I have many inspirational people in my life. People who boldly share their light, talent and gifts with the world. Many of these people could be described as unorthodox; those who may not fit into that neat cookie cutter type of mold. I truly appreciate these inspirational people as they are a constant reminder that each person's inner light is their own unique spark to cultivate and share with the world.
As I listened to one of these amazing inspirational people share their wisdom yesterday, I was left with a resounding quote that continued to play over and over as I left the room. This quote, by Howard Thurman, goes as follows:
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
The assignment from this inspirational speaker was to meditate on what "makes you come alive"? Simply pay attention to the places, spaces, people and activities that make you feel most ALIVE. Where are you when that inner light feels most bright? What makes you feel more comfortable to share that light?
Being aware of when that inner bright light is being fueled is the first step. Then following through with the boldness to share with others consistently is the next practice.
Take some time today to cultivate awareness of your inner light. Bring a sense of wonder and curiosity to when you feel the spark being ignited. When you have cultivated the awareness of this light, engage in the practice of honoring it and boldly sharing it with yourself and others throughout your days. When you honor and share your light with the world, you naturally inspire others to do the same. Be the inspiration!
