To accept ourselves as we are means to value our imperfections as much as our perfections.
- Sandy Bierig
"When we simply accept what is, neither good or bad, right nor wrong, we sit in the pure space of now, in this one moment in time.
"When we see ourselves, all of ourselves, just as we are, without judgements, without looking at ourselves as we think others see us, we can find peace. If we can do this, we have a much better chance of accepting others just as they are. Our relationships with other people improve. Our own self-esteem improves.
"Acceptance leads to peace and feels so good. Today I am being very gentle with myself and accepting myself just as I am."
