Intuition

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I will meet you there.

Today I've been thinking a lot about appreciation, acceptance and pleasing others. Sometimes a person might just go mad thinking about what other people think about him/her.

As Marianne Williamson has said:

"Pleasing others. Well, we all know the meaning of these two precious words, don’t we? Who doesn’t want to please others, who doesn’t want to please EVERYBODY? There is nothing wrong in wanting to be liked, in wanting others to enjoy your presence, in wanting to please others, but when your main focus is just that, when your main concern is to constantly please others, even if that means not being true to yourself, even if that means betraying your own self, then you definitely need to start questioning your behavior.

Let me tell you a shocking truth. No matter how hard you’ll try and no matter how much time and energy you’ll invest in trying to be this and that, in trying to be liked by everybody, wearing all kind of different masks, none of them really yours, you will never be able to please everybody. Never! It’s impossible, it can’t be done, so STOP IT!

Embrace the real you, accept it, own it, love it. and you will be a lot happier, people around you will be a lot happier, and your life will get a lot easier and lighter.

Don’t compare yourself with others, don’t try to be different, don’t try to be something else just so you can fit in, just so you can be liked. Be yourself, and believe me when I say that, the moment you do just that, the moment you accept and see yourself for what you really are, people will like you more than they ever did, and you will get so much approval that you will get “tired” of it. Be yourself, be YOU and know that the world needs more people who aren’t afraid to show their real selves, their real personalities, their light, and their beauty, because the moment you allow yourself to just be, the moment you will let your own light shine, you will unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As you’re liberated from your own fear (of being you, fear of being judged, fear of not being accepted, loved, etc.) your presence will automatically liberate others."

But how come it's so hard from time to time to stay true to oneself? Sometimes it feels like a constant fight.

I'm a strong believer in intuition. I guess the only thing one can do is to follow one's heart and gut feeling.

Tomorrow I'm finally going to the hairdresser to create a refreshed hair look for the summer. I've decided to use Mary-Kate Olsen as my style inspiration since I this summer want to stay blonde and go even blonder!


Let's see what the result will be...and how blonde I can become!?
