Three Cups of Chai Cake ~Courage, Compassion and Connection
It is connection that gives meaning and purpose to our lives… in fact we are neurologically wired to seek connection with others.
Some of us fear that we are not worthy of connection, that’s the inner voice that whispers “I’m not good enough” or “It’s too good to be true.”
Some people just seem to innately have a joie de vivre confident attitude toward life.
They have an assured sense of worthiness, they trulybelieve they are deserving of love and belonging. But how did they achieve this?
Well, they simply fully embraced their vulnerability… because what makes you vulnerable also makes you beautiful to others. It is the willingness to say “I love you” first, to leap into something when there are no guarantees or promises of success, to take a chance.
3 Cups of Chai…
1. Courage – have the courage to tell our story with our whole heart and have the courage to be imperfect in front of others.
2. Compassion – show compassion for ourselves and forgive our mistakes and in turn be compassionate toward others. This authentic whole-hearted embracing of your life and those in your life will bring you…
3. Connection… when you let go of what you think you should be and just speak and act from your heart and trust that it is beautiful, you will feel connected with yourself and others.
As a parent, the only message we need to give our children is not one of attaining perfection, but simply that all children are worthy of love and belonging…
Let ourselves be seen, deeply and vulnerably seen.
Let us love with our whole hearts, even without guarantees
And practice gratitude and joy.
Believe that we are enough, just as we are.
