Do you remember a time before life beat you up? Wide eyed and full of hope, you were sold a fairy tale of the perfect job, the perfect life, the picket fence. But you were knocked down. Again and again. And one too many times. So you decided that it was safer and less painful to stay small, along the way losing sight of your amazing gifts and talents.

No matter where you are on your journey – whether you’ve been knocked down once and are struggling to stand up, or whether you no longer even try to get up because life beat you up with too many knocks a long time ago. There is a small voice inside you that’s whispering – RISE UP! GET UP! BE BRAVE! FIND YOUR STRENGTH!

This is YOUR life. These are YOUR scars. Those are YOUR battles. And trying to pretend any different is just too much effort. You CAN march to the beat of your own drum, not the beat the world says you should. You got this.

Show Notes

So when life beats you up, remember these three things:

  1. Each one of us was born with gifts and talents, and with parts of us that are less than ideal.  
    • TOP TIP: Keep a journal tracker! For perspective.
  2. Ask those around what your superpowers are, and look back at your life to connect the dots.
  3. Fill your spaces with amazing songs and things from your childhood you loved to do.

What are you waiting for? Do it now! Reconnect with the joys of your soul. You are too strong to stay down. Too brave, too talented. So stop apologising for being the amazing human that God made you. March to the beat YOU drum, not to the beat the world says you should, because you were made for so much more.

Quotes from this episode

“When I see the strength and talent I know that lives in both those women from school and my oldest friends, I want to call into the hearts of each one of them, and myself, and tell them – God made YOU an amazing human.”
