One important lesson I’ve leant in life is that the best gift I can give the world (and myself) is to be my true authentic self. As we go through life I’ve realized the one thing that gets attacked more than anything is our character, the very core of who we are. People will try by all means to dim your light. You’ll be told you are not enough, you are too much, you are controversial (lol), you don’t matter etc. The truth is… that’s all lies. You are more than enough. You may not fully grasp that yet, but you are more than enough.
The one who created you says so. And His word trumps everything. He created you, therefore He knows fully well what gifts and talents He invested in you. All you need to do every time you feel your little light being dimmed is to keep drawing back to the light source so you can go ablaze again. It doesn’t matter how much darkness you may currently be engulfed in…. remember lights shine the brightest during the dark.
“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.” Psalm 139: 14
So go on, stop apologizing for being who you are. Rock YOU to the max and remember that when you do that, you free others to be their best authentic versions too. The same way a tiny spark can be all you need to start a forest fire….
“By being yourself you put something beautiful into the world that was not there before.” Anon
