I matter. I am a critical component of God’s plan for everyone on this earth, and so are you. My every word, be it harsh or kind, has the power to imprison or enthrone both myself, and the listener, as do yours. My every action can heal or harm, and my lack of action delivers judgement or acceptance, and you have that same power. The decisions I make now will affect generations to come, and what this will look like depends on whether those decisions are made from love, or fear.
Why is it so difficult to believe something as simple as “I MATTER”? Maybe because if we accept that as fact, we will also have to accept responsibility that our actions and attitudes affect our future, which affects the future of others also. I think each of us know in our hearts that we are (thank you Butterfly Circus) MAGNIFICENT, due to the magnificence of our Creator. I think we are indeed, as Marianne Williamson wrote, more afraid of our light, our power, our gifts. That they will overwhelm us, or perhaps those around us.
Do we feel we need permission to be magnificent, beautiful, living and loving out loud~in vivid color? Yes. But it was given to us with our first breath. The only thing we’ve done by holding ourselves back and dimming our light is made it seem important for others to do the same! What a fun downward spiral it has been so far, right?
I see that we need to accept and really truly KNOW that being awesome doesn’t mean no one else gets to be awesome. We can shout it out that EVERYONE can. There is plenty of awesome for everyone. Plenty of cash, success, fame, laughter, and love for every single one of us. This isn’t a lottery based on luck. Each of us have lives created in love, by Love, for love.
Every one of us matters. We are crucial. We are powerful. We are magnificent. Let’s not diminish ourselves for even one more moment.
