I was told that I am a person who knows how to walk in my passion. Something I typically overlook was pointed out because it was so quirky and awkward but so me. I did it with a confidence in knowing who I am and being bold enough to be fully me in that moment. I felt like Andy Dwyer who found a purpose in his Bert Macklin moment.
Can I encourage you with something today? We need more one-of-kind people who know how to walk in their purpose, who embrace their identity, and live out their passion. We need more originals and uniques. We get so caught up in conformity and comparison that we fail to be authentic. I've been down that road many times-living and doing something like someone else but it's not really me. It robbed my joy and limited me. It made me work too hard to be someone I am not called to be and exhausted my esteem to the point where I didn't know who I was anymore.
I'm still learning who I am though and it's humorous to notice what makes me who I am. But that statement was something that I encourage you with as much as it did to me. Be someone who knows who they are and who knows how to walk in that. Boldly and bravely and confidently. Be someone who embraces their quirks and their knacks and be someone who finds the joy in being their most real self. Be an Andy Dwyer who bravely lives out the purpose in every single Bert Macklin moment.
