Quit Shoulding on Yourself

I saw one of these on FB this morning.  I see them all the time and they break my heart.  It is a negative dressed up to LOOK positive.    It goes basically something like this.. I am inferior in someway, lacking a quality I “should” have but its ok… blah..blah..blah.

I vehemently disagree.  We have GOT to quit “shoulding” all over ourselves. Focusing on what we aren’t and chastising ourselves (however delicately) for not being something else in NEGATIVE SELF TALK, no matter how eloquently framed.  It is self talk that harms us and limits our success.  Moreover, what we focus on GROWS!

I submit to you that YOU are exactly who you “should” be.  You are YOU, exactly as you were created to be!   We are each who we are, where we are right now, because we  are SUPPOSED to be.  Right now is right on time and we couldn’t learn the lessons that God has for us if we were anyone else, any where else!

Here is today’s challenge: Celebrate yourself!  Focus on what you ARE!  Post to your facebook wall “I am so grateful that God created me to be…… {insert something nice about yourself here}.  If you are reading this you are AMAZING.  I don’t in invest in anyone who isn’t!  So WORK IT!
