We are each unique beings in every way. We all possess distinctive fingerprints, irises, and voice patterns, and we have an original combination of personality traits, feelings, and thoughts. We all see life through the lens of our own unique experiences, beliefs, and perspectives.
When we embrace our individuality, our gifts and talents become energized. Our authentic self has permission to shine through. When we conform in order to fit in, be accepted, and avoid rejection, we shut down and give our power away. As we learn to practice self-acceptance and honor our differences, we feel safe to be our true self.
We all wish to be seen for who we actually are. In order for this to happen, we must first take the time to know, honor, accept, and celebrate what makes us different from others. When someone recognizes and acknowledges our true essence, we feel seen and known on a deep level.
If you don’t embrace your uniqueness, you can spend your entire life striving to conform and comparing yourselves to others. By celebrating what makes you different rather than wasting time trying to be like others, you will discover your unique and special gifts. This discovery will lead you to Living Your Truth.

Your life’s vision is the road map to how to live your life. Goals help make your vision a reality. To create it, you must know what it is.
Goals should be measurable and quantifiable. No goal is too big or too small; rather they help you realize what you want more and less of in your life.
Our lives can feel out of control when we have not clearly defined our goals. Take time each week to consider what you want to accomplish. Make a PLAN to align your activities to your life’s vision.
Do what’s important first. The distractions of email, text messages, and reality TV shows can keep us from focusing on what is truly important.
