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