Take a risk… Take a chance… Live fiercely! Live authentically!
Some of us are hesitant to be our true Selves because of fear… Fear of ridicule, of hatred, of disapproval, of not fitting in, of being disliked, of being discriminated against…. or even of the opposite – being praised, lauded, or recognized.
This post is not meant to minimize the very real risks of being oneself in cultures and countries where being one’s true Self could have very real and serious implications.
But it is calling to those who have created a very safe and tiny comfort zone of existence in their lives. Start to stretch. Lean in to it. Take a deep breath and then take small steps or actions that reveal your wishes and desires… try something new… get more comfortable taking a risk… recognize that you CAN feel safe revealing your inner thoughts and Self… that you CAN celebrate how special and unique you are.
TIP OF THE DAY
Take ONE small step today to start living more authentically, to start following your dream… and journal your experience.
Take another small step tomorrow… What do you notice? Is it getting easier? Is it at all possible that the reward outweighs the risk? You won’t know until you try.
