I remember my brother-in-law casually pondering with his outside voice as to how young is old enough to be enrolled in the school of hard knocks.
Great question …
When is the best time to learn you don’t win all the time?
Or everything you do doesn’t deserve praise and applause?
And nobody wants to hear about all your achievements?
What we absorb in childhood has long lasting effects into decades to come.
The stories of others become our own.
Intentions behind knockdowns as bad or good are irrelevant. You are here now.
But you don’t want to anymore.
Does wrong become right and right becomes wrong?
Can old habits change after all this time?
You wouldn’t be asking otherwise.
A call from the heart changes everything. You will not be denied.
We are speaking of when, not if.
Expressing your true self is not boasting or bragging.
You were, and are, meant to be you.
The whole you and nothing but you.
As is everybody else.
There is no reason to lessen yourself of the greatness you hold within.
You are the only one who can bring you to the table with all your gifts.
Being full of yourself is required now to fulfill the call.
There is no separation between who you are and what you are here to do.
Holding back and lessening yourself is humility from the mind.
Stepping up, shining brightly and moving vulnerably into the world is humility from the heart.
