This post is dedicated to all those people out there who are even the slightest bit unsure of their amazing abilities! Yes I am talking about you! This summer I have discovered how reluctant people are to talk to their friends, fitness instructors, hairdressers, bartenders, or parents about their deepest doubts, concerns and fears. People in general feel very disconnected from the very groups that surround them. They are afraid of being mocked, of being shunned, labeled, misunderstood or cut off from communication. What i wish the people of my community would realize is how profoundly we feel a loss. It's so shameful that some of these people don't ever know the love, adoration and amazement we felt in their presence. We have a responsibility to one another to make people feel that they belong, and that they will be not only heard but understood and still accepted, even if the truths are ugly. We can change and enjoy it or stay the same and feel better about it, but there is no staying the same. We can march into the future together with a smile on our faces, open ears, open hearts and a strong spine or we can feel alone all together and blame ourselves into misery. So tell a friend you love them, give a hug to someone you normally wouldn't, shake hands with a new acquaintance, love each other. Show the world just how awesome you are!
