Be the best version of you……..we all have something that we can offer to our world…..it’s called love. When we are young we are taught to be a helper and to support those around us with love, compassion, and support. As we grow older, we begin to pick and choose who gets the best of us and who doesn’t. We give in to the pressure of the world and we find ourselves judging the choices and actions of those around us. We are made bolder by the internet and the fact that we can’t see those that we judge. We are constantly in pursuit of something out there. Something that will complete our lives.
When in fact, just like the story of Dorothy in the Wizard of OZ ……we have always had the power to find our way home. Home to those earlier versions of ourselves….where we took great care in what we said and how we said it. When we showed up in the world with what we had….and it was enough. It still is. You are enough. You and all that makes you unique in this world, are enough. Your critics do not count, their words will fade, but you won’t. You will boldly step out into each new day and you will remember all the gifts that you bring to life. You will bring them with you everywhere you go. You will light the way when someone finds themselves in darkness. You will hold the door open when another door has closed. All that you are, is just what the world needs now…….you are always enough.
Cheryl Strayed said “Most things will be okay eventually, but not everything will be. Sometimes you’ll put up a good fight and lose. Sometimes you’ll hold on really hard and realize there is no choice but to let go. Acceptance is a small, quiet room. So stop asking yourself what you want, what you desire, what interests you. Ask yourself instead. What has been given to me? Ask….What do I have to give back. Then give it.”
