Along the journey in my life, I have accepted the affirmation that I AM the gift in my life. I never could have imagined considering this belief prior to my transformational path of self-awareness to accept that I AM the gift.
It was when I denied the gift of a friend’s compliment that prompted an immediate life changing transformation. My friend was disappointed when I didn’t accept her compliment that I am a gift in life, which was her gift to me. Imagine if I told you that you truly are the gift in your life. Would you accept it with gratitude or resistance?
With curious eyes in life, I observe how some people navigate through life effortlessly with ease and grace, while others struggle to move forward in life, no matter how hard they try. The solution is quite simple in that it’s all about your state of mind! Disempowering or negative thoughts and language will always hold you back or keep you stuck in life. On the flipside, empowering and positive thoughts will propel you upward in life!
As I relate to visuals, I encourage you to visualize yourself hiking with a 10 pound rock in your backpack with the goal of reaching the mountain top. Quite challenging to say the least, but when you decide to remove the heavy load in your backpack, your hike will flow with ease as you’ve lightened the load and you’ll experience the freedom of movement as you attain the goal of reaching the peak!
The same can be said for your emotional baggage and deciding when you are finally done with carrying it within you… your proverbial internal backpack. I’ve come to realize that there are two categories when it comes to emotional baggage… those who choose to stay within the wheel of the baggage claim circle where life is safe as that is where the comfort zone lies, in spite of the angst and drama, or those who desire to remove the emotional baggage but don’t quite know how.
The “how” is found in the keyword DECIDE. When you decide to step out of your comfort zone, address and conquer your fears, eliminate limiting beliefs and allow yourself to receive support from others as you navigate towards living a life of liberation from what holds you back, you are proudly proclaiming “I am worth it as I am the gift!”. It is your birthright to live your life just as it was intended, with love and light.
Self-love is the greatest gift of all and I encourage you to make time for yourself, be kind to yourself and step into the glory that is YOU. Your reward will be experiencing a life of harmony, abundance of like-minded people and infinite possibilities and opportunities that will come your way.
All you have to do is untie the ribbon that’s holding you in the box, and let your light shine bright… the world is waiting just for you!
