In this current climate of people pushing you to not miss out, encouraging you to take every opportunity, to be known/recognised for something great, is it ever enough to just be You?
We all have differing paths of learning. Along these paths we meet people who assist us from all varying angles i.e. with kindness as well as harsh criticism, and situations which almost reflect ancient 'rite of passage' rituals, that being we can find ourselves (symbolically) at the bottom of a deep dark pit, cold, alone and hungry for light and connections.
But it is from these people and situations, where we are stripped, metaphorically, to our bare core, where ego is embarrassed, humiliated, fearful, empty and hopeless, that we can arise and awaken to a new perception of choices and living. This is not always possible or recommended for every person to do alone.
The boundaries society are so keen to provide for us, help us to both fit in, comprehending herd mentality as well as to hear the resonation of our tribe's calls. Yin-Yang is everywhere.
Once we begin connecting with our tribe's vibrational level, we grow in confidence of self and how we interact with others. Knowing ourselves today, knowing we are loved, accepted, heard, gives us the courage to step outside the boundary to our next 'growth chapter'.
In short, on our journey of life learning, we are really just learning the best way for us to perceive the world.
So how does this encourage us to just be? Finding and Practising Gratitude and Acceptance.
During every up and every down of your day, find the place that being you for that moment is enough. And through this practise, come to an authentic place of peace and a love of being enough, the courage to be You!
This with thanks from Madisyn Taylor:
Our intellects, our hearts, and our souls are constantly being tested by the universe. Life will create new challenges for you to face each time you prove yourself capable of overcoming the challenges of the past. What you deem difficult will always differ from that which others deem difficult. The tests you will be given will be as unique as you are. If you focus on doing the best you can and making use of the blessings you have been granted, the outcome of your efforts will be a joyous reflection of your personal dedication.
Blessings on Your Journey.
