Our power lies not in becoming someone else, but in unfolding – revealing to the world who we have been created to be.
You don’t need to be something else or something different, who you are is perfect. So, give yourself permission to unfold stripping down to the rawest and most authentic version of yourself, and seeing it as brilliant and valuable. As you do, you’ll begin to see yourself living freely and glowing with light allowing you to experience the greatness you were destined for.
When you feel like what you are experiencing is not enough- instead of allowing yourself to get frustrated, anxious, discourage, or disappointed, choose to channel in a spirit of thankfulness.
Find something to be thankful for and begin to express gratitude. Because, no matter what is going on in your world- there’s plenty to be grateful for. You have blood pumping through your veins. You have air flowing through your lungs. You have an actively working brain & body to achieve. You have a roof over your head and food on your table. You have creativity that cannot be taken away and an undeniable purpose.
NO MATTER WHAT IS GOING ON, BE THANKFUL. (Not my words).
Don’t break a bird’s wings and then tell it to fly. Don’t break a heart and then tell it to love. Don’t break a soul and then tell it to be happy. Don’t see the worst in a person and expect them to see the best in you. Don’t judge people and expect them to stand by your side. Don’t play with fire and expect to stay perfectly safe.
Life is about giving and taking. You cannot expect to give bad and receive good. You cannot expect to give good and receive bad. Does it happen? Yes, but don’t make that an excuse for you to keep doing what you know is wrong. Don’t blame life for what you do. That is so selfish and ignorant on your behalf. (Not my words)
You are being presented with a choice: evolve or remain the same. If you choose to remain unchanged, you will be presented with the same challenges, the same routine, the same storms, the same situations, until you learn from them, until you love yourself enough to say “no more”, until you choose change.
If you choose to evolve, you will connect with the strength within you, you will explore what lies outside the comfort zone, you will awaken, you will become, you will be what you want. You have everything you need. Choose to evolve.
