Total self-esteem requires total and unconditional acceptance of yourself. You are a unique and worthy individual, regardless of your mistakes, defeats and failures, despite what others may think, say or feel about you or your behavior.
If you truly accept and love yourself, you won’t have a driving need for attention and approval. Self-esteem is a genuine love of self. Stop all adverse value judging of yourself. Stop accepting the adverse value judgments of others. Purge yourself of all condemnation, shame, blame, guilt and remorse.

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to another blessed Friday to celebrate the small things.
This week I celebrate being f r e e. Praise The Lord! Baby steps, prayer and faith, in The Lord, gave me victory over distractions and rhetoric. I thought I was free before.
We are not free when when a mole hill becomes a mountain. We are not free when someone’s hurtful words attack us. We are not free when we give it power to bother us.
When we know who we are in Christ; when we know our strengths and weaknesses; when we keep the faith; we eventually come to believe we are being f r e e in every area of life.
Being f r e e from angst.
Being f r e e from second guessing decisions.
No more coulda, woulda, shoulda. F r e e.
Being f r e e from strife.
Being f r e e from comparisons.
Being f r e e from ______________(fill in the blank).
See, there will always be someone saying something about nothing or causing angst. Bless them. Move on. F r e e.
So this week, I’m totally f r e e, knowing that, at the end, of the day, God loves me, I have his mercy and his grace, regardless of others opinions or belief. Glory to God.
Abundant blessings my friends and enjoy your weekend being f r e e.
Your comments or thoughts are welcome. (smile)
