Come and Find (Me)Posted: July 26, 2013
The best gifts come from the heart, not the store-
Our core gifts are not the same as our unique talents or killer athletic skills; Core gifts, quite simply are the places within us where we feel and care the most deeply.
Core gifts reflect our true spirit, our generosity to others and a profound sensitivity to feeling(s), Just as your fingers caress your favorite double latte today, our core gifts are as unique as our fingerprints, as unique and amazing as each one of us. When we treasure and become aware of our true gifts, they become the most exciting and straightforward path to whatever we choose to do: Embracing your lover, running with all your heart, surrendering to the moment …
When we surrender and become true to ourselves, we sense in our soul that we have something precious to offer the world. It’s in these places where we feel the strongest. It can be terribly painful when our friends and family, the people we love dearly … Do not value these intimate parts of ourselves. They don’t want to hear about love, passion, kindness, simplicity, surrender – Helping you to heal, to run faster, to bike with all your heart. They want split times, sets, reps, numbers, miles and sweaty, vain self pics … We learn to bury and cover these beautiful gifts we have to offer, we keep them safe, hidden in our heart. With each layer we build, we hide, we take one step further back from sharing our unconditional love of being.
Each one of us can rekindle, find passionate love for whatever (I mean whatever … Sex – Running – Yoga – Get creative) by reclaiming our true gifts.
As we start to unravel and open up our hearts, something amazing happens. We find that we start to attract people who love us for who we really are; Not who we are expected be. The more we embrace and live in the power of our true selves and vulnerability, the more attractive we become–without ever losing a pound, stepping on the worn out scale or buying a new yoga outfit.
I was inspired to share this post by a few of you reading this morning (you know who you are). Surrender to yourself and rekindle your love, your true gifts and offer them to the world – Be well this weekend and please take care!
