If your vision for your life is something you just can’t shake, there’s one thing I know: You’ve got what it takes to bring it to fruition.
Let me temper that statement with a little special sauce.
I’ll keep it personal, but if the stiletto fits…
Some of my grand visions for me were planted in some rich soil called EGO. This manure effectively fertilized the seed for these visions: INSECURITY.
I needed to be a successful, amazing, superior WHATEVER because on the inside I felt like a worthless, meaningless, nothing.
Sheesh! What a roller coaster ride of inflated-sense-o-self and inferiority!
Thank you very much, I no longer ride those waves of insecurity. They sometimes beckon me with a free ticket to ride, but I’ve learned to say “been there, done that, gave it up for Lent.”
When you check your ego at the door and begin to love on yourself, your TRUE vision for you can emerge…and it is never unattainable, because LOVE never fails.
You were born for this.
Every gift, talent, resource, connection – you’ve got it. And if it hasn’t manifested yet, it’s going to show up just when you need it.
What’s this “I don’t know what my gift is…” business? Ha!
Your gift is the thing that lights you up and lights up everyone it touches.
And when it comes to VISION, yours is wrapped up in a bow made of your gifts.
For some practical VISION advice and the new WOW – here you go!:
We call this the WOW – the Word of the Week, but the feeling I got when I pulled that card was truly “WOW…”
I began talking about the sense of inferiority and how it can abort our visions for a happy and a good life. To follow that up with the word HEALING and a sense that so many of you are holding yourselves hostage to the past…well, WOW.
Please forgive yourself.
Treat yourself as kindly as you do others.
Let those deep places heal so you can get about the business of living and loving and using your gifts. The more you do, the more healed you’ll feel.
Love to you as you consider these things today – and thank you for giving me a place to use my own gifts.
