Hi there tribe, it’s me again. Yup, you guessed it. Your soul speaking. I haven't been around in a while and well that’s because life gets busy. Just like you, I get carried away with other tasks and to do’s. But now I am back. I am focused. And I have something to share. I know that you won’t want to listen, and believe me, I can play this game. You and I have played it many times. Actually, that is what this whole thing is about. Not just hearing things, but listening. So know that when I say I know you can do this, meaning listen to me for the next 2 minutes, you can. Because you have done it before and I hope you'll do it again. Because I know you need to hear this. I know you need to relive this. But before we get there, I need you to think back. Think back to the first time you heard someone say, “yes you can”, “you are loved”, “you are worthy”, “you are important”. Think back to the first time those words were the ice picks that finally cracked your cold heart. Think about that. Go there. Right now. Close your eyes. And just be.
See I remember it all to well. There you were. Broken, afraid, stressed, confused. You name it, you were it. It didn't matter what you did, what you said, what you wanted, there was no way you were going to get it. Because you couldn't let those words break down the walls and re stitch your heart. You heard them week to week, sometimes even day to day, but there you were. Not able to hear them fully. Not able to allow them to transform you life. Not able to let them set you free. You tuned them out. You thought these aren't words for me. You convinced yourself that you weren't worthy. That they were meant for people who deserved them. And that no matter how hard you tried, it would never be you. And this went on for a while. It built up. The importance and desire for those words grew just like the walls you built around your heart. But you could only push them away for so long. because just like pain being demanded to be felt, words like this, they demand to be heard.
And that takes us to that place. The day. The song. The speech. The whatever that finally got you to not only hear, but to listen. If you know where we are in this story of yourself, you can still feel that feeling in your belly. The same one you felt that very moment when you finally let those words be heard. That feeling, the one you are experiencing again. It’s more than love. It’s more than happiness. It’s worthiness. It’s the moment you were finally able to allow yourself become worthy of those words. That feeling, it is the catalyst of all feelings. Because you see, nothing can be felt, nothing can be fixed, nothing can get better until you have allowed yourself to feel worthy of those things. To decide deep down in that heart of yours, that you deserve and are worthy of all your hopes and dreams. It starts with finally listening to the love and encouragement that surrounds you every single day.
And you know what? That day whether you can remember it or not. It is the reason you are here. It is the reason you have what you have. It is the reason you are you. And it should be celebrated. It should be acknowledged. Because when we hear those words, and we finally listen, they begin to become a part of us. They begin to drive our actions. They change our views. The fuel our dreams. they become the very essence of who we are. And what may we be? Unique and worthy individuals who set this world on fire with dreams, hope, and love each and every day.
Right here and right now, remember those words. Listen to them again. Let them fuel you to achieve whats next. Because what you are right now, where you are right now, it wasn't by chance. it wasn't some miracle. It wasn't time healing old wounds. It was you. You deciding that you were worth the love and the laughter. The memories and milestones. The pink bows and baseball bats. The career and the house. The big things and the little. YOU did that. Not by coincidence, but by opening your heart to what it knew all along. And guess what. You’re gonna do it again and again until your last breath. Because that is the only way you know how to live, and by that I mean truly live. I know you can, because you already have. I’m just here to remind you that the time is now.
Yes you can. You are strong. You are loved. You are beautiful. And you are oh so worthy.
