We all know how easy it is to allow external factors to falsely define who we are. We feel safe hiding behind an image, a title, money, or other fleeting treasures, but these external validations feed a false sense of worth. And ultimately, an identity built on a faulty foundation is bound to unravel in time.
Each of us is created beautifully and uniquely. We all have great purposes and destinies. We have different talents, skill mixes, personalities, viewpoints, and ideas that make up who we are. Just as our genetic make-up carries the information producing our physical characteristics, the passions and desires of our hearts carry the signals supporting our unique destinies and callings.
The world needs us to show up as our authentic selves. We must learn to silence the noise around us and explore inward to discover who we are created to be. What energizes you? What makes you come alive? What upsets you? What breaks your heart? The answers to these questions can hint at our destinies and point to the passions that stir within us.
If you are hiding, it’s time to come out. It’s time for you to come to the forefront and show the world who you are and what you carry. We need you, so don’t be afraid to be who you are. You are beautiful and you are created to make a powerful impact in a unique way!
