As most of you know, Bruce Jenner announced recently to “Call me Caitlyn”!
Wow! What a powerful testimony to the human spirit.
Regardless of your religious or spiritual beliefs about Caitlyn’s transformation, there is a powerful lesson that all of us can learn by watching Caitlyn’s struggles.
It’s part of the human experience to struggle with coming to terms with who we are!
We have struggled to step into our authenticity.
To be willing to shout from the rooftop “THIS IS WHO I AM and I don’t care what anyone thinks.”
Take a moment to be aware of your hidden dreams… I don’t have to tell you what those dreams are.
YOU ALREADY KNOW!
And yet you play small.. you keep them hidden… you barely acknowledge them to yourself.
They start as a small whisper in the night… and over time they become a loud scream.
You silence them with music… television… sex… drugs… gambling… and other diversions.
And yet, when you are alone, and there is no noise to drown them out…
The voice to step into your larger vision of yourself is still there.
How do I know that?
Because – I too – didn’t listen to my inner voice for many years.
And while my dreams and visions for myself weren’t as scary to admit as Caitlyn’s dreams must have been for her, they still ate at me.. nagging at my soul… challenging my courage and my perceptions of what I am capable of becoming.
And it wasn’t until I was able to bold face, stare in the mirror, and declare….
“THIS IS WHAT I WANT and I don’t care who knows!”
…that I was able to heal… be myself… and step into the one and only life that is truly mine to live!
What are you holding back from doing?
Be brave…Be like Caitlyn… and shout out who you are to the world!
