Have you ever thought of winning the affection, approval, or acceptance of someone else as winning a prize? What if the true prize is YOU? What if you are actually a gift to both yourself and the world?
What if…your inner light shines through your eyes to everyone you see? What if…your scars bear witness to those around you of the strength they also possess? What if…your compassionate heart mends the broken hearts and melts the frozen ones among us? What if…your loving actions inspire other souls to act the same? What if…your embrace dissolves pain and eases loneliness? What if…your very presence heals the world…one person at a time?
I propose that as you become vulnerable and unwrap your authentic self, others will be able to see your worth and mirror it back to you until you can see the Gift that you are.
