“True humility is not about putting yourself down, and being self-effacing: when you are self-effacing, you are effacing the “image and likeness” and gifts of your source. With all due criticisms of narcissistic self-parading considered understood, I believe that true humility actually is self-displaying. Bring your talents forward and reveal your inner beauty, right on through the surface of brokenness and warts we all share. Humility is the courage to permit your shadows to be seen by all, because you are committed even more to defining, and refining, and shining the light within you.” Gil Hedley

Tonight I heard the words, from a guy whose opinion I really respect,  “Your life is going to be huge for you, Susan!” And the really wonderful thing about it is that he wasn’t speaking about anything specific, just my life and me within it.

So what do I do with a statement like that, uttered so unabashedly, with just a real genuine affection for me and who I am?

I wait in gratitude and see what each day brings.

I work hard and play even harder.

I PRACTICE COMPASSION FOR MYSELF AND OTHERS, each and every day, AND NEVER EVER LOSE HOPE! (an acronym for hold on, pain ends!)

I’m not afraid to shine anymore. My light serves me well.

Much love and gratitude to all of you!

Big Loving Namaste!

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
