{Taking Inventory}

Today’s post comes from our Live-Brave Founder and Creator, Lesley Glenn.

It's not about knowing what things I have, it's about knowing me and what I want out of life.  It's about living in a way that takes into account my imprint on this earth and the people around me.  It's about learning to create instead of just existing.  ~ Leigh

The words above are not mine.  I found them penned in someone else’s journal and they surged through my soul.

One might think that wanting to live for yourself and desiring the most out of your gifts, talents, relationships, community, or  job is  selfish.  I understand that passing thought.  Because I was one of those people.

To be thankful for oneself seems so contrary to what we are taught.

However, taking inventory of the amazing person YOU ARE, is the highest compliment you can give to your creator, God.

To thank him for making you unique and perfect and in his image is to accept his deepest gift to you.  LOVE.

So today, I am making a list of all the things that he has placed in me.

Breath

Compassion

Empathy

Art

Mercy

Generosity

Healing

When I celebrate these things, I can not help but want to share them with others, with abandon and abundance.

The imprint I leave on this earth, will be those things that God gave me as his gifts.

I am uniquely me.

You are uniquely you.

So as we reflect during this Thanksgiving 2013, remember:

There is no one on this planet who has what you have to give.  No one else has your singular DNA.  No one else has been created for your purpose, and destiny on this earth.

So take inventory, of you who are.

remarkable, special, singular, exceptional,noteworthy, notable, extraordinary; unequaled, unparalleled,unmatched, unsurpassed, unrivaled.  

and whoop it up, if even for a minute.

I promise you will smile.  

Happy Thanksgiving from my heart to yours,

Lesley

  1. You are those things, and so much more. And I love that you share them abundantly. Thank you for this beautiful, personal inventory idea. I will take some time during this long weekend and reflect on this.
