I have spent the last 7 days riding what has been an intense emotional and mental roller coaster. I’ve spent most of these nights waking up in the early hours of the morning and other nights not falling asleep until 2 am.
There were many reasons for it, which I won’t fill your time with, but there was one common thread among these reasons. I was in the process of learning one of the most valuable lessons of my life.
I woke in fits of panic, anxiety and fear. I was unable to work out why or even what the triggers may have been. I did realise one thing though…
…That it was time to start sharing. Sharing who I am. Sharing what I have with the world. It was time for me to put myself out there. No more hiding behind the walls of my mind. I understand this may seem all too woo-woo and perhaps even spiritual, but this realisation has changed everything for me.
I actually became desperate. I didn’t want to feel this way anymore and so I decided to close my eyes, start taking action and overstep the boundaries of my fears.
I was scared sh*tless, but the most amazing thing happened once I took this action. I realised that I have a purpose. A real purpose. A real one! I have something to offer the world. This is different to ‘knowing’ or ‘thinking’ it. I realised it. It became real to me.
It’s when you recognise yourself. When you see that you’re here for a purpose bigger than yourself. When you find that hole in the puzzle that is the same shape as the piece in your hand. When you realise that you belong here because of the amazing contribution you make.
This is why I write this to you…
Recognise you. YOU! See who you are to the world. Look at yourself from where the world sees you. Share yourself with the world. We need it. We need you.
There isn’t enough of you and there probably won’t ever be enough. So make it count. This is what I’ve learnt in the last 7 days. I’m scared… I’m worried… about everything! I have fears, concerns and worries and I can feel those things, which means I’m alive. You’re alive too. Let the world know why. That’s what you are here for.
Please do one thing over the next week… share yourself with the world and feel every bit of it. It’s scary, but anything scary is worth trying.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope you take action. Please share this with your friends to help them share themselves with the world.
