Perspective is a curious thing. I love this Rumi Quote because it turns our thoughts about ourselves upside down, in a good way. What if you are not insignificant? What if you, in fact, are connected to everything and everything was connected to you and through you? That you are a unique conduit of the energy of the Universe?
I think about this often. How do I recognize the gifts I have to offer the world and then share those gifts in a meaningful way? I believe that we each have a unique gift to offer that would improve the world if only we would name it and work to develop it. And our job, in some respect, is to recognize this in ourselves and to look for it in others. It’s about becoming confident inside so that we feel empowered to be authentically confident on the outside.
