There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it.
It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.
You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. … ~As quoted in The Life and Work of Martha Graham (1991) by Agnes de Mille.
This quote is worth copying and keeping handy throughout your day. It’s a great reminder to not think about what others are saying or doing, not judge yourself and your work, and to just get busy focusing on and manifesting what your heart and soul are longing to give to the world.
It’s what you came here to do. It’s your gift to the world. It’s valuable and it does make a difference! You may never know the profound impact your gift has on someone, but that is not for you to worry about. All you need to do is to follow your dreams—give your gift—so the world can be a better place.
Your homework today is to take the next step! Break it into small pieces—the smaller the better! This way, they easily fit into your schedule. Then make sure you do them!
Keep your eyes focused on where your heart and soul are leading you!
You can do it, I’m positive of it!
I’m so proud of you!
