Today's original post has been interrupted to drop a piping hot plate of encouragement at you.
First things first.
Thanks for making me feel like a million bucks over here behind this computer typing away.
I love to write.
I absolutely love it.
& that is one big ass reason why I get the tingles every time I hit publish.
It's like my thing, ya know.
I don't want to ruin that.
Keeping it all to myself keeps it safe.
But that isn't any help to you.
Which is why I hit publish.
Thank you for reaching out.
Thank you for your stories.
Thank you for encouraging me to keep going.
Thank you for appreciating my vulnerability.
At times in our lives we have all experienced the feeling that what we have to offer the world isn't "special".
That our voice isn't as important as somebody else's.
That we aren't qualified to speak about something because we don't have a fancy degree to back it up.
You are wrong.
Your gift is there.
You already have it within you.
You were born with it.
Maybe you don't know what it is yet, but you will.
Trust the process.
Enjoy the journey.
It will come to you when it is your time.
& if you do know what your gift is, hop on that damn train.
Don't listen to the external voices.
The voices of "reason".
The opinions of others.
Sit down, write down your dreams and establish a plan to achieve them.
Don't keep waiting.
Get one day closer to your ultimate happiness.
You deserve it.
