Belonging is an inside job. While we are all different in one way or another, we are all the same in many ways, too! What you focus on is what you will find.
For instance, most of the time, I feel rather isolated and like I don’t fit here – on this planet, in this population, or in this lifetime. If I choose to focus on that, I will be isolated and completely divergent from anyone else regardless of the size of the group or where I am.
I can choose differently! I can choose to focus on the thread of humanity that connects us all. I can choose to focus on the energetic wave that envelopes us all. I can be part of something bigger than myself – adding that different aspect of myself to the mix of all the voices and energies that are there in a loving, giving, and contributory way. I can belong.
Participation in life is key. Are you willing to participate in the life you’ve been blessed with and willing to be part of something bigger than you? Take a risk. Show up. Be present. Engage. Participate. Belong. You are here for a reason and I am blessed by your presence.
