Your Gift(s)

by Starla J. King on December 20, 2011

“Are you going to let anything get in the way of doing those things?” she asks the 7-year-old child.
“NO!” the child responds, rolling her eyes, as though the consideration of dream derailment is the most ridiculous thing she’s ever heard.

This 2 minute video (Own Your Awesome from Nona Jordan on Vimeo) brought tears to my eyes this morning.  Watch it real quick so we can discuss…

There, see what I mean?  Powerful stuff, the confidence of a 7-year-old.

What if we started living as though who we are and what we love is worthy of our own approval?

Really, I mean it.  Consider it.  Seriously seriously consider it.  What an incredible gift you would be giving to this world.

Still not convinced?  Read Nona’s post: Own Your Awesome.

What is YOUR awesome??  And will you share it?

’tis the season, you know….

ok, I’ll start:  for 2012, I own:

  • my ability to write in a way that connects people to themselves and to others
  • my idiosyncracies from my creative spirit and mind
  • my ability (and desire) to Love…

ok…shy… that’s enuf for now… YOUR turn!!!
