28 Days of Gratitude – Day 15
I am very grateful today for my individualism in a world we are so often told we must be this, that, or the other.
What freedoms are we blessed with? These days I dance to the beat of my own drum… and I celebrate my own little empire I have been building. To no longer fear my ‘out of the box thinking’ offers a type of freedom that cannot be taken away.
We can be sucked into the void of conformity… or we can choose to celebrate all things good.
These days I lean into individuality, unity, and spirituality.
BUT I previously walked a road where I was placed in a metaphorical box. I was not physically imprisoned. Yet the chains of traditions and belief systems weighed heavily upon me. I was instilled with a deep fear. I thought God would smite me if I chose to step outside of this box I had been contained within by man.
At some point my inner child cried from deep within. It told me, enough was enough – it forced me to summon the courage to step outside of that box. I tiptoed at first, hoping that nobody would see.
Gradually the steps that I chose to take became larger and larger… until everybody started to see.
Every now and then the fear returns, and I go back to tiptoeing for a short while. I still dance with fear on occasion… yet I consciously choose every single day to break free from any invisible chains that try to entrap me.
Choice will always be an important ingredient in my life.
Some find comfort within conformity. To them it feels like a warm hug. But not to me. Conformity takes me on a journey back to a world lived through fear.
Be mindful of getting lost within the folds of conformity. We are so much more beautiful when shine all the colours of our rainbow… whatever that might look like for us personally.
Just be you!
As humans, we seem to give a lot of energy to fighting for our place. Imagine a world, where we don’t have to fight for place. Where respect is offered to those who are authentic.
Lean into that beauty that is you.
