Be you without apology.
Be you without guilt.
Be you, the whole beautiful you!
“Why?” you ask, because the world needs you!!
There is a weird phenomenon that plagues the world today, a belief that we are not good enough as we are. There is an unfair practice of others judging and ridiculing our fellow man when we ALL in fact have things that we could be better at. Please know this for sure: you are perfect just the way you are.
There are things that happen in our life we feel we can’t make it through and feel our imperfections were the cause. But look you are still here, still standing, and now stronger than ever. Each and every one of us has a journey to go through to understand and know who we really are. On this journey we understand how powerful and awesome we each are through our own unique backgrounds and circumstances. Everything about us makes us the perfect and only candidate to live the authentic purpose of who we are meant to be and how to deliver our gift to the world.
Let’s just sit back and think about how awesome the world would be if we all lived up to being our authentic selves. We would have the chance to engage with all types of people through conversation, laugher and love because that fear of non-acceptance would be a thought of the past. When we are able to play 100% from the person that we are and the person we are born to be, we really start to feel good in our skin and able to live our purpose in life!!!
The fact is that sounds very good and all…but believe me I know it’s easier said than done. This is an ideal way to be but it is not easy to unlearn all the things you were taught and begin to learn the things you could know! It is about taking the baby steps in efforts to fulfill that purpose and live from a place of authenticity.
Let’s Try It:
- The baby steps can start with an identifying the little things about you, by making a list of the things that you really enjoy doing, things that really make you happy.
- From the list, strip all the labels that you have learned through your life. Daughter, Son, Sister, Brother, Employee, Volunteer etc. this list of labels describes duties of what you think you should be. This does not get to the core of you, this is about YOU AND ONLY YOU. This is about taking the baby steps of identifying who you are and the things you like. It may seem pretty small, but that is where the big dreams start to unfold, at baby steps.
- Once you have been able to strip yourself of the labels, think of the little things that you notice that make you smile. Is it a song? Is it a smell? Is it a book? Is it a place? Whatever it may be make note of them daily: what makes your heart smile and feel like you could read that book, be in that place, all day without notice of time. That is something that you have identified to be part of the real you!
This, in my opinion, is a lifelong process. When you begin to become aware of the things that you love to do and start replacing the items of lack with items of love you will begin to see your life transform into one that you love.
The world needs you to be you without apology, without guilt, the true authentic you full of love and laughter with so much to give to the world. We are all put here for our own specific purpose and it does not matter what that purpose is, if it makes you feel good and you enjoy it that is what it’s all about!
It’s all about you, being the best you, enjoying you, once you do that it begins to permeate throughout your relationships, your finances, your self-esteem, and your confidence will soon begin to replace fears.
You will begin to start to notice a new person coming forth, a person that no longer apologies for loving their laugher, no longer apologies for their beliefs and values. You will be the person you always have been but allowed fear to stand in the way!! BE YOU! J
I’d love to hear about that special place or activity that makes you feel just YOU. Comment below and share it with us!
