At our core, we are breathtakingly sensitive.
We all possess unique gifts but revealing them can be risky.
The more authentic we become, the more our tender soul threatens to break.
We yearn to be free, yet fear being left behind.
If we move too far away from the norm, insecurity creeps in…
“What if I’m too much… Will I end up all alone?”
“What if I’m too different… Will no one want me?”
“What if I’m too sensitive... Who will understand me?
In a world like ours, those can be scary thoughts.

Take time to touch in with the very things that make you oh so vulnerable yet beautifully unique. Here are a few ways you can explore…
Mary Oliver once asked, “What do you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

And when dawn greets you in the morning, celebrate another chance to share your gifts so that you can find your rightful place in the world.
