When I saw the Nayyirah Waheed quote, below, (while Instagram stalking), I was (1) moved to tears, and (2) reminded of the Shi Scott video, below, that I saw earlier this week on Facebook: “you are one out of one … and it is your job … to offer that one to the world …that’s why you are here … you have a purpose … you are important … you always will be.”
Woah. Such wisdom from such a young soul. And such a great reminder for myself that I am a totally unique, awesome and fun gift to this Universe and I am here to share that gift. That is my purpose – to share the gift of me. I am blessed beyond belief to have a second shot at life, and in getting that second shot, I am discovering who I am. I am a writer. I am a blogger. I am an attorney. I am a daughter. I am a sister. I am an aunt. I am a friend. I am smart. I am funny. I am kind. I am sober. I am recovering.
I have a lot to offer this world.
And so do you.
Let’s not forget that.
