This quote sounds a bit intimidating, doesn’t it? Being human, is hard enough, and for those of us who want to live up to the expectations to the ‘Jone’s next door’ can be exhausting.
We run into many challenges in life when we aren’t comfortable with whom we are, and the great value we have to offer. We each have a treasure hidden in our lives that we take for granted and if we aren’t careful, we allow the enemy to rob us of the very thing God has entrusted to us. Our inner voice, our inner strength, our unique qualities and unique contributions we make daily to the world.
We are here to know our truth and learn how to speak and live with confidence and pleasure. All too often, we face the pressure to conform whether from others or ourselves. But it is really important that we feel free to be true to who we are as a person.
As a youngster, I would wear two different colored socks around the house. Even today, I catch myself doing the same under boots or sneakers. You think I care what my family or friends say…nah. But I do jokingly tell them that’s my creative side. 🙂
We are all unique…stop trying to be like someone else and be yourself, everyone else is taken.
