I have a secret. A secret that I’m willing to share if you’re willing to hear it. One that I’m willing to help you with if you’re willing to try. This tidbit of information could really set you free. It can finally let you off the hook of this lifelong search of yours. I’d dare to say that it’s the SECRET TO LIFE! Gasp! I know, I know. That’s a large claim here, but I’m pretty confident in my findings.
However, before I share this with you, let me start this relationship off with you on honesty and not a white lie. I’m not the only one who knows this secret. Actually, you probably know it too, but are either too afraid or would rather just not have to do the work. But that’s where the biggest misconception lies. There is no work involved. There is nothing to be afraid of. You see, you carry this around with you every single day of your life and it doesn’t require much of anything, but maybe a dash of self-acceptance, a splash of self-worth, and a dollop or two of courage. This secret lies deep within you and every single one of us have it. Every single one of us is given this at birth. Unfortunately, we often allow the world to distract us. We allow circumstances and people to get in the way of this truth and as the years go by, we forget about it completely. We learn to drown it out. We learn to turn the switch down just a little so nobody can notice it. We learn to stay quiet when we want to speak up. We learn to put it aside because we’re afraid we can’t do whatever it is that it’s asking us. We learn to stand in the shadows hoping nobody notices it because then we’d have to show up for life.
Okay, so what is this “thing” I speak of? It’s YOU. It’s your own unique way of BEing. It’s your gift that you have been given that nobody else has or will ever have. It’s YOUR light that nobody will ever shine like you or come close to shining like you. Here’s the kicker! You ready?? You don’t have to compete with anyone for it! You don’t have to stand on the sidelines because you’re afraid you won’t match up or be good enough or will fail. You see, you can’t fail at being YOU! All you have to do is show up. All you have to do is look deeply at yourself, see you, accept you, and then choose to wake up each day and BE YOU! It’s the greatest gift you have ever been given and it’s the greatest thing you will ever do! You don’t have to go and end world hunger or cure cancer (unless that is your gift) to have value, worth, and light! You already shine. You already have worth. You already are valuable simply because you’re here. Your makeup is only you. It’s YOUR DNA. Without YOU, this planet would be slightly different. Everything you’ve ever done and everyone you’ve ever met would slightly be altered because you’ve already altered it with YOUR presence. You’ve already said something or done something that has shifted a situation, a moment, a person’s thoughts. You already have made an impact in this Universe. You already are a game changer!
Alright, so now that I’ve imparted this “secret” with you, what will you do with it? Will you embrace this uniqueness that is all yours and use it to do even better? Will you stop judging and comparing yourself to others because the truth is, you never will measure up to who they are. You’re not supposed to! They are them and you are YOU and as Dr. Seuss said, “There is no one alive that is Youer than You.”
How awesome is that?!
Be YOU in all of your magnificence!
Don’t waste another single, solitary moment of your life searching for something or someone that will make you feel valuable or worthy!
You see, you always have been.
From the very moment you were born.
I’d love to know what you would do if you had absolutely no hesitation, no fear, and knew that you could do anything? Leave your comments below in the comment section. Can’t wait to read it!
