Not even God has all the world believing, and still, never gave up on expressing Its beauty.
For those who are wondering what God has to do with traveling and discovering, let me share with you a story that will give you a hint.
While I have never been a people pleaser, and by contrary I have lived my life in ways, many time out of the social expectation, I just recently realized that I did so, many times from fear, fear of not being good enough to please the society.
Though I knew that, deep down, I have so many things to offer, I have never been courageous enough to put it to the toughest test: public opinion. So I have become a perfectionist, in a continuous struggle of surpassing my own self; a always not good enough, limited by my personal threshold expansion.
It took me years to realize that, what I thought as lack of confidence and extreme modesty, was in fact passing as pride and ego.
I have lifted myself on a pedestal I don’t belong, I refused to express myself, fearing an incomplete acceptance. I was oblivious and fulish.
I have ignored that with incomplete acceptance might come a partial appreciation, and with it, the fulfillment.
How many times we are afraid of showing our beauty, selfishly keeping for ourselves, the possibility of making a difference for the others!?!?!?
Expressing ourselves, our greatest passions and talents, should be a moral obligation; a responsibility towards the humanity.
Because,…. not even God has all the world believing, and still, never gave up on expressing Its beauty.
