"Life always put you in the exact circumstances to help you confront your most limiting beliefs. This is done to absolve you of the tendency of constantly dimming your light.
Nothing happens because you were good or bad. Things occur to remind you what you believe to be true. Once a limiting view point is seen to only be a way of dimming your light, such a belief dissolves, which gives your circumstances greater permission to transform.
Whether it’s a belief in unfairness or being confused as to why your good behavior doesn’t seem to be regularly rewarded, layer by layer, you are stripped of each limiting belief. This occurs until all that remains is the respect, awe, and wonder for the magnificent gift of life that refuses to allow you more time to keep playing small.
With each step forward, may you love yourself more, not less.
Welcome to the heart of surrender."
