If you want to observe the real you work on gratitude first? ……What?


.
.
Gratitude has to be found, must be genuine and include yourself.
.
Yes, gratitude for who we are, our situation in this world, the challenges we face, unworthy parts along with the worthy.
.
My journey deepened when I was fine with who I was, almost proud of my childhood, my survival and passion for life, instead of feeling unworthy at my core.
.
My soul felt shamed by my father, constantly criticized by demanding perfection, beaten for any perceived indiscretions.
.
Now, I would not change a thing, it has made me who I am, and for the first time, that is wonderful.
.
My flaws and me have found peace, hidden no more, shame has died, replaced by unlimited opportunity.
.
We need not be perfect, how boring to waste a life like that, so let go, exert maximum effort, winning, losing, tying does not matter, relax, live fully, smile!!!!!!!!!!

    Smile though your heart is aching
    Smile even though it’s breaking.
    When there are clouds in the sky
    you’ll get by.

    If you smile through your fear and sorrow
    Smile and maybe tomorrow
    You’ll see the sun come shining through
    For you.

    Light up your face with gladness,
    Hide every trace of sadness.
    Although a tear may be ever so near

    That’s the time you must keep on trying
    Smile, what’s the use of crying.
    You’ll find that life is still worthwhile-
    If you just smile.

    That’s the time you must keep on trying
    Smile, what’s the use of crying.
    You’ll find that life is still worthwhile-
    If you just smile.
