Being you is the gift of life.
As I sat and read my son a bedtime story I heard that still small voice within whisper “you can always be yourself”. At that moment life made sense. That it’s not what I had that made me…it was me being who I was created to be that made life special. It was definitely a moment of revelation.
I like nice things, but there is no price tag on a class act. That epiphany, you remember “you can always be yourself”; it made me realize that my taste for elegance is stemmed from within. The way I speak, the clothes I like, the quality I seek in the products I produce are all simply a reflection of me. The aura we send forth and the environment we co-create is an extinction of the elements God has sprinkled together in the process of creating us.
There is nothing more powerful than a force operating in the purpose in which it was created. Gravity, air, fire, water, then there’s you. When you tap into the real you; beneath the flesh, the background, and the ‘hood you grew up in – you become unstoppable. You began to operate in the flow of God. And we all know what that means – all things are possible. Power is the ability to ignite and give life. When in alignment with the stream carved out for you, that ability to ignite and give life is inevitable.
The ability to influence another is effortless. It’s something that happens without you even realizing it. A sweet aroma coming from a bakery causes a reaction to our physical body which can trigger a thought and eventually an action. The scent, a combination of elements sprinkled together in the process of creating the pastries, was simply being. It attracted people with tastes bud predisposed to liking its flavor. The same is for you.
It’s like being you is the prize.
