Picture yourself as happy, carefree child – maybe 6 or 7 years of age.
Where are you? What are you doing? Try to identify what you might be thinking and feeling.
What makes this child so adorable? What makes your heart fill with love for her?
This is the real you.
The you you used to be. Before all those painful, damaging experiences. Before you stopped liking and loving yourself.
This is the you who got lost along the way.
But that you still exists – beneath the layers of the years.
That you is still there – maybe buried, but still there.
Oh, wouldn’t it be wonderful to reconnect with her!
If only you could access that child once again.
“This is the beginning of loving yourself. Welcome home.”
