Self-Awareness

Who are you:
when you’re alone,
beyond what you do for a living,
outside your relationships,
in the dark when no one’s watching,
when you question life,
when you’re scared or tired or fed-up?

Who are you…really?

In the hustle and bustle of life, it can be easy to sometimes forget who we are at our core. We forget that we are God’s creation; perfect in our imperfection. We get caught up in the things of this world, forgetting to remember that this is simply a transitory state until we get back to spirit side.

Do you ever forget that who you are is not:
the sum of your work accomplishments,
the roles you play right now (or the one thrust upon you as a child),
what you own,
the way you look, or how you talk?
All of those are human manifestations. Our true selves are limitless and not governed by the laws of this planet. Our true selves are and always have been spirit energy. Right now, in this temporary reality, we are humans moving through time. But, we are part of the universe. We are part of each other. We are part of God.

When we dig deep—when we set aside the material possessions, the ego, the insecurities, and the judgment, we can truly love. But, love has to begin with self.

Do you (really) know yourself?
What’s your “thirty-second elevator pitch”; a quick summary of who you are—not something rattled off like “My name is Kay McLane, I live in Pennsylvania, I’m a writer, designer, and teacher”, but something that shares who you are at your core, and what you stand for.

How do you love yourself (in what ways do you show yourself that you have value and are worth being loved)?
Have you ever breathed into to yourself the knowledge that you are good, that you matter, that you are an important part of this journey?
Or, have you always put yourself down, put yourself last on the list, put yourself in a box too small for your spirt?

As we become self-aware, we are given insight and knowledge that “grows us” into who God knows we are—not simply humans always doing, but humans being: cognizant of our thoughts and actions, paying attention to how we feel, knowing our strengths and our weaknesses, honoring our uniqueness (and giving up trying to be like someone else), living into our gift and believing that what we add to our planet does matter, because it does.

You do have value. You are important. You are worth becoming self-aware.
Happy Friday,
Kay
