Hiding

IMG_4694

Living in a culture driven by comparison, we often evaluate ourselves and others with an endless list of requirements to be valuable and acceptable. We are painfully aware of our flaws and fear exposure.

When fear of rejection or criticism consumes us, we learn to hide our true selves and project a perceived better self. This leads to an endless, tiring cycle of performance leaving little room for truly enjoying life.

We were created with unique personalities, gifts, talents, and passions. Settling into and embracing the beauty of how we were created leads us to a place of contentment and joy. It is from the acceptance of ourselves we learn to embrace, value and love others.

May you experience the joy of the Creator as you embrace the life only you can live.

It’s a great day!
