In today’s society it becomes easy to doubt who we are…where we are on this path of life…questioning if and where we belong. Striving to basically understand why we have been given the life we are living, including why we are granted specific privileges and opportunities while others are not. Or why others may have more than we have. Thinking this person has it easier than I do, or that person has had such a hard life, full of struggles. It becomes really easy to compare our lives to others in this way.
So, I ask myself what would happen if I just completely owned and accepted exactly who I am, what I’ve been given, and what I am doing, right here, right now? Sounds really easy, when reading, doesn’t it? But, deep down, it’s harder to accept.
No two people are the same and no two life paths are the same. We are all born into completely different circumstances, and all experience life in different ways. Unique in our own way…and we all were given our lives and our place for a reason. Given our paths to move forward on. Our strengths to help strengthen others. Our weaknesses to teach us to always remain humble. And our struggles to learn from. It’s our purpose in life.
We become less empowered when we doubt ourselves. Feeling inadequate, as if we’re not enough, will tear away at our souls…at our being. But, when you find yourself doing this, remind yourself that we don’t need to have it all figured out. Stand up to yourself. Own who you are. Be compassionate to yourself and to others. But more importantly, always love yourself and embrace this wonderful, crazy, happy, sometimes difficult and constantly changing journey! Trust and accept YOUR path, and remember, it’ll always lead you to Sunshine if you allow it!!
