You are more amazing, magnificent and extraordinary than words can describe. You are a walking miracle and deserve all of the treasures that exist in this world.
You are love itself with legs and arms. A walking bundle of magic and divine potential.
But I love to challenge you to grow and fully awaken so I must say...
you can also be dumb, wrong, bad, stupid and a failure!
Yep true! There... I said it... and I'll say it again!
You can be dumb, wrong, bad, stupid and a failure.
How does it feel to hear those words?
Does it trigger you into defence? "No I'm not, how dare you insult me!"
Does it push your buttons?
What if those words came from your family or your partner?
Would it hurt more?
I only point to your natural humanness and flaws because the sooner you learn to embrace them the sooner you can fly through your life with the freedom to just be YOU.
I want that for you.
You deserve the freedom to be both brilliant and flawed... to be yourself.
You deserve the freedom to make mistakes, fall flat on your face, say the wrong thing, mess up completely and wind up looking like a fool.
We ALL do from time to time so better we just love ourselves anyway and laugh at our flaws.
When you have the freedom to be wildly imperfect ... you can finally relax.
You can then move through your day without fear of being seen as or accused of being bad, wrong, stupid or mean.
If you have embraced those natural qualities in yourself... you can even peacefully agree with people when they accuse you.
"Oh yeah you're right... I was being a doofus... sorry bout that."
Don't agree in a 'woe to me' kind of way... agree in a... 'I'm fabulously flawed and I'm ok with it' kinda way... even if the other person is clearly projecting their stuff.
There is great power in not needing to be right all the time... yet be aware there is a fine line between being a 'pushover' and being wise enough to not bother entering into an ego battle.
This magical life is an adventure and in all good adventure stories there are challenges, risks, slip ups and wrong turns.
So let me say it one more time and see how it feels now.... you can be dumb, wrong, bad, stupid and a failure.
Haha! Feel better this time?
I could just write you a mushy love letter filled with only praise and compliments but that wouldn't be real, wholesome, unconditional love.
Instead I want you to know that you are loved for your warts, wobbly bits, stupid mistakes and so called failures.
I want you to know that you are loved even if it seems to take you ages to learn some of your life lessons. Let's say "woohoo" on the dizzy merry go round of life!
I want you to know that you are loved just for being YOU... exactly as you are!
I want you to know that you are LOVE itself at the core and were designed to be humanly imperfect... so don't bother defending your flaws... rejoice in them. Yay humans!
The next time some one implies or tells you that you are dumb, wrong, bad, stupid or a failure (including yourself)... if it triggers hurt and you feel the fire of defence rising... use it as a playful opportunity to deepen your self acceptance and simply give a little agreeing nod and do a little proud dance to celebrate your flaws.
You are amazing!
All my love

To check my counselling/coaching packages
Here's some recent feedback from a client revealing the powerful benefits of coaching-
"I started reading Courtney's blogs and they resonated with me. I took the initiative to contact her and began a wonderful healing journey :) I love her light and 'down to earth' energy. I learnt that I AM good enough and deserve SO MUCH LOVE. That life's cycles need not be feared, they are blessings and gifts to grow from. I feel a veil has been lifted and I can see myself with more clarity and with more compassion. I gave this gift to myself and it was an unbelievable success! :) I know that I am empowered with new tools that will keep me anchored when life gets crazy, as it always will. Clarity and acceptance of my own humanness helps me be less self critical. I feel stronger, more connected to self and A LOT wiser. Courtney you are so intuitive and committed to reaching out to help others. Your playfulness and honesty are not normally contributed to the counselling profession but were appreciated so much. Your preparation was flawless, your listening and prompting skills were excellent and I felt nurtured, valued and honoured to work with you. Thank you so much. Tess Tanner QLD xo
