The Smile of Success

“Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.” ― Maya Angelou

If you had asked me a decade ago if I felt successful, the answer would be no. Sure, I had run a successful business, I had overcome a lot of physical problems and would even be considered a miracle by many in the medical profession, but I did not feel successful because I did not like myself. I cannot stress how important this is. If you have nothing but an emptiness inside, that is all you have to give to anyone else. It doesn’t matter how many awards you win, how many certifications you have, or how many followers you have on social media. That emptiness is what you feel when you close your eyes at night.

Dear Angels, knowing that we accomplished something does not mean that we believe we are worthy of being acknowledged. Many people do great works and feel happy inside while others also do great works and it does not feel enough as they struggle with feeling unworthy. Statements like “it was nothing” or “anybody could do it” show the underlying lack of self-esteem and self-worth.

Dear Ones, until you see the true beauty that is inside of you, no one can make you see it. All the words in the universe will be met with resistance as long as you see yourself of unworthy of them. When you have done a good deed for another, feel how wonderful that is. They don’t even have to know that you were the one who did it. What matters is that you gave from the heart with a pure agenda. It is these acts of grace given unselfishly that will help you to see the real you, the you that wants others to feel loved. When you can lay your head down on your pillow at night and smile because you loved, that is success. Just keep loving, Dear Ones, and that smile will reflect what is on the inside – a successful being.

Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.

Today, I promise to keep loving and smiling.
