I Believe In YOU!
Sometimes we get a little down and discouraged when we look at our lives’ and we barely recognize the person that we see in the mirror. Somewhere along our journey we gave away pieces of who we used to be; whether it is because we lost track of our dreams or stopped doing the things that we loved doing. Even on the noblest pathways, it is human nature to put others needs ahead of our own. Don’t get me wrong, serving others is a true value, however, not at the sacrifice of ourselves.
Now before you click to the next blog, please indulge me for a moment. I have said it hundreds and hundreds of times, the advice that the airline gives you before every flight is priceless. “Put the oxygen on yourself before you help those you are traveling with.” This is such simple wisdom that so easily gets over looked and placed on the bottom of our list…that is… if it even makes our personal list of importance to begin with. So if you are not sure what I mean, I will spell it out. If you don’t take care of your own needs, your own wellbeing and health… YOU will not be around to take care of the other people in your life that you care about.
Sometimes when truths come to us in its purest form, the human side of has to complicate it, in order to feel important. So, we try to intellectualize and pad the simplistic wisdom before we even try and attempt to apply it. If it seems to easy, it can’t be right; is the mind chatter that we have rolling around our head.
So, what would YOU do if you didn’t know YOU couldn’t? Or, what would YOU start doing again that YOU have given up either consciously or unconsciously? Take some time to reflect on the things that you once loved doing because they gave you so much pure joy. Even if you were not that polished at it. If at one time…YOU loved it or even if there is something that YOU would like to try, but have placed F.E.A.R. (False Evidence Appearing Real) in the way …I encourage YOU to DO it!
I know beyond knowing that YOU Can! YOU can step out of your own way and start growing the joy inside YOU once again. In my heart of hearts I know that you Can step into YOUr full potential. I believe in you like I believe in me. Set yourself free from the ties that bind you and step into the Greatness that YOU are! Believe in YOU …as YOU are worth it!
Wishing YOU a day filled with Green Lights & Learning!
