I Think the World is Ready for YOU!

There are two things that I know and one is that we are here on earth to be who we are in all of our Glory. In fact, we are meant to excel at being who we are. Our uniqueness and individuality is supposed to be the way of it.

Why then do we dim down or hide?

And most often guess who we are really hiding from?

Ourselves!!!! We often keep ourselves hidden away, afraid to let the ‘real’ us out for fear that we are not adequate, or that people might see the ‘real’ us. HA HA HA. We are missing the very point!

As another quote goes:

โ€œWhen you realize how perfect everything is, you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky.โ€

I think the world is ready for ‘us’. I think the world is ready for ‘me’ and I think the world is ready for ‘YOU” my friend.

In fact, I think the world needs us right now to really show up to the plate and be who we are meant to be. If not now, when?

The second thing I know to be true, is that change is a constant. Boy, don’t we know that these days? ๐Ÿ™‚

So that brings me back around to how we view change, or how we adjust and maneuver changes in our lives. For example, we can dig our feet into the ground and stamp our feet or we can dance with change like the waves dance in the ocean… to and fro… and adjusting as we go.

Here is an example of what I mean, just on a smaller scale. It is 5:57 am and I have been awake since about 3 am. I went to bed earlier than I normally do and woke up and couldn’t go back to sleep. But instead of fighting it and stressing about it, I am just enJOYing the time.

I watched a little Netflix, listened to a mediation and when I was still awake I thought I would get up and write. So here I am. Writing and in all my Glory being me expressing myself as a part of the Universe in motion and it feels GOOD. It feels really GOOD my friends because I am being ‘me’ and I am not fighting or arguing with ‘what is’ aka that I cannot sleep.

I am going with the rhythm of what is and I am not in resistance. And when we are not in resistance we are not in pain. ๐Ÿ™‚ Now that is a peaceful and JOYous place to be.

I hope whenever you are reading this that you be sure to make it an AMAZING day and that YOU, my friend, get your YOU dance on today and let the ‘REAL’ you out to play on this GLORIOUS day!

Oh and if you are reading this in the early am… Good Morning Beautiful! ๐Ÿ™‚

Wear That Silly Hat Dammit!

Have you ever worn a silly hat?

I ran across this Facebook memory from Oct. 1, 2013, and I must admit it made me cry for a number of reasons. It is about my daughter who was 7 at the time…. but really it’s all about life.

Here was the post from 2013:

So this morning Sivanna and I were cuddling in bed and talking about how one of her teachers told her it was disrespectful to wear her pink hat that she had so excitedly prepared for her outfit for picture day, but that she was ok with it. And then we started talking about what I was doing today. I explained that I was giving a talk to people on how to do more things that make them happy like wearing hats that they like or silly hats, or spending more time in nature, etc. Then I say “Well it’s time to get up” and she says “MOM you just said we should do what makes us happy and I want more cuddles!” Needless to say, we had more cuddles.

I thought this was worth sharing here for a few reasons.

I often think that at the end of our lives we are going to wish that we had lightened up more, wore those silly hats, tried painting pictures, wrote that book, or tried that Thai recipe. ๐Ÿ™‚

Whatever, I bet we will wish that we did more of those things that we want to do or try silly or not.

I also think we will wish that we didn’t follow so many made-up rules and let go of our fears to express our true and authentic self. This post reminded me of how people can get thwarted in life when they just want to express themselves. We really are just spiritual beings having a human experience and we should be free to be who we want to be.

So let’s not wait ๐Ÿ™‚ Let’s try things, let’s explore, let’s wear silly hats, a get a tattoo if we want. ๐Ÿ™‚

And as for the cuddles, wow, just wow, that one is making me cry right now. Sure brings it all home doesn’t it?

Have a great day everyone!
