Is Now the Time to Let Your Awesome Shine?

There is a quote from the movie What a Girl Wants that says -- “Stop trying to fit in when you were born to stand out.”

Many of us were taught as children that we needed to be like everyone else. If you weren’t part of the popular group, you didn’t fit. In order to be part of the popular group you had to be “like” those in the group. Difference was rejected. Same-ness was celebrated.

Most of us continued that feeling throughout our teens and into our adult lives. Then some where along the way we start to question who we really are. We find so many masks and layers that don’t belong to us. They helped us fit in with certain groups or people but they were never really true.

The truth is each one of us are born to stand out. To be different. To celebrate our unique-ness. To know our true value within ourselves. To share our specific gifts, talents and abilities with our world. And in my experience the only way to tap into that is to let the masks and layers go and let our awesome shine.

Some steps to help open the door to your awesome-ness:

1. Find out who you really are -- this is done through experience. Try different things. Set time aside once a week or once a month to try something you have never tried before. If you like it, keep doing it. If you don’t, don’t. You will be amazed at what you find out about yourself.

2. Pay attention to how you act and feel with those around you -- if you are constantly trying to say or do the right thing to be accepted by people it is time to change that. Awareness is the first step. Once you realize you are doing it you can choose to change it. If those people don’t appreciate it, you can choose to change those people to new ones who are willing to accept you for who you truly are. You don’t need to blame the other people to make the change. Just recognize it and find others. How do you find new friends? See step #1.

3. Just do it -- start living your life for you. Make choices that make your heart sing. Stop complaining and just do it. Your happiness is your responsibility. Is now the time to let your awesome shine?
