I shared this quote by Viola Davis a couple of years ago: "You can't be hesitant about who you are." At the time I was VERY sure about who I was and so I shared it confidently!
The last couple years have kicked me repeatedly in the teeth, head and heart. Nothing like crisis stacked on crisis stacked on more crisis to get your attention. My life looks vastly different now. Most of the 'shiny' things that we focus on in life are either gone or close to it and for a while I became very, very unsure and hesitant about who I am. I live a significantly more stripped down life and I feel tonnes lighter! But here’s the thing, those shiny things keep us distracted from the deeper truth of who you are and that is, you will still be you with or without it.
If you lost everything that is attached to the labels you carry, wife, husband, mother, father, daughter, son, brother, sister, friend, employee, business owner, home owner etc. you will still be you, not the who that you think you are, but the beautiful soul that is you. You are a miracle of life! You are magnificent and uniquely made! There is no need to be hesitant, because the deeper divine truth of who you are will never fade. You may have forgotten, but it’s still there and it’s time to stop hiding and remember it. Embrace it and go share it with the world!
