Free to choose which illusion to believe.
There is no room for shame or regret in my life. I’m too full. I am too forgiven, too adored, too fully loved, too full of ideas and dreams and passion to waste my precious life pretending to be crippled by something that is imaginary, like shame. Shame is an illusion. It disappears so easily.
~Glennon Doyle Melton, American author of Carry On, Warrior
Why do you choose to punish yourself over and over again for something that has happened and cannot be changed? What is done is done. Now is the time for acceptance. Acceptance allows you to embrace all that you are, the miraculous and the imperfect. Shame is just an illusion; all negative emotions are. While you cannot change the events of the past, you can learn from them so that they positively affect your future. Your freedom of choice and awareness will allow you to break the negative patterns in your mind so you avoid dooming yourself to repeat the lesson. There is no time for ruminating over negative experiences. When you realize that continued shame or regret serves no purpose for your life, you will be free to hold your head high as the beauty of your personal journey unfolds. May you continue on your path empowered by positivity that guides you through your big and beautiful life! Shame is an illusion. When you are aware of that and no longer desire it, it disappears.
If all things are illusions, then choose one in which you are emboldened by the lessons learned and excited by your story. Then hold on as you prepare to feel your spirit soar!
