Random question but, do you adore Doctor Who? Once upon a time, thanks to one of those conversations that, afterward, feel somewhat serendipitous, I found out that a higher than average percentage of lovely people around here are Whovians.
That delighted my little mind greatly but it also got me to thinking …
Is it a case of attracting like-minded people or more that, because I might randomly quote The Doctor from time to time, it then causes people to go “oooh, I love Doctor Who too!”?
I believe that life should be fun.
Sure, there will be times when it’s stressful or you have boring stuff to do but even then, I’d prefer to be like Mary Poppins and find the fun.
That’s probably why I get so stupidly delighted when I find out that yet another person around these parts is into Doctor Who. I mean, it’s not like it’s a requirement or anything (although it’d make for some fun marketing eh!) but it does make me smile.
So then I got to thinking some more about this idea of outing ourselves.
It’s tied to my love of you being youier of course. Where’s the fun in hiding those quirks and silly little things that make you you?
It drives my husband ever so slightly bonkers that I can not help but do foot jiggling, head bobbing and shoulder dancing, every time a slightly upbeat tune is played in a film but does that stop me?
It’s fun and it makes us both giggle.
And the same is true for you too. There will be things that make you, you that, for some people, will be a major problem. But do you know what? Life’s too short to waste time and energy on those people.
My biggest goal is for you to live a full-to-the-top-and-spilling-over life of joy, love and happiness.
That doesn’t come from dumbing down or playing small.
God created you to be you, in all areas of your life. There is nothing that makes him smile more than to see you being you. So full to the top with his love that it can’t help but leak out onto others.
This world needs you to be you.
God needs you to be you.
And so my challenge to you is this:
Look at where you are right now, the person you are showing up as. Is that you? Or are there parts of you that you keep safely stored away in a box?
It’s time to get really honest with ourselves. Are you game? 🙂
