Today I was asked to articulate my expertise, along with twenty other women. We each tried it. We stumbled, mumbled, and tried again.
The most amazing part of this exercise was the gift we gave each other . . . one by one, the group was able to reflect back, with beautiful clarity, the fullness of each of our gifts which we were uncomfortable to claim ourselves.
What greatness inside of you do you need help embracing? Try this:
I want . . .
I know . . .
I am . . .
I can . . .
Let your thoughts unfold. Let your words flow. Do it with a smile. Feel a little uncomfortable. Then read it. And re-read it. Maybe put it in a stamped envelope addressed to yourself, mail it, and open it again in three days. Be that someone else who believes in your full beauty, strengths, and gifts. As this part of you unfolds, know that the world is waiting to receive You.
And then do it for a friend. Let her know what you see in her. Give her the nudge to embrace her fullest self.
Sometimes our greatest truths are the most vulnerable parts of us. This truth wants to be heard. It needs a voice. And it needs to know that the universe is waiting with compassionate ears.
What would you like to claim with joy and sureness?
