be yourself

Mother Nature freely expresses herself every day, and she doesn’t apologize for it. Most of us learn at an early age what we are taught as “good manners”. Good girls are seen, but not heard. Don’t express a different opinion. Never contradict an authority figure, even if they are wrong. And so on, and so on.

I love the writing of Don Miguel Ruiz and his book The Four Agreements. The Four Agreements have more to them than this, but this gives you a taste of them.

Be impeccable with your word – I love how it includes not speaking against yourself. How many times have you called yourself dumb or stupid?

Don’t take anything personally – what people say and do is a projection of their own reality, not yours.

Don’t make assumptions – this is for me the most important thing, as we assume we know what someone else is thinking and they think they know what we are thinking and the truth is that most of the time we are having two totally different conversations.

Always do your best – this is the only way to avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.

So the best advice is taken from the moon – be yourself and if you make some waves, just provide some beach towels. LOL.
