And you will know how
To let it ring out
As you discover
Who you are
Others around you
Will start to wake up
To the sounds that are
In their hearts
-Glorious by David Archuleta
Ever since the first time I heard this song, this verse has stood out to me. I believe it. I believe as we each live true to the voice inside of us, that we will inspire others to also live true to the voice inside of them. If we each do what we feel inspired to do, the world will be taken care of.
Have you ever noticed that when you’re around someone that is genuine, you feel free to be genuine yourself?
Marianne Williamson said it in her very famous quote:
“We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
This is how I want to be. I want to allow others to be who they want to be whether I agree with it or not. I know I can do this by being brave enough to act in the ways that feel true to me, without worrying how others are going to judge me. The truth is, we all judge each other for good or bad. But someone’s judgement doesn’t make us good or bad. We are worthwhile whether someone judges us worthwhile or not. This is so amazing.
Comment and tell me about someone you have met with whom you felt you could be yourself.
