Hey you… Yes YOU reading this.. here’s a gentle nudge and a friendly reminder that You are awesome!
Inner awesomeness can be defined as self-confidence, it comes from deep down inside, it is knowing who you are, it’s having the spirit of compassion, it’s knowing the things you like and the things you dislike. I believe that this awesomeness is in all of us, but we have to tap into it.
Eugene Hennie said:
“I forgot that I was awesome, “
I think this statement rings true for so many people because over time somehow we lose our self-confidence, our shine and our passion for life and then it takes going on an inner journey to remember not who we were but who we truly are and find our sparkle again.
So, what can we do when we lose sight of ourselves or lose our way?
In a blog i wrote some time ago, I mentioned that we all have a story to tell, each of our stories are different but what holds true is that at some point in our stories there comes a time of reflection where, it helps us to see where perhaps we went astray and gives us the opportunity to ask.
How did I get here?
What must I do to find my way back?
We can also try to pinpoint our purpose.
2nd Corinthians 3:2 says “You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men.” Truth be told, sometimes we are the only bible, encouragement, strength, smile that people see from day to day, we may not even pay attention enough to notice it and that in and of itself makes us awesome.
So, whether it be a smile or an encouraging word, the next two questions are:
What is the message that you have to share with the world?
Are you doing what needs to be done to live in and fulfill that purpose?
In one of my blogs titled “To thine own self be true” I spoke about being authentic, being authentic is a big part of that inner awesomeness, it’s the not caring what people say and walking in your truth from day to day that makes us special, only those who are insecure find reasons to hate because they only wish they had your inner strength.
The very fact that there are so many who have this strength is awesome, I believe it should be worn like a cape 🙂 or badge of honor and shown to the world, I mean, after all why hide it?
I opened with a quote from Eugene Hennie who said “I forgot that I was awesome”. Well, for those of us who have forgotten, here’s a friendly reminder “You-Are-Awesome”💓 don’t you ever forget and from this day on don’t you let anyone dim your light.
