Underneath the fog of societal pressures calling you to work harder, to be more, to beat yourself into perfection…
You must remember.
You are already enough. Yes, as you are right now. Yeah, I know it’s easy to forget this, since there’s always someone trying to convince you otherwise, but check in with that big “S” Self inside of you who knows this to be true. No need to believe me, ask Her.
God (The Universe, whatever you call it) is conspiring in your favor. Destroy the myth that we’re all alone in this world. God/the Universe wants to help you remember your awesome, perfect nature. Why? Because no one else can replicate your voice and you have something to say that we all need to hear.
Your task is to re-discover your true self.
Not the self that your mom gave you when you were six. Honor her experience but put it back on the shelf; that was her truth. Go ahead and let go of the one the school bully tried to force on you in high school too. You can just throw that one away. And, if you need to, throw away this blog post. You have my permission.
But whatever you do, re-discover who you are. How do you like to spend your time? What motivates you to get up early in the morning and work your ass off late into the evening? What makes you laugh and laugh and laugh? What makes you feel like you’re home?
The seeds for the uncontainable, passion-filled, life you’re meant to live are waiting there. Deep inside your inspiring, perfect Self.
