The world will open up to you, when you open up to it. It takes courage to speak from the heart. It takes strength to share your story. But it is needed in this world. Yes, it is! What you have to say matters. The stories you hold, the love you share, the way you show up ... all of it matters.
It has taken me time to learn these lessons. A lot more time than I care to admit. I can put pen to paper easily. But ask me to speak these words and I struggle. Afraid of what others will think if I open my heart. Afraid of judgment. Afraid of not being understood.
Yet I have recently stood in the face of fear. Showing up exactly as I am. And I was embraced and held. I was seen. I brought something to the table and showed up so much stronger than I ever thought I was. I never thought I was the one brining something to the table, but I am. And you are to!
You, exactly as you are is a gift to this world. What you share with those around you is important. You must continue to show up. You bring a unique perspective. When you share your stories you encourage others to share as well. Do not be fearful of showing others who you are. It is necessary and so very needed.
I have struggled for far to long with showing up in this world. Thinking I was meant to be invisible. But no one is ever meant to not be seen. Know this and feel it deeply inside you. I see now how my thoughts, feelings, and opinions matter. I see how I have a way of teaching others just by being me. This my friends, is powerful. When we understand that our presence alone effects those around us we show up in the world with much more intention. We do not take for granted the time we have and we respect the energy we give out.
When you walk into a room you bring a certain energy with you. Others feel this and it effect their energy as well. What do you want others to feel from you? How do you want to show up?
I encourage you to examine the way you show up in the world. To notice the energy you carry with you when you enter your home or office. See how this energy effects those around you. Be conscious of the strength your energy holds. See how you can shift it into a positive feeling.
