Who do you trust?

We live in a world where we’re bombarded with information. We’re told how to be the perfect parent, or the best employee. How to run a business, or be a great lover. How to lose weight, or be successful. What to think, eat, wear and say. You get the idea – the list goes on and on.

It comes at us from everywhere….. Magazines, television, newspapers, our community, online, peers, families, friends and even our partners.

While access to information is great and it can certainly give us ideas, it does make me wonder.

Is all this information creating more disconnect within us? Are we no longer thinking for ourselves?uniqueness

The more we hear about what we ‘should do’, the less we can trust ourselves to know what’s best for us.

Where did we decide that we wanted to fit in and conform rather than be who we truly are?

This isn’t evolving, this is stagnating. You know if you are there. It doesn’t feel so good.

The only person who is the expert on you, is you.

As Judy Garland said to her daughter,  “Always be a first rate version of yourself and not a second rate version of someone else.”

I believe the biggest gift you can give to yourself and the world, is to be true to yourself. There is no one else on this planet like you. You are unique. There will be no one else like you ever again, with your combination of experiences background, skills, passions and quirks.

We all make a difference. We all count. Your contribution is needed.

Your passions and desires are there for a reason…. They are calling for you. They are doorways into the greatest version of you. Stop trying to make yourself fit and be free.

This isn’t to say there isn’t value in what others say. It’s just that we shouldn’t accept it unquestioningly as ‘the truth’. It is that individual’s truth. Not ours. We should try it on and see if it fits for us…… Test it against your inner knowing.

How much are you trusting yourself and your ability to know what’s best for you in any given situation?

Begin to trust yourself to know what is right for you.

Be you. But better.

Write your own story.

Choose things that free, fulfil and inspire you.

Be curious.

Take tiny steps.

Start experimenting.

Be your own guru.

No matter where you’re at in your life, you can change your world. One choice at a time.

The world is waiting on you. What are you waiting on?
