Shine a light on the REAL you

Shine a light on the REAL you

- Tracey Hancock

When we were born, we brimmed with love and embraced our uniqueness. We expressed our emotions long before we spoke, and explored the world around us with wonder and curiosity.

And then, life happened.

Childhood experiences - the things people said and did - influenced and shaped what we thought we should think, do and say. We learnt that it was best to push aside our own thoughts, feelings and dreams so that we could please others or at least avoid being yelled at or punished. 

As we grow, we change, not just physical changes, we change who we are to fit in, to be loved, to keep the peace, to be a good girl or boy. But that comes with a hefty price ... you don't stand in the truth of who you are, and you don't live, work and play in the way you know you can.

The memories from your childhood can linger on throughout your life, influencing who you are and what you do, but it doesn't have to be like that.

Right here and now acknowledge yourself, you are beautiful and magnificent. I think we all need to remind ourselves of that from time-to-time. Just for a moment now, imagine you are the only person whose opinion of you matters. Imagine that. It's not about what anyone else thinks, says or does, it's what you think that counts the most. 

Know, accept and approve of yourself.
Stand confidently in your truth.
Love yourself for who you are now. Always.

Make the choices you need to make.
Choices that serve you well.
Not the choices you think you should make or that you're expected to make.

You know you best.
You know what's right for you.
You know your strengths.
And you know your dreams.

Stop playing small.
Start living life as you know you can.
Shine a light on your dreams now.
It's time for you to live well.

You can be YOU; there's no one better qualified for it.
You know you can make your dreams REAL.
Believe it now.
Believe in you now.

Know someone, someone you love and care for, who needs to hear this message too? Please share.
