Discovering the Beauty Within


by Michelle Starkey -

I was recently introduced as a keynote speaker at an event. They read my bio and I was amazed at all the things they said I was. Then I approached the podium and only half-jokingly asked, "Who was that person they were describing just now?"

Throughout life we play many roles as Shakespeare so eloquently describes in his play, As You Like It: "All the world's a stage and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances. And one man in his time plays many parts...."

When we view the world as a stage (play) or movie, we are able to step back and become the observer. With all this to consider, it's no wonder we become confused as to who we are. Are we all these things that we do? Maybe not, but they are a part of who we are.

YOU ARE POWERFUL!

We realize we have power to shape the world as we would like it through our self-expression. We are constantly expressing ourselves. Self-expression comes from our attitude, mood or state-of-mind and then shows in our external appearance.

Much of it is unconsciously portrayed through our actions. When we recognize and embrace our true power, our world changes. Everyone has access to wisdom and has the strength they need to express it. Who are you?

YOU ARE A SOUL WITH A DIVINE PURPOSE!

Eventually, people ask, What is my purpose on Earth? Why am I here? What's this life for? and so on.

Many times these questions may be answered with more questions: What makes your heart sing? What did you love to do when you were a child?

The answers, which only you can give, may be very simple. And may be the clue to the following statement:

YOU ARE A GIFT TO THE UNIVERSE!

We are all born with gifts inside us. Part of our purpose is to express and share our gifts with others. We receive gifts from the Universe (God, Spirit, Source...) and we give back by sharing with others.

 Sometimes, if we are not expressing ourselves from an early age (like the child prodigy?) or are stifled in childhood by various experiences, we may have many, many gifts lying dormant inside of us!

How many times have we heard about "late bloomers" who began writing, painting, etc. later in life? It's common now for people to change careers several times throughout their lives.

So, look inside yourself and discover the beauty within. You are so much more than you give yourselves credit for. We all are. We have so many gifts to give, so many blessings to share. So go forward and shine your light. Be the change you want to see and most important of all, be who you really are!
