For many years, I considered myself insignificant and nearly invisible.
Yes, I knew I smart, but that didn't seem to make a difference. My brother was a creative genius and my sister had a very special way of connecting with people. They both got noticed (in my opinion).
I was the organizer and the peace-maker of the family. And I turned my creativity to solo activities, like cross-stitch, crocheting, painting, and sewing.
I've always been an introvert so it was easy for everyone to overlook me. I didn't cause a scene, I didn't make trouble, and I didn't rock the boat. Being an introvert helped me hide my feelings of inferiority, and yet, this very same behavior was also creating the thing I feared most: pushing people away.
I longed to fit in, have friends, be popular, and to be part of a group; I longed to be accepted. However, I always felt like I had to hide my true self because no one would want or like the 'real me.' You know, the 'real me' that thought there was something wrong with me and that I wasn't good enough.
In fact, I got so good at hiding the 'real me' that I lost touch with my own wants, needs, desires, and goals. I lost touch with my own brand of brilliance. I lost touch with my power.
Over time, I began the process of reclaiming myself and came to accept and value my worth as a teacher, a speaker, a way-shower, a visionary, and a creative person. These are valuable assets I bring to the planet.
What I bring is just as important and valuable as my brother's brilliance and my sister's magnetic appeal.
Do you recognize the significant contribution you bring to the planet? Or do you discount your talents and skills because they come so easy to you?
Are you using your fabulous assets to create a life you love or are you hiding out? Are you playing by someone else's rules on how you should look, what you should do, where you should go, and how you should behave?
Are you ready to let the 'real you' out and live life on your own terms? Is there something you'd like to create, change, or increase? Maybe your self-image, your business, your prosperity, or your abundance?
You are not alone.
I had to rediscover the 'real me' on my own. My way was the hard way because I didn't have any mentors and I was afraid to reach out. You don't have to do it the hard way.
I am here to help you. If you'd like guidance to help discover, awaken, and appreciate your own brand of brilliance, I am here to for you. Together we will bring about results greater than you can imagine.
