Happy Friday! As you have figured out by now, I’m a fan of e-mail. My job has me at the computer much of the day and I’m very grateful that I enjoy having that connection with people via email. I use instant messenger as well for work and put a different message up each day such as: Today – choose love; Today – choose peace; Today – choose inspiration. A few weeks ago I created one that I’m using today as it has inspired this message: Be a snowflake – by being yourself.
It is said that no two snowflakes are exactly alike. That simple statement just amazes me as I can get caught up in that understanding when it’s snowing. I look out the window and wish I could take a look at each one and truly see their difference. They are magnificent examples of how nature works in collaboration and right timing. Nature provides the perfect elements for them to thrive on – the right temperature, the right moisture, etc. They are all beautiful in their own unique way. Some are small, some are big and fluffy, some are wet, some are powdery, and some appear to be falling from the sky as if they were shot from a cannon, while others take their time and wistfully fall to the ground.
They are all different. Yet, even with their differences, they come to the earth’s surface in collaboration with all the other snowflakes as if they’ve made an agreement of ‘yes we’re different, but as a team, we are more powerful, more beautiful, and more creative’. They create a blanket together to cover the earth as she rests until the next season. They live side by side in harmony not fearing the differences of the flake next to them, but seeming to understand that while enjoying their own uniqueness, they know of the overall connection of snow. We too have a connection in humanity yet each of us have own our uniqueness as individuals. How inspiring would it be if we could all just flake out a bit more like snow and simply allow each other the grace and space to just be. Love each other for their unique gift they provide the earth and love ourselves for our unique gift as well? So I invite you to be a bit flaky and act like snow.
Quotes of the day:
“Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.” ~ Judy Garland
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind”. ~Dr. Seuss
“You want to be ALLOWERS. And you will know you have achieved that when you are willing to allow another, even when the other does not allow you. When you are able to allow, even when the other is not allowing you – you will have absolute freedom.” ~ Abraham Hicks
For the next week I invite you to:
Allow yourself to celebrate your unique gift you share with the world. When you catch yourself seeing someone else of having more or better than you, step back, breathe, and celebrate YOU and know you can shift your consciousness at any moment you choose to shift.
Allow others to be their unique gift. It certainly doesn’t mean you have to spend time with all of humanity, but allow them to live their truth as you live yours.
Dream of huge, beautiful, fluffy snowflakes and realize that same brilliance exists in you.
Mostly, I invite you to be that snowflake that is gorgeous, brilliant, graceful and absolutely 100% authentic and unique to itself – yet has a wonderful time falling from the sky with millions of other snowflakes and lying together in a beautiful blissful blanket.
