If you could shed something, what would it be? Think about how good it would feel to not have it. You could feel more warmth from those around you. What a great way to celebrate Independence Day – freedom from the pieces of you keeping you from the light.
I have joked about this with friends before that it takes a village to take care of certain people in our lives. Seriously though, we are all the result of those around us – for better or for worse. We are the product of our parents and their parenting. We are the product of our friends and the bullies in our childhood. We are the product of our teachers – both in school and in life. We are the product of those loves we had enter and leave in our life. They have all shaped us and left their mark on me. I have no more stock parts, if you will.
