What does it really mean to do our work?
Not our jobs or our businesses, but the deep work that makes us grow and allows our soul to shine?
It’s not about what we tell others, or how we appear in public.
It’s about learning how to be more true to ourselves, and how we show up in the world.
Are we contributing or taking? Are we being truthful or hiding? Are we taking our internal struggles and putting them on others?
Or are we facing our deepest, darkest secrets and unraveling the trauma and the pain?
We often think that if we show our hurt and pain to others they will think less of us. In reality, we become easier to relate to and more human.
We all have experiences that cause us to feel doubt and shame. Being truthful about it, and really working on it, not only make sour lives better, it serves as an inspiration to others.
The world needs more people to step up, bare their soul, and show us how to heal.
The world needs more courageous spirits to lead the way into a brighter day.
So let’s stop hiding and start being the light that shines in a darkened room.
