You are just existing. You do not feel as if you are really living. you feel lethargic, just going through the motions. Something is missing but you can't put your finger on it. God made you special:
- Special combination of gifts and talents
- Special personality
- Special physical attributes
- Special characteristics
You are only truly "alive" when you are being your true self. Copying others moves you away from the true you.
Giving yourself permission to be you means that you are not doing things just because society, friends or family think you should be doing so. You are doing what feels right to you. You are in touch with your spirit and the Holy Spirit. Your spirit is being guided by the Holy Spirit your Creator who knows exactly what is best for the person He created YOU to be. To live your authentic life surrender to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. He will lead you to truths unknown to those who would love to dictate the manner in which you should live.
It is okay to be different from the pack. You were made to shine and you can only do so if you allow your light (personality & talents) to shine brightly. Align your physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual health in order to feel more alive than you ever could imagine. If one area is out of balance your life will be unbalanced.
Align your life guided by the Creator and not the created. Give yourself permission to be who you were created to be and ignore the pull to fit into someone else's agenda for your life. Live life to the max on your terms.
