"The two most important days of your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why." (Mark Twain)
I was thinking about what kind of message I wanted to share with my lovely Monday Morning Lovin' Subscribers and then I came across this quote in an old journal of mine I was flipping through and it hit me. I love this quote because it reminds me that we ALL have an individual mission and purpose here on Earth and the journey towards figuring that out is the MOST EXCITING PROCESS EVER!! (Sometimes wildly frustrating, but that's just part of the ebb and flow.) So today's Monday Morning Lovin' Message is brought to you courtesy of Marie's (brand new) journal entry from this morning: - - - "Be Your Own Hero" How often do we wait for validation from others to pursue what we want?
We are constantly seeking approval, guidance and acceptance from our families, peers, co-workers, strangers even. What would happen if you just looked internally for a few moments? If you sat quietly with yourself and really dove into what your SOUL is calling you to do?
Not what you THINK others want you to do or be. You were NOT put on this earth to lead a mediocre existence and conform to others' ideas of living based on fear.
You WERE made to follow your heart. To live out your calling.
To make an impact on this world. So get quiet and tune in. Be with yourself. Tune out the noise. What is it you CAN do? Now get even more specific: What is it you WANT to do? Even more specific: What is it you really, REALLY want to do? What is the THING that you haven't done yet or persued because your fear of failure, success, judgement, etc. has been greater than your want to accomplish your dream? Rise up. What's your THING? Decide and then DO.
Fulfilling your heart's intuition is one of the most radical acts of authenticity you can take.
And YOU alone have the power to make this choice. Be your own HERO.
It's time to step into your power and become who you were meant to be. Everything you need is already within you. Time to get to work. Marie xo
