The jewels within us

The jewels within us

“The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.” ~Elizabeth Gilbert

Have you sought out and embraced the jewels buried within yourself? They’re there in all of us, and the world is waiting for us to find them and share them.

Sharing your gifts

“It is not a question of whether you “have what it takes,” but of whether you take the gifts you have — they are plenteous — and share them with all the world.” ~Neale Donald Walsch

It’s so tempting to think that we have is not enough—not good enough, not big enough, not perfect enough—to be of value, but that’s just fear speaking. The truth is that we are all born with gifts that are exactly what the world needs. Our job is to be courageous enough to share them.

Begging for crusts

“There is a basket of fresh bread on your head, yet you go door to door asking for crusts.” ~Rumi

How often we ignore the gifts and treasures we already have in our lives, our talents, our relationships, our character, and instead we go begging for pale imitations from others thinking we are only worthy of scraps. We already have so much inside us and around us if we would only take the time to seek it and treasure it.
