My Spirit knows.
Dear Reader, Like you, I'm on a journey of listening to my heart more, finding & focussing on what's truly important to me and my family, and letting go of the fluff and sticky crap that weighs me down. These are the lessons I'm learning every day. I hope you can relate. Love Brookh
The truth is all all around us. We have only to see it, to live it.
In our online VIP community, a friend shared her superpowers as she introduced herself to our fellow members. It reminded me of a little girl I saw in Chicago on a girls trip.
I couldn't take my eyes off this happy child as she twirled and danced around in her pink cape in the middle of a busy amusement park. I asked her parents if I could take a photo to capture her free spirit ... I wonder, WHAT is MY superhero skill?
Living in a world filled with such high expectations and the overwhelming sense that we must do everything perfectly leaves us very little room to honor our unique gifts.
I grew up believing my gifts were a hinderance because I had misinterpreted the reactions of the elders around me. Doing their best, they were sometimes harsh in their words and bitter in their treatment of me, not realizing the damage that was happening. I was an inquisitive, intelligent young girl who could feel the tension in the people around me.
For many years I believed that I was faulty. No one liked me, not my parents, not my peers. Carrying that heavy burden I walked around in the world feeling small, unnecessary and unloved. I was a minuscule version of my true self and kept on shrinking.
In my heart I believed that I was not only supposed to act less like ME, but I that I should also act more like everyone else.
I forced my soul to sleep in an attempt to be accepted.
But I never was.
Trying to appease the people around me made me unrecognizable because I was not being authentic.
I didn’t know what that meant. But I do now.
Eventually I gave up trying for anything. I always failed. I never quite measured up even though my accomplishments were many, I abandoned feeling their value. It was never enough.
As I admired the fanciful spins of that little girl in Chicago, my heart began to fill with joy that I was new to connect with. She sparked something inside of me that was waiting to be recognize and I began to further my acceptance of that freedom of being me.
Ask yourself this question and join us if you want more interaction with joy filled women who are trying their best every day, and (mostly ;-) ) succeeding. The best is yet to come.
1. What are my gifts? (What are you good at)?
It’s perfectly okay if, “I don't know …” The question is; how can you stand firm on the ground and grow into your FINE self (or let others in on how to treat you) without knowing some basics about yourself?
This is what we do in the Brookh & Deanne Show VIP Lounge. Join us.
Life is a gift.
