Trying to comprehend the magnitude of your own gifts is like attempting to understand the vastness of the stars.
For every speck of light that we see, there are trillions more that have burned just as fiercely. Universes of fire and light beyond knowing.
You are infinite.
Trying to articulate the effect you have on others is like trying to grasp the scope of the forests’ influence on our world.
Their majesty fills our lungs, they act as home to all manner of creatures, they create life through their decay and bring beauty through their life. Their touch has been felt by every organism on earth since the beginning of time.
You have no idea how many people you impact.
Trying to fight who you are is as futile as trying to contain the oceans.
Why would you want to limit the vibrant cacophony of life that is the sea? It would be a shame to deprive the world of the thunderous storms and calming waves that move us all.
You are beautiful in all that you are.
And when you take the time to appreciate the unstoppable, fantastical force that you are . . . you begin to see that everyone you meet contains their own unique universes of beauty and grandeur.
That is the radical act of love the world so desperately needs.
And it begins with you.
