Today, right now, right where you are, have appreciation for who you are. You are a unique individual, with gifts that only you can bring to the table. Don't compare and despair, look at the value you bring because it is vast and it is precious. Joseph Campbell tells us, "The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are." Give yourself as much love, compassion and forgiveness that you would give a loved one and you will bloom. Don't hide who you are any longer because Life waits for you. As Rumi so beautifully put it, "You have no need to go anywhere - journey within yourself. Enter a mine of rubies, and bath in the splendor of your own light."
