Life is a precious gift and you are given the chance to experience it firsthand. There are no limits to what you can do and be. All limitations are within your mind. You call the shots.
“My life is my message” – Gandhi
You are not the world you grew up in
We are all born into a society which is shaped by a certain set of rules. We grow up either believing in those rules or feeling restricted by them. But you are not limited by anything. You are free. The rules will always exist and how you’re going to feel about them is completely up to you. You choose whether you are going to conform to the world around you or stay true to yourself.
Don’t try to fit any label, be the brand!
Maybe you are one of the few blessed ones. Maybe your inner being is in line with the world around you. If you feel good living life within the set rules don’t look for being different. You are lucky that you don’t have to go against the stream to be true to yourself. Celebrate your blessing! The point is not to be different or eccentric, but to feel good in your own skin and to live a life tailored to your likings. We are all ordinary. We are all extraordinary. Don’t try to change who you are – be yourself!
Don’t wait for anybody’s approval
We are here on this Earth for a limited amount of time. Don’t waste it trying to get approval from anybody. Only you know how it feels to be you and only you are living this life here and now. Be brave and dare to go ahead trusting your feelings and instincts. Follow your intuition, that gut feeling telling you when you are right or wrong straight out. Follow your path. Nobody has to like you, but yourself.
When you look in the mirror don’t look for reassurance, look for revelation. Don’t look at yourself but look for yourself. Let go of who you think you are, of all the fear-based thinking, of conditioning and judgment. Discover, explore, listen and observe.
Maybe you’ll find out that you don’t like people, or that you are responsible instead of believing you are the opposite. Maybe I am not all smiles and patience as I thought I was, or maybe I am a warm and kind person I never believed I was. You don’t have to be anything, you just have to be yourself.
Share your colors with the world
Don’t compare yourself to others. You are incomparable to anybody else in the universe Figure out the unique gift universe gave you and put it to use. It has nothing to do with what will you do in life but with how you will do it. Color everything you do with your own colors. If you are wild, give the world your wildness. If you are kind, show your kindness. That is what you are here to do. You don’t have to find a cure for cancer or be the next Tesla, your greatest contribution to this planet is YOU. Being yourself, you will inspire others to do the same and then, cures or inventions will be made possible.
