Harness your greatness

{Whilst doing some yoga/meditation poolside in St Tropez this – the above – is what came to me. I immediatley went back up & googled who said the famous words – naughty I didn’t know – and wanted to share it with you to further ignite some of your own inspiration. Because after all} –
“who are you NOT to be great?” 
There I was. On the bus from Cannes to Toulon, quietly minding my own business, blissfully watching the beautiful surroundings outside whizz by me with Emelie Sande blasting in my ears when this song of her’s came on…”Read all about it”. This trip for me (& Morgs but I don’t speak for him) was about more than just seeing the world and soaking up different sights & sounds. It was about growth on the inside. It was about having time to devour books that inspired me. It was about finding ways to really be ok with living authentically. Learning how to be 100% true to myself and not letting any external factors like opinions of others & little thing called ego get in the way of that. I can happily say that I am definetley on the way to finding ways to do that, but it will be road that I constantly have to keep in check.
So how does the song come in to this? Well. Simple.
Read.those.lyrics – posted below.
Every single day, we try to live a certain way. We say certain things, or don’t say certain things, we have incredibly limiting beliefs (I’m fat, I’m not good enough, I can’t do that it’s too hard)…we subconciously or conciously conform to this way of living to fit in. To gain more friends, keep the friends we’ve got, be accepted by others, feel loved. Whatever it is you chase.
But what if you could live 100% authentically. What if you didn’t have to worry about what you said because it comes from a place of love. What if you could pursue your dreams with gusto and courage because you believed in yourself 100%?
I have been trying to find the music within me on this holiday. Flame it bright & bring it out. I don’t want the music to die within me and I’m having an incredibly journey along the way.
I’m currently writing a little somethin’ somethin’ for you, my lovely readers that will be put up that you can download (for free) once it’s finished that hopefully helps you do the above.
But what about you in the meantime? You have a story, You have beliefs, You have a  song inside of you….so stop biting your tongue. Don’t stay in silence for fear of what might occur – if you’re doing it from a place of love & authenticity.
So today, I really challenge you to step outside your comfort zone & do something that challenges you. Something that you always want to do but are too scared of doing it. That might even mean approaching a friend about the way they speak to you or telling your parents you love them if you rarely do as it’s just ‘not what you do’.
We’ve all got our lives to lead, our stories to be told, our dreams to chase.
& hopefully, you don’t let the music or song ever die within you.
Love & Light.
p.s These were the lyrics which inspired this piece – This is my own journey of life changes & living and one that I’ve been on for awhile now but when I heard this song I hoped sharing it might inspire you too.

You’ve got the words to change a nation
but you’re biting your tongue
You’ve spent a life time stuck in silence
afraid you’ll say something wrong
If no one ever hears it how we gonna learn your song?
So come, on come on
Come on, come on
You’ve got a heart as loud as lions
So why let your voice be tamed?
Baby we’re a little different
there’s no need to be ashamed
You’ve got the light to fight the shadows
so stop hiding it away
Come on, Come on

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream till the words dry out
so put it in all of the papers,
i’m not afraid
they can read all about it
read all about it oh

At night we’re waking up the neighbours
while we sing away the blues
making sure that we remember yeah
cause we all matter too
if the truth has been forbidden
then we’re breaking all the rules
so come on, come on
come on, come on,
lets get the tv and the radio
to play our tune again
its ’bout time we got some airplay of our version of events
