I have been hiding. No new blogs for weeks, not calling friends, little posting on groups or boards. I could tell a very familiar story about being busy (which I have been, but not all the time). I could write about being overwhelmed, or scattered. I could go on about all the demands on my time, the various responsibilities in different areas of my life, which are fact and we all have them. And then there is the heat. It has been godawful in Baltimore and I am sure many other areas of the country. I sweat gallons and feel the effects of the heat. There are so many lovely excuses.
The honest to God truth is that I have been scared to take the next steps. I know what I want to do, what I think I am here on the planet to do and I am scared to start. I have been living it in my family and my small circle of friends. The next step is bigger, showing myself for all to see.
So this entry is the next step. It does take courage to be who you truly are.
What is it that you are here to do? Why are YOU HERE NOW? What is it that only you can give the world? How many people do you know that live each day fully present to bringing their gift forward for the good of all? Can you take a moment to imagine what this world would look like if WE ALL lived our gifts, living as the unique expression of the divine we truly are?
What can you do today to step, if only for a moment, into your magnificence? How can you share your gift with the world today? If you found the courage to be who you truly are and if we all did the same, what a ride this would be.
I’ll show you me even if you aren’t ready to show me you.
Here’s to shining our lights!
