you’re never less

 

How often do you tense up or cringe at the memory or anticipation of making a “mistake” or getting it “wrong”? That’s nothing more than your fear-based ego perpetuating the myth that your safety and worthiness lay exclusively within perfectionism.

Your soul knows better than that. Your authentic self understands that nothing meaningful is born, learned, adventured, grown or changed without taking risks, wandering outside the lines, and on occasion, making a gigantic mess.

There’s no value in feeding anxiety about the doom triggered by alleged shortcomings, missteps or failures. Saddle up to those fears—past, present or future—with a generous serving of curiosity instead.

Reflect on these stories not to shame or alienate yourself, but rather as a means to learn about yourself, others and life. Find inspiration, regardless of outcomes, to continually keep your ego in check and embolden your soul.

Be responsible for your choices and compassionate in your next steps, most importantly with and towards yourself.

You are forever and always, infinitely loved and worthy.

YOU are the light

The beasts you waste your life hiding from are only figments of your imagination.

You are the master and creator of who you get to be, how big you allow yourself to dream, what limits you decide to cater to, and what beliefs you do or do not shrink in front of. 

Any discomfort you must face to liberate yourself is worth your courage and determination a million times over.

The potential of your being is limitless and the sooner you face the things that feel unbearable and boldly walk through the dark jungles that haunt your mind, you’ll discover these fears are all simply illusions of your ego.  Your soul will laugh and heave a giant exhale at the relief and wonder of what truly is relative to what you used to believe.
