In today’s post, our amazing blogger of the month Leesah Bala! shares a blog post from her site Walk The Talk With Leesah titled, No, Stop Asking For It!
The only permission, the only validation, and the only opinion that matters in our quest for greatness are our own.” Dr. Steve Maraboli
You might be broke and broken or have random questions like… Am I good enough? Or even smart enough? Beautiful or handsome enough? Why don’t I feel content with what I have? I don’t see myself talking more about the world seeing me.
One thing you should know is that the world didn’t give you permission to be here or even yourself asking to be in the world either. But some of us are still asking for permission but sometimes you have to stop asking for permission, but give the world notice that you have been here, give the world notice that you have played politely long enough, and now it’s time to play full out.
Give the world notice that if they can’t handle your light cause you are no longer going to dim it, they can put on some shades, give the world notice that non-negotiable, just showed up because when you become bold, audacious, and unapologetic, then all of a sudden just a mere glimmer of you something happens to your environment and you become fully and truly aware of your life purpose and assignment.
That you are here to inspire, lead, give love, the way you rise above your own uncertainty, cultural conversation, religious conversations, the way you show up and say how can I serve humanity, and also you recognize your human spirit is unbreakable, unshakable, unstoppable and unavailable to the relationship that is not going right or the circumstances around you.
And once you come into the fullness of that and operate with that knowledge, all of a sudden you become contagious and people just want to be around you and share your oxygen because of the energy you give and make them believe again.
So what is your quest after coming into the fullness of yourself?

It might just be to put a smile on someone’s face, it might just be to forgive your ex so your next doesn’t suffer what happened in the past, it might just have to be the constancy in someone’s life, it might just be a good morning text that “hey, I think about you and hope you are okay”, it might just be that you are 100% present for your children, spouse or loved ones, it might just be buying lunch for someone.
I know that we have our life to live and all that, but these good deeds might go a long way tomorrow.
Love and Light to you always.
