect. The work to do is to keep you connected to believing that.
Shift your practice from trying to fix things about yourself to reconnecting with yourself. When we look outside with an unconnected gaze, silly comparison and judgments rise to the surface and nag like mosquitos. When too much time unconnected goes by, we end up swatting, lashing out at ourselves and others.
There is no need for this kind of tension and anxiety in our lives. When we have tension and anxiety and lash out at others, we cause destruction within our own bodies. When we observe lashing out headed in our direction we have a choice, either to stay connected to ourselves and practice ease, or to lash back and participate in destruction.
We have so much choice in how we live, what we think, what we do, and how we affect our lives and the lives of others.
Energetically, intention and thoughts matter as much as a push, shove, or a hug. Improve your life by softening your thoughts about yourself and about others. Practice believing in yourself so you aren't shoved into a corner of comparison, judgment, and lashing. Practice believing in yourself and reconnecting with yourself so you can live a happy, meaningful life.
