Promise of a new Day

To find the good life you must become yourself.
—Dr. Bill Jackson—

The more we run away from ourselves, the greater the disenchantment with all the opportunities each day offers. When we live far from our own center, we ensure distance from all the persons in our life. Happiness in all things eludes us when we become distant from self and others.
Finding ourselves, closing the gap on the distance created, is a by-product of personal inventory. We must know our wholeness before we can celebrate ourselves. And with celebration comes relief, freedom, and a readiness to tackle the opportunities presented to us.
Self-acceptance fosters self-love—the necessary prerequisite to the discovery of a good life. It’s within reach. We must decide to move wholly towards it.
I can be excited about the chance to celebrate myself today. My qualities are special and deserve to be recognition.
