I met Peter Rengel from HAI workshop, he offers a great workshop called: Living life in the now in Berkeley twice a year, each for 8 weeks, it’s base on his book: Living life in love. I attended the spring class and felt it worked tremendously on me, it taught me how to do heart meditation, it helped me opened my heart, so I signed up for fall class to repeat as well.
Each week during class we will have some topics to ponder on and daily meditation to do. This week’s topic is about what do you love about yourself and how can you love yourself more?
It is usually hard to think what do we love ourselves more, since most of the time we think about what we did wrong and what we can do better. It is like we are never enough no matter you are 10 years old, 30 years old or 50 years old, we always have room to improve. I am really glad Peter holding this space for us so we can take a break from our criticize mind and think about how wonderful we are.
So what do I love about myself? I started to ponder and got the below list:
I am compassionate, loving, real, self-aware, sensitive and uplifting, I have lots of good hopes of life, I learn from mistake. I am lovely when I smile(maybe when I am not too, I don’t know). I love that I keep exercise. I love all the beautiful things in life. I am courageous, I have integrity, I am congruent between doing and saying. I take care of my parents and love kids. (My niece said I am the best aunt in the world!) I am a good cook, I am truthful to myself, I am sincere to my friends. I am self sustainable. I can lead a really good life by myself. I am nice to myself. I love my body, I love my hair, I love my hand, I love my feet. I feel I have a healing power. My business partner said when we first see something blurry, I can quickly come out an idea on how to proceed and find out solution and take action. I love that I have strong ability and strong execution. I love that I am very good at multi-tasking, I can handle lots of things at same time. I have great intuition, I can feel how people think and feel and just pick it up from universe. I never remember bad things about people, I forget things fast. I am simple, I set my own boundaries, I am loyal and my boyfriend will feel really safe to be with me.
After I listed out so many things I love about myself, I feel so much joy and so peaceful. It is amazing to see that I have so many good qualities that I love about myself. What do you love about yourself? 🙂
