It amazes me how simple this saying is. The timing almost perfect.
Work for a cause, not applause.
Live life to express, not impress.
Don’t strive to make your presence noticed,
just make your absence felt.
I have a situation that I need to make a decision about. Staring at this simple quote, I know what I need to do. Jus step away, no need for a big declaration.
I recently wrote Stay or Go which my struggle with this topic. It wasn’t the first time I had pondered out loud. I highly doubt it will be the last time I do so either.
As much as I publicly write about my own struggles, I have volumes that are not public. I think this time in my life I am steadfast at being more genuine and authentic. I crave that around me, and most people are afraid of that kind of honesty.
A year ago if you told me that certain people in my life would become complete strangers and others so important I wouldn’t believe you. Today, I understand that there will be many changes in my life in the coming years. I see it in how I react, especially with my Mediumship. I am also painfully aware of those that allow their egos to get in the way of serving Spirit.
What makes me differentthan others? Why me and why now? In searching for the answers, I see that fear, ego and judgment are my largest enemies. That keeping them in check is half the battle. The other half is having compassion for others and patience as they learn what I already know.
That I must be fearless in my beliefs and learn to not judge people on a different path. Persistent in in my path, and focused on the good I do. Be a cheerleader for those that are striving to improve. A channel for Spirit to work through to improve this world, one person at a time. Surround myself with more like minded people.
It really isn’t about me, it is about the collective us. When you win, we all win.
