Honor Your Uniqueness

We are often told it is better to give than to receive, it is best to be humble and it is best to not shine a light on ourselves. True, but it is important to recognize that until we honor ourselves, we will not be able to fully give to another, shine the light on another or truly understand humility.

Honor your uniqueness daily. Celebrate what is working and make adjustments where necessary. Suggestions are listed below:
  • Enjoy peace and quiet daily. Once you maintain the habit of being quiet either to contemplate, pray or meditate, you will be amazed how much more efficiently and creatively you will perform your tasks, duties and projects.
  • Love and nurture yourself, as you would like to nurture those around you. Once you master caring for yourself, caring for others will become effortless and spring from the heart instead of from duty.
  • Accept compliments from others with grace. Never disrespect the person complimenting you by disregarding or negating the compliment. Be grateful they see something special about you.
  • Spend time investing in and cultivating close friendships. Studies show that a sense of belonging is extremely important for emotional health and well-being.
  • Emotionally draining relationships are not healthy. Release all energy vampires and the like from your life.
  • Live a purposeful and cause-oriented life. Recognize and embrace that you are creating your life each and every day. You can choose to let life happen or to create it fully.
  • Love yourself with heart, soul and strength. Be compassionate and understanding while standing firm in the knowledge that you are both unique and capable. When you master this balance, being attached to your outcomes is not an issue because you will be achieving outcomes beyond your own imagination.
Live passionately everyday in your unique way!
