Many times we get focused on what we want to be that we don’t focus on who we already are. The gifts and abilities God has given us.
I was recently talking to my college Brian G Johnson about my speaking engagements I’ve had recently and I said, “Yeah, I just wish I was more funny. I don’t have that natural sense of humor. I love to have fun I love to laugh.” He said, “Yeah, Shelley the way I see you is I see that you are fun.” He said, “You don’t need to be anything different just be more of you.”
I had a paradigm shift in that moment that I was wanting to be something different than myself. I was wanting to be someone else. All I need to do is be more of who God created me to be. Be more of the person that God has made me. Let those gifts and abilities shine.
I encourage you today, what is it that you are just focused on, like I need to more of this. I need to do this. I need to be different. See if there’s a paradigm shift for you as well where you can simply be more of you. More of who God has created you to be.
Today I encourage you to let your light shine.
