Why not do what you Love? Life is too short not too.
Perhaps I'm a dreamer, an idealist.. yet I do believe we can live in a world where we can all do what we love to survive and thrive. In fact I believe it is essential that we do so. We are all so unique, composed of the unique sum totally of our experiences, and thus having something to share with the world that nobody else does. To further contribute to that when we are fuelled by the passion of doing what we love, when we are inspired, and motivated, we accomplish so much more.. and that energy of passion, inspiration, and motivation seems to energetically attract that which we need much more than when we are unmotivated and uninspired.
Personally I’m extremely passionate about self expression and through this self revelation.. Be it through writing, speaking, painting, yoga, dancing, singing, problem solving.. whatever shape or form it takes.. it is such a powerful tool for growth.
For it is through self expression that we grow. Nurturing what’s true to us and dear to our heart.
We empower ourselves
Empower our voices
Our entire BEingness
And through self expression we learn more about ourselves, reveal more of ourselves, and thus expand, grow and evolve.
For when we don’t do this. When we repress ourselves, resist who we are, what’s dear to our souls, we begin to shut down, shrivel up, we disconnect from ourselves and come to this place of dis-ease with ourselves.
Sometimes it seems easier to not express ourselves, to stay small, quiet, not too big, to not stand out.. but over time, that takes its toll.
And though it may seem scary at our first, in the long run, honest self expression is easier. there’s a feeling, of satisfaction, empowerment, self realization that comes with it. even though it may seem scary at the beginning, when we step through. it feels so damn good..
And with time, with practice
We gain experience
It becomes easier
Because we know we can do it
And we know It’s totally worth it.
So what could you do today to express yourself more fully?
It might be in the form of expressing an opinion that disagrees with somebody elses
Or it might be marching in the streets for a cause
Whatever shape or form it takes
Do not underestimate its value
And no, it’s not always easy.
But Be Brave. Be Brave. Be Brave.
What’s the worst that could happen?
And what’s the best that could happen?
And what’s the point in Being you, if you’re not going to BE you?!
