We all have our unique gifts.
We might excel at our careers.
Even, perhaps, our relationships.
Many of us recognize this.
We see our potential.
We see how we serve others.
Our way of leaving an impact.
Yet, we keep our gifts to ourselves.
We feel as though we’re not ready to put it out there.
As though it’s not ready for the world.
Telling ourselves we’ll share it when it’s ready.
Days, weeks, months, and years pass by.
So many lives untouched.
So many opportunities for impact missed.
So many who would benefit from our gift, left without it.
Because we aren’t confident in ourselves.
Lying to ourselves.
Pretending that the work we’re doing is moving us forward.
When, in reality, we’re using it as a shield.
To feel safe.
You could keep working.
Trying to get it perfect.
Waiting until it’s just right.
But you’d be doing us a disservice.
Putting off sharing your light with the world.
Afraid of what others might think.
Stop hiding behind the work.
Put yourself out there.
Your truth is all you have.
It’s your gift.
You are worthy.
You’ve got this.
