One of the things I hate to see so many women do is suppressing, denying and hiding their true talents.
Unbeknownst to you, you walk around wearing a mask.
Many moms don’t realize it because they use their children as an excuse for wearing their masks. They say, "I'm doing it for the kids!"
May I suggest, you’re not doing it for the kids. You're doing it because that's what you think you have to do.
You're playing the game.
The game where you do everything in your power to prove you're good enough.
How do you play?
You get a good job. Dress the part. Look the part. Even speak the part. Heck! You soar as a leader, but sadly you do this while disowning essential parts of yourself.
So, instead of doing what you truly desire, you settle.
No one wants to acknowledge that they settled so you blame.
You blame your children, the bills, college, the job market etc.
You name it.
You blame it.
You see, your child does not want you downplaying who you are for them.
When you do, your child becomes an adult who walks in fear of being everything that God has called them to be. They pursue careers they hate, simply because someone told them they were good at it. Just like you did.
They sever relationships because they never learned or saw it modeled for them on how to live in harmony with who they truly are. These children turned adults get "good jobs," but deep down they are unfulfilled.
They live tragic lives.
I know what it feels like to live an unlived dream. To stay in a classroom because I'm "good at it,” all the while knowing that I was cut out for far more. Way more. The voices of "why don't you want to teach? We need good teachers,” haunted me. The longer I stayed (playing the game) I was keeping the vision “they” had for me alive; while truncating my vision. The one God showed me in my spirit.
No one talks about this, but living in the full magnitude of our light is more than most of us can imagine.
So we run from the light because we’re afraid we may get rejected or be alone. This is a call for you to take down the barriers and no longer attempt to prove that you're good enough. It's a call for you to stop masquerading. By doing that you're not living in the freedom you seek.
You're being an imposter.
When you finally give yourself permission to rediscover a deeper source of your own spiritual life, the gifts you've hidden for far too long and learn how to take back the power you've given to others, you'll connect with your soul's deepest purpose.
This is a wake-up call for you to discover the future you've always wanted. It's the ability to show up more powerful in your company, community and for your children. It's time for you to claim a grander part of you and access the divine presence you carry. It's about tapping into unlimited power. Because if you don't do this. Your child turned adult won't either. And the world doesn't need any more people like that.
