When practicing presence, be sure to allow full self-acceptance in the moment. Whether you are prepared or not prepared, anxious or confused, happy or sad, simply allow yourself to be. If thoughts, doubt or judgements arise, let them flow out of your mind as easily as they flowed in. Focus instead on what is most important … loving your true self! Remember that you do not need to be totally confident and clear when embarking on a new way of living and being. Just bring an open heart every step of the way!
