When I present SerenDestiny programs, people often ask, "Isn't it selfish to do what you really want?" I tell them, "it is if you exclude everyone else's needs and priorities.
But many of us are doing the opposite of that.
We're honoring everyone else's needs and priorities and ignoring our own."
As Rumi said, "Don't you know yet? Is is YOUR light that lights the world.
This is probably one of the most important lessons-learned from my Year by the Water ... It is not selfish to put ourselves in our own story, it's smart.
It is not an indulgence to do what puts the light on in your eyes and fills you with joy - it is an example that inspires others to do the same.
In fact, here's how I learned that lesson.
Hope it inspires you to shine your light on and in the world.
