What are you Giving Birth to This Labor Day?

Labor Day is a phenomenal opportunity to rest, rejuvenate and recommit ourselves to the labors of love we call our life's work. No matter what your calling, this is a day to commemorate all that you've put into living life on purpose and it's also a day to evaluate what it is you are now conceiving and carrying and birthing in your life.

To reach your highest potential means to connect with who you really are by serving the world in all of the ways you were sent here to serve. The first step is DISCOVERY. Key to discovering or rediscovering your calling comes in making you a priority in your own life. Many people are afraid to be alone. Make no mistake. You are NEVER alone. Wherever you go, there you are and, if you're feeling lonely, it can only mean one thing: you don't like the company you're keeping, namely you.

This Labor Day, reconnect to the you that is fabulous, loving, kind, amazing to watch, endearing to listen to and extraordinary to be around. Rediscover who that is so you can move into the next step which is RELEASE. Before deciding what direction you're going in, you have to be willing to release ALL expectations of what you "should" be doing. Everyone comes here with a multitude of gifts and talents that can lend themselves to any number of professions and callings. Once you are willing to release your hold on what you "should" be doing, you qickly learn a life altering truth: you don't choose your calling; your calling chooses you. You'll know which one to do next because it will choose you.

The third step is TRANSFORMATION. The moment you choose you and open your life up to all the possibilities of your calling, a transformation takes place. It is constant, imposing and transfiguring. All of a sudden, you are all of you; greater than you ever thought yourself to be and, yet, more connected to everyone and everything in a way that surpasses understanding. You see the beauty in everything. You learn not to sweat the small stuff. You trust your intuition and know that life is bigger than you. In this place, you bloom like a flower and your light shines for all to see. It's the beginning of a new way of seeing life that you gave birth to.

Sometimes, this process takes 9 months. Other times, 9 years. This Labor Day, decide that this is a process that will not take you a lifetime to deliver. DRT- Discovery, Release, and Transformation. Choose it now! Start by choosing you!
