“Determination is the wake up call to the human will.”  Anthony Robbins

 Hey you. I see you. I know you’ve been hurt. I know you weren’t given all the love you deserve. I know you’ve been told it’s too late, or it’s impossible, or that you’re not talented, pretty, smart, strong, or lucky enough. I know it wasn’t your fault. You were but a victim of circumstance, forced to bear the weight of an imperfect world. You didn’t ask them to put their fearful ideas into you. I get it. You’ve been let down by everyone around you. Everyone that’s gotten close to you has hurt you in some way, and it’s got you afraid to love, to live, to express yourself, to give the world all that you have to give, but I have news for you. If you take all those gifts that you have inside with you to the grave, no one will ever know about them. The world will go on yes, but without the unique piece you were supposed to add to the puzzle nothing will change. Your children will grow up like you did, inheriting fear, low self-esteem, and unworthiness. So how many more dreams have to go to the grave unfulfilled? How many more days will you coast through? How many times will you shove that small voice inside you down? That voice that’s telling you to get up, get out, to change your path. Your body’s growing older by the day, and time can never be replaced, so what’s it gonna take for you to realize that truthfully there’s NO such thing as playing it safe. You’re not helping the world by playing small, please understand that we are counting on you to shine bright. We were all born with a purpose, and it’s ALL of our time! Squandering your gifts is a curse, and it’s time to break the chains of self-doubt, pity, and apathy. You’ve been misinformed. Conditioned to believe that you’re just another person, insignificant and unworthy of greatness. You are a child of the most high, with a body literally made of stardust and that’s fact! You have the highest gift of any being on earth, intellect and imagination. They are meant to be used to their fullest capacity. Make a vow to yourself now to never be hushed or pushed aside, to never dull your shine again even if it makes people uncomfortable. Beloved, you were meant to thrive, not struggle to survive. Breathe deep and feel alive. Relax and let go. I love you and I am with you always.
