The words I would like to leave to humanity are walk in your own authenticity. While this may sound elementary, as I have walked through several phases of my journey, I realized I lost valuable time not being completely authentic. I am aware the growing process had a vast impact upon the way I viewed and perceived myself. However, decisions I made based on the environment, and peers caused me to present a facade which was not my character nor my stature.
Authenticity to me is the ability to reach within myself and expose even to myself, my triumphs and my tribulation. My time of cheers and my time of fears, embracing those different seasons in my life and growing and learning from each of them.
Experience has been one of the greatest and dearest instructors in my life. However, the knowledge I gained from mishaps, and calamities in this phase of my life produces wisdom and keen insight I didn’t possess as a younger adult. I would want the life lessons for each of you to be filled with equations and answers to address your authenticity. I wish for you to listen to your own brilliance, prayerfully much sooner than I.
What really matters is having the heart to empathize with others and to live a life which expresses the genuine gift within me. This is the reason I live a “no condemnation” life, and I have the gift to sense and empathize with many. I recall the roads of my journey which were less than favorable, and I was given this great second opportunity to learn from error and share with others so that they, too, can do the same.
A key component is to understand, and actually celebrate what doesn’t matter. By doing so we take back our authority to make the decision as to what enters our life and what doesn’t. It is of non-value to attempt to prove to anyone your self- worth or significance. I have also learned that it doesn’t matter whether my wisdom is accepted or not. My assignment is to present it, and trust that it becomes a beneficial tool in someone’s life.
I would leave these words and, prayerfully, they would be beneficial and profitable to at least one person. I would pray that it would be known that I made a positive difference when I entered, that I remained long enough, and I exited in a manner which displayed love, respect and wisdom.
“She gave her best, she lived her best life, and she encourages you to do the same.”
