“We already have everything we need. There is no need for self-improvement.”
~Pema Chodron, Start Where You Are
Deep inside each and every thing is the blueprint, the DNA, the seed, that has everything we need to become all we are meant to be. No matter the trials or obstacles, the answer to the situation lies within.
As a mother, I have to tap into this truth constantly! I ask myself: “Am I saying or doing the right thing right now? Are my children eating right?,” and so on… When my sons were born, I had a situation in the Natal Intensive Care Unit. It concerned a procedure that was being done, and I had to soothe my 3-day-old “preemie” sons through it. I had NO idea what I was doing; I had little sleep and was still sore from my cesarean section. But there was a moment, when all of a sudden I knew, nothing anyone could tell me would give me a better, deeper knowing than I had from within in that moment. I knew what to do and how I needed to do it.
I have had that deep knowing many times before and after that. It’s that calm, sudden assurance that one “just knows” what is to come and what is to be done. I trust it, and I tap into it!
Affirm: I am enough, I have enough, I am already self improved!
