Hellooooo! It’s been so long, I know! Now, I’m sure most of you are thinking that I have been gallivanting around the countryside, sipping great wine and having wonderful adventures followed by great bubble baths and delicious cupcakes. You thought I was being amazing. That’s partly true.
The truth is, I wanted to. Over the summer, I tried to learn about the business side of writing (I probably need a refresher course). I was supposed to go to Italy. I was supposed to take a Viking Cruise in Europe. Well, life happened. And it wan’t all cupcakes. I did have a few amazing moments.
And then August came, and this is life as I know it now
Because, hey, I still have to finish my MA and start on my PhD, and that takes time. Who knew? And as my mother mused the other day, at this point in my life, none of my decisions are easy. Except for tonight. Tonight I am going to breathe.
And tonight I am going to take a break from my work to remind you that you are amazing.
In a world that is continually alternating immense violence with immediate gratification, there is a huge “call” coming from healers and spiritual leaders. We need to create change. We need to help others. We need to make a difference. We need to use our unique abilities to help heal the world.
But what if we have no idea what makes us special or unique? What if we have no idea how we can help create a better world for others?
What if I told you the answer was easier than creating a bubble bath?
HOW TO BE AMAZING
What if I told you that you just by being you, you are making the world better?
You can be brave if you want. You can be happy. You can also choose to be scared or worried or unhappy. Whatever you choose, it is your decision. And no matter what decision you make, as long as you are authentic, you are amazing because you are yourself as God (or Source, or the universe) intended.Just remember one fact: you are a gift.

No matter how you feel right now, you are a gift to this world during this very moment. No matter what others may say, the part of you that is unique is the part of you that has the power to inspire others. All you have to do is acknowledge this. And if you don’t know what that part is, relax. Ask yourself at night before you fall asleep. In the moment before you really wake up, the answer will come. If not, pay attention to your thoughts. You know yourself. You know your unique gifts.
All you have to do is be yourself.
Because you are amazing. You are capable of doing amazing things. You just have to choose. Remember that.
And if that doesn’t work, remember what Dr. Seuss (and Buddha) said: “To the world you may be one person, but to one person, you may be the world.” Someone’s (several someone’s) world is better, just because you are in it. A. MAZ. ING.
Now, if you want to be truly amazing, come over here and help me with my research paper in Rhetoric.
Just kidding! I’ll do my own paper. Maybe it will be amazing, too.
