This is an edited post from 2018 which I wrote to myself as a reminder of how I want to live. Reading it today, I feel that it is still very true for myself now. It is easy to get caught up in life’s business and forget one’s inner values.
Know who you are …
Know your needs, identify them express them clearly. Find your voice. Find your style.
Own who you are take responsibility for your actions: past, present and future. Forgive your past. Protect your present. Don’t say yes if you mean no.
Be confident and assertive. Enjoy every moment of your life. Let go of everything that does not serve you.
Do not be afraid to fail or make a fool of yourself. No one is perfect not even you. You need to let go of that image of the perfect you.
Be busy with few things, but be intimately involved in it, and do a good job. Have less in your life but more quality, more time to do less, and more space with less material goods.
Listen more speak less: if there are no words to listen to then listen to sound. Show up in your life and shine your light.
Make the best of yourself, your talents, gifts and wisdom Flourish, flower, germinate and seed yourself.
Leave a legacy behind.
