Inspired by a talk we went to from Danielle LaPorte and Gabrielle Berstein and a car ride home full of chatter with my awesome girl Lauren……….
We were all born to be love and to be joy. We are here to be ourselves and whoever we are is exactly who we are meant to be.
It is so easy to get caught up in who other people want us to be or who we have been raised to be, or who we think we should be but deep down there is a trueness of who we really are.
I am reminded who I am every time I hang with my friends and we laugh. We laugh hard and we laugh a lot. Or with my family when we are being silly or sharing our strange sense of humor. I am not trying to be something I’m not or look like someone else, I am just me. You know the feeling, when you take a deep breath and it all feels right. It is pure contentment, santosha. I want to wake up everyday and have that feeling and go out into the world just being more of me and I also want that from everyone around me. I want to know you, the real you. The world needs you and if you show up and be true to yourself you give permission for everyone else to do the same. Life is too short to not know you, so be you and be as much of you as you can. You are the one that I want to meet. Just you as you are meant to be.
