Is it lifting you up or bringing you down?
I’m not a big quote person, but today there were obvious connections to a bigger flow. I’ve mentioned writing and sharing in this form has and does totally freak me out, because I’m afraid I could piss someone off, make them sad, or my least favorite thing, be totally wrong. But once I acknowledged those possibilities, set them off to the side, I’m finding more and more inspiration coming my way. In addition there are more links, more dots being connected. Or sometimes I like to say it was another dot helping the connection.
Here are three quotes that found their way to me today (yes I went looking).
Albert Einstein – I must be willing to give up who I am in order to become what I’ll be
Joseph Campbell – We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us
Brene Brown – Let go of who you think you’re supposed to be and embrace who you are
Notice the common thread, willing to let go. The words sound so simple, but do you know how completely hard it is…to walk away, say goodbye, it’ll break you down, it’ll feel like your in a million little pieces. Then though you realize that by letting go you discovery the gateway to your full potential! At least in that moment. But to know our potential we have to step inwardly, dig to the deeps of our inner self.
Joseph Campbell – The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek
Albert Einstein – In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity
The next layer is you have to fight for YOU, be the warrior of your own heart, advocate for your own potential, believe in yourself. The more you begin to believe in yourself, the more you realize you can handle the difficulties while still functioning optimally..functioning fully.
