What if I told you that you could have it all just by being yourself?
Would you believe me?
In our society we are constantly being told to change. We are born beautifully perfect humans with wonderfully beating hearts, intricate minds within vessels for creation.
Immediately after birth we are exposed to messages aiming to change us. Whether they be from something so innocently pure like a parent sending us to a specific school for a “better education” or dressing you a certain way.
And as we age, we begin to take note of what is “accepted” and what is “rejected” by society. Our parents oftentimes will share stories about how we used to play soccer but “outgrew it,” or used to love the color pink but changed our preferences.
This “change in preference” we go through a multitude of times each lifetime comes from observing how society views a certain action, style or personality; and adopting the ones which seem “acceptable” to be our own.
The result? For some, unhappiness, confusion and emptiness. Feeling like you don’t know who you are, feeling lost, feeling like no one understands you, feeling like you don’t fit in.
In a society which is constantly trying to change you — selling you diet products promising you’ll feel better, more whole if you lose weight; selling you stimulants and energy drinks promising you’ll be more productive and make more money to spend on those diet products, clothing or the latest tech products; selling you one of the most beautiful, human experiences imaginable — a loving relationship or partnership — via a smartphone app charging you $29.99 a month to find your soulmate — I challenge you to just be yourself.
YOU are so beautiful, so special and so unique. As YOU. Right when you wake up, fresh out of the shower, makeupless, barefoot in your kitchen making pancakes, singing in the car to your favorite songs, hugging your loved ones, giggling with the baby in the cart next to you at the supermarket, smelling flowers on the street, crying your heart out when you feel like it’s been shattered into pieces then picking those pieces back up again, running as fast as you can until your legs give up, reading your favorite book, skinny dipping in the moonlight with your best friends, failing not once, but twice, and again, and another time; succeeding not once, but twice, and again, and another time.
You can have it ALL just by being yourself. Actually, you already have it all. Just look in the mirror, look around you at all of the abundance which is yours and smile big and bright knowing that you are whole as you are, and that there is so much more to life than spending it trying to change yourself.
