It is time to stop hiding

I was standing there tongue tied and not sure how to respond.

I could feel my heart racing and I was getting anxious. Feeling the eyes of everyone looking at me waiting for an answer.

This was about 4 years ago and I was at my mum’s surprise 60th birthday party catching up with people I have not seen in over 10 years.

I did not know how to answer.

For years, the answer was simple as I would say my job title and explain how well I was doing in the corporate world and now that I wasn’t what would I say.

I fumbled and said that I was taking a break. The conversation quickly fizzled and I was soo relieved as I could now go and hide.

This event caused a chain reaction.

Who was I without my corporate identity?

Have you ever had that moment? Not knowing who you are or wondering what is next?

For the past 4 years, this is exactly what I have focused on.

Having moments of clarity and redefining who I am.

I am not a job title.

I am not just a Mum.

I am not just a daughter.

I am not just a sister.

I am not just an aunt.

I am ME.

Fun, compassionate, caring, kind, quirky, full of love and just a little silly when I need it.

We all have these amazing qualities within us that we don’t recognise as we are consumed by the labels.

It is time to rediscover who you are.

To remove the masks and the labels and allow your true self to shine through.

Stop hiding and allow yourself to shine and let everyone see your amazing gifts.

Because your are worthy of this and so much more.

Love and light
