The Angels remind us that each day of this big life we have the opportunity to share something…about ourselves, our knowledge, our hopes for the future. We have the opportunity to create an opening for others to feel comfortable to do the same. It just takes a few people creating safe spaces for others to create the ripple effect of connection the world so desperately needs.
When we hold our emotions close, when we’re strong for everyone but ourselves, we may avoid additional pain, but we also close the door for others who may want to be open with us. Allow yourself, bit by bit, to open, even in the face of ridicule or pain. Allows others the gift of knowing both your joy and your struggles.
In the end, it doesn’t matter if you ate the right foods, if you found your perfect career, if you had the proper education, if you were fat or thin, if you were religious or agnostic. What matters is that you had the courage to share the love inside you, with yourself & with the world.
