To Be a Beautiful Snowflake

October 20, 2014

images… you have to stand out in the COLD.

And no one likes to stand out in the cold. It usually means that you are alone and uncomfortable.

But the snowflake can only exist out in the cold. It is the only place that can support it.

We are all beautiful snowflakes – one-of-a-kind, original and unique. We can only thrive and be ourselves when we stand out in the cold and stand up for who we are. It is not always convenient and not always comfortable but always necessary in the evolution of our lives.

Being who you are means respecting your needs, wants, interests and fears – the whole package and standing up for it even if it is inconvenient and uncomfortable. There will even be times when you will be unpopular or even misunderstood.

No one should ever doubt themselves, their worth or their value. Everyone is unique and beautiful in their own right and everyone is worth fighting for. To truly be that beautiful snowflake, you have to stand out in the cold. It’s easy to stay inside in the warmth. It’s harder to take a stand and defend who you are by taking the road less traveled. After all, the cold isn’t for everyone, but the cold will certainly attract just the right ones to you. Do you want to be like everyone else and take the easy way out or do you want to work hard to take a stand and be yourself? The rest of your life awaits your decision. Who will you be?

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
