As many of you know, I’m off work at the moment with a hip injury that I actually first suffered with 5 years ago. Well, the devil makes work for idle minds and you can spend a lot of time on the internet when you’re recovering and can’t move about very well! (It’s amazing how much time you can waste on the internet!)
Fortunately, there is a good side to this. I was speaking with my gorgeous Take Care Project lovelies about the work of Robert Holden recently, and have just bought his beautiful book, ‘Life Loves You’, a collaboration with Louise Hay. This phrase, ‘Life loves you’, is bringing me so much comfort at the moment, so I really feel called to dive more into these incredible teachings.
Why You Should Give Up Self-Improvement
‘Why You Should Give Up Self-Improvement’ in an incredible YouTube video that I stumbled across this morning. It might seem strange that a self-help teacher should give us such crazy advice, but there is a lot to be said for Robert’s way of looking at things and it makes a lot of sense. If, like me, you find yourself striving and trying hard to make yourself a better person, the advice Robert offers in this video is like a breath of fresh air.
I had to laugh when I stumbled across this video, as in many ways it echoes an old article of mine that I shared on my Facebook page last week. Self-help is a fantastic tool, but it’s not designed to make us feel inadequate. We need to use it more as a guide, rather than constantly believing that we’re a problem to be fixed.
(The main lesson of the video starts from 9:20, but the rest is fantastic too!)
What did you learn from the video my love? Are you striving for self-improvement or self-acceptance? Let me know in the comments below- I’d love to chat about this.
With love from the sofa, Katie xxx
