"I close my eyes and I can see a world that is waiting up for me, that I call my own. Through the dark, through the door, through where no one has been before, but it feels like home. They can say that it all sounds crazy. They can say I've lost my mind. I don't care. Call me crazy. We can live in a world that we design. Cause Every night I lie in bed, the brightest colors fill my head. A million dreams are keeping me awake. I think of what the world could be. A vision of the one that I see. A million dreams is all that it is gonna take. A million dreams for the world that we're gonna make."
LOVE this. Not only do I marvel at the voices and the lyrics from the Greatest Showman soundtrack, but I appreciate the messages conveyed. By building your truth and integrity muscle, and cultivating your unique gifts and fine tuning your own voice, the world takes notice and benefits. After all, this is why we are here, isn't it? To become who we were meant to be? To shine and share our gifts, and contribute to the greater whole. Unfolding into this truth takes courage, and it requires an inner compass to guide you, especially in the face of a world that is often preaching otherwise.
Create your world, the belief systems and mindset that accompany it and feed you, and then learn how to navigate the inevitable hard in all of its various forms, and know that it will show up at least 50% of the time. By accepting that life is hard, you are able to choose your hard; don't let the hard choose you. It's the difference between making life happen for you versus life happening to you. Are you ready?
