In this moment, I recognize that there is within me a perfect Self; A Self that is not dysfunctional; A Self that is not weak but strong;Not small, but huge;
Not in pain, but in peace; Not scared and alone, but in Grace; I have been limited by my beliefs of weakness, smallness, pain, and fear. At times I wish these parts of me banished; At times I get so weary of the struggle; But I could no more banish these parts of myself than I could turn my back on a hurting child. These parts are my teachers and there is gold to be found. My wounds and fears do not define my limits; But show me the way to all of my Self if I am willing to listen. In this moment, I accept all parts of me. In this moment, Accept the parts that think me small That need my understanding and compassion. And I accept them back as a loving parent.
