You Are Amazing
We move through life with a deep, unspoken need to connect and belong. We crave other peoples’ smiles and laughter, and pats on the back. Seek their high fives, fist bumps and recognition. We soak up their likes, retweets, and subscribes.
Acknowledgement from other people makes us feel visible, valuable, and accepted. Their opinions and praise of us becomes our measurement of “enough-ness” and belonging. Our deep need for validation from others is part of our DNA as human beings.
But, think for a moment. When is the last time you did something that amazed only you? You know. That memorable or meaningful thing that, even now, when you think about it, makes you say “Wow! I did that!”. Something that makes you feel really good about yourself, or reminds you just how enough you are. That one thing you’re personally proud of that you didn’t post, tweet, or video about; and, your family and friends may not be aware of.
Today’s Mind Travel focuses on blowing your own damn mind! Taking time to marvel and appreciate who you are, as you are right now. And, to inventory the amazing things you do or have done, behind the scenes, that others know little about but serve as your source of confidence, energy, and strength.
Today, celebrate all the ways you have and will continue to blow your own mind. Let’s journal about it…
