WOW…… I saw this sign in an Op Shop window yesterday, and it really jumped out at me.
I don’t know about you, but if I had heard this message in my teens and 20’s and REALLY took it on board I think my life would have been a whole lot different now.
I probably wouldn’t have wasted years trying to ‘figure it out’, wondering why I felt that I didn’t fit in, what’s wrong with me, why am I so different to everyone else – why aren’t I blonde, blue eyed, 5′ 6″, popular at school, good at sport. Why can’t I find and stick to one job that I can excel in and climb the corporate ladder like everyone else……etc etc.
Well sista, if you feel the same way, it’s time to embrace that we were all born with unique individual gifts and blessings, and that we’re special in our own way.
And that it’s NEVER to late to discover those special talents that you have, and that only YOU can express them in the way that you do. So it’s time to own who you are, and BE YOU 100% in every moment of the day.
And if at 1st you’re so conditioned with society, peer pressure, the media, family, friends and work colleagues, that you don’t know or have forgotten WHO you are. Then start doing the things that you love, the things that give you joy, and let that expand into other areas of your life.
Start to be grateful of EVERYTHING in your life, even the parts that initially give you sadness and grief, because there truly is a silver lining in every cloud if we CHOOSE to look for it.
So today and everyday for the rest of your life BE YOU, be grateful for who you are, as you were born to stand out as YOU !!!!
Wish It … Dream It … Do It!
