Imagine if you spent less energy on what you do not like about yourself and feeling envious of others and put your full energy into discovering what makes you unique and so wonderful. We have been well-trained to think the worst about everything it seems, but especially ourselves. Is it any wonder given the continual advertising programming taking place on television?
All the ads are giving us the subtle and sometimes not so subtle messages that we are not good enough. Pharmaceutical drugs parade across the tv screen telling us we are depressed and need help, we are too fat and need to lose weight, our houses smell and we smell , we need to change our hair color, we need plastic surgery, our health is failing and we need more drugs of all kinds because that is how bad off we are. I mean it is just ridiculous. We are not the things that advertisers are pounding into our heads.
Each and every person born is unique and special just as they are. We all have gifts to share with others, we just need to pay attention more closely and discover them. We have big hearts and think nothing of reaching out to help others. I go online and research for the small organizations in the local area towns needing help and I give to them. We are smart and intelligent beings with great creativity within and we need to recognize this and act upon our gifts.
Our greatest gift we must share with others is our love. Imagine a world where everybody was sharing their love with those around them. No violence and hatred, no war and aggression, no need to dominate. It would be so wonderful, and we are not far away from that. It will take the people allowing their true selves to unfold before them and trusting in that new person.
We have always been all possibilities; we just have not realized it. It is time to love and appreciate being ourselves just as we are, we are unique, there is no other being just like us. That little twist of uniqueness is our gift, it is what we offer in our lives to others and who it says we are. Look deeply within and discover the gift you can share with the world. Learn to love who you are, for you are the same person for eternity. I choose to be friends with and love that person residing within my shell, don’t you?
Now that the old world is unraveling leaving gaping holes where the old has been destroyed, these are places where we step in and leave our mark. This is where we begin erecting the new world that speaks to who we truly are. I spent half of my life running away from myself, feeling disappointed in who I thought I was because I did not seem to fit in. I understand now why I could never fit in. I knew from an early age that how we were all living our lives was a lie. I could not partake in that lie.
As the old-world fades away and the new world blossoms forth, I fit in! I know why I am here; I know who I am finally and most importantly I can appreciate who I am and love that person. It was not me who was off, it was the world!
Blessings to us all,
