Open the Door of Self-Worth

Open the Door of Self-Worth

Find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and dark which that thing provides.
— Junichiro Tanizaki

Take a moment to realize that you are alive again today. You are not only alive, but ripe with the potential to share your own personal vitality and life. 

In every human life on Earth, there is a door that exists that no one can go through for us.

To enter through this door, one must first travel the road of self-discovery. We must experience and face all aspects of ourselves. Whatever our life situation, our blessings or our wounds, over and over again we inevitably return to the same core problems and familiar issues. The aspects and circumstances that we avoid somehow find a way to resurface. We will repeatedly face these similar situations if we choose to not accept and truly love ourselves. 

For the cycle to end, one must actively choose to open the door of self-worth. 

As you move through this threshold, you choose to abandon self doubt and self-deprecation. In turn, you discover both security and relief. You will be able to move from a place of love rather than a place of fear. Instead of running from yourself, you will embrace all parts of your existence, both the good and the bad, the dark and the light. You will understand how this combination of darkness and light makes you whole. Once this door is opened, you will discover the boundless gateway of loving yourself. In this openness, you will remember your essence. 

Every moment is whole and filled with boundless potential. You are here to share this potential and your worth.

The stuff of our lives doesn’t change. It is we who change in relation to it.
