Accepting The State We Are In, Accepting Ourselves.

Episode Transcript: It’s just all about accepting the state we are in accepting ourselves.

Accepting the state we are: We’re made up of imperfections and mistakes, but that doesn’t change the fact that we’re here, that we exist. When we learn to accept ourselves – all of our flaws, our sadness, our pasts – then our lives are filled with peace. Learning to accept ourselves can be difficult. It can be even more difficult to accept the parts of ourselves that we cannot change. But if we commit to making changes in our lives, it can make us feel more fulfilled and content with who we are.

Hello, beautiful people. How are you all doing? How was the start of 2022 for you? Well, to be honest, it was pretty tough for me. If I think about the end of 2021, and the beginning of 2022,

 

0:51  

It was in a pretty easy period, to be very honest. And this period got me thinking, it got me thinking a lot about all the work I do on myself. It makes me think a lot of whether I’m moving forward, or whether I’m stuck, or what’s happening. 

 

1:14  

And this is exactly what happened to me. I resisted the state that I was in. Now, it’s amazing, because I’m able to see it now and I’m able to work on it. But at the moment at the time. Well, it’s amazing, because now I can see it. I can observe it. I’m aware of it. But when I was in that state, I remember my thoughts were all about why am I still here? Why am I feeling that? What’s the message behind it? What work have I not done yet? And the tone of voice was not very kind, it was mainly me being tired of that state. 

 

2:02  

And I realized, the more I was tired of that state, the more it persisted. I didn’t feel like doing anything. I love giving classes. I love teaching yoga. I love having clients, I love it. But at one point, I was tired of even doing that. All I wanted to do was be a couch potato. But I couldn’t allow myself to do that. I didn’t give myself the permission or the ability to do that. So even though I was procrastinating and nothing was getting done, I was not able to enjoy my time off. I was not able to enjoy my laziness, I was not able to enjoy my desire of doing absolutely nothing. And then at one point, it just hit me. 

 

3:03  

I’ve been asking all those questions, what am I supposed to learn? And how am I going to get out of that state? And what am I going to do to to feel better. But the one thing I didn’t do is welcome that state with open arms. As soon as I felt it, I resisted it. I wanted it gone. I wanted to to be the dynamic me again, I wanted to be organized again, I wanted my house to be clean again, I wanted. I wanted all the things I didn’t feel at the moment. 

 

3:41  

And yet, instead of welcoming the state of wanting to do nothing, I resisted. I resisted that part of myself. By telling you that it was not welcome. I rejected a part of me. And by rejecting that part of me, I started hurting myself more.

And so I wanted to do this. I wanted to record this podcast just to let you know that sometimes it’s just all about accepting the state we are in accepting ourselves with our imperfections, accepting ourselves with what we call our weaknesses. 

 

4:50  

Sometimes it’s about allowing ourselves to be what we need to be in that moment, no matter what that is. It’s really about learning to let go of those resistances, it’s really about learning to let go of those belief systems that tell us that a certain way of being is good. And another way of being is bad. At the end, they’re all ways of being. And we need to embrace them all. We need to accept them all. 

 

5:30  

And the moment I realized that is the moment was the day I woke up, feeling very, very energetic and wanting to move and start organizing my life again. And so I thought that that would be an important message to share the acceptance of one state, even though it won’t fit the definition of a healthy human being for us. 

 

6:01  

We need to learn to accept all the aspects of ourselves. We need to learn to love them and let them be just as they are. And yes, sometimes we don’t feel like it. And that is absolutely okay. Sit with it, observe it. If you can go around it great. If you can’t go around it, great. But sit with that feeling. Breathe through it, accept it, welcome it. And then be wherever you need to be. 

 

6:42  

Well, that’s, I know, that’s a short podcast. That’s all I’ve got for you today. Cuz you see, today I am in acceptance of me not being inspired. So I hope this little testimony serves you in any way possible. Thank you. Thank you so much for listening to me.
