The Best Feeling in the World.

The best feeling in the world is when we’re true to ourselves,

When we accept ourselves,

When we speak what’s in our heart

Or react in a way that is authentic

To our experience,

Even if it isn’t pretty

Or nice

Or “acceptable.”

Even if others don’t like it

Or approve.

It means we are accepting of ourselves

And our inner experiences.

We’re self-accepting.

We all have things we’d like to shift




Break away from


Move toward



Welcome into our space.

But it’s important to accept everything—

Accept all of the parts of us,

As parts of us.

Even the parts that aren’t nice

Or pretty.

It is such a beautiful feeling—

To accept who we are

To be who we are.

And it’s the only way anything will shift

Or change

Or alter anyway.

We can’t break free from the things we refuse

To acknowledge

That we pretend don’t exist

That we deny

Or push away.

We can only change once we first accept—

When we allow for the truth of its

Existence to breathe within us,

Within our consciousness.

The best feeling is to be true to ourselves


And intentional.

If we can move with this honesty,

With this awareness,

With this acceptance,

With this self-knowledge and connection,

With this conscious intention,

We can feel solid within ourselves

Because we’ll know we’re moving

With awareness

And intention—

That we’re being conscious

And intentional.

That we’re honoring our experience

And who we are.

Because we’ll know we’re being true to ourselves.
