As you know, I am always on the hunt for Inspiration Tuesday magic. But sometimes I find a post that I want to do more with. I don’t just want to pass it on, I want to play with it and explore it and share what I find in the process. So consider this the first of a series of post-responses. I’ll share a post that made me think, play with it a little bit, and then invite you to do the same (some of these posts will be a little older, because I have a backlog of them that I’ve been aching to explore).
Here’s the first one:
You can let your true self out by Rachael Maddox
Who do you become when you let your true self out?
When I let my true self out…
I can dance. Always. Everywhere. Boldly.
I can speak and write my truth with courage.
I can calmly defend my beliefs and boundaries.
I am equal parts vulnerability and confidence.
I can wear every colour of the rainbow.
I can talk to strangers.
I can listen with compassion.
I can process criticism while remaining centred in my own beliefs.
I can stop and rest.
I can move without urgency.
I can question “common sense.”
I can ask “So What?” and “Why Not?”
I can follow my instincts.
I can shine my light in the world.
I can state my opinion instead of saying “I don’t know, what do you think?”
I can process past hurts and release them fully.
I can heal myself and help others heal.
I can forgive.
I can go on adventures. I can invite magic in.
When I am seized with wild bursts of inspiration, I can leap joyously to answer the call.
I can share the love and pass it on.
When I let my true self out, I become a dancer, writer, artist, lover, mama, friend, wayseer, rebel, healer, and goddess. I become…well, myself, really. All my favourite parts of me combined. 🙂
How about you? Who do you become when you let your true self out?
