Day Twenty Eight – Be You

posted by Melanie Lutz

Being precedes the doing.  So today is the day to be in touch with the present.  To love well. To be well.

My first mentor taught me ‘don’t try to be better than your competitors try to be better than yourself.  It brings to mind the quote from my dear friend’s support group for the Mother’s of Down Syndrome children, who has the most beautiful son named Gideon… “normal is a cycle on the washing machine.”

Heck YEAH!  Normality is a function of whoever is the perceiver and has no bearing on the truth.

Who’s to know anything.  Each life touches so many others in so many ways what you think is your greatest challenge can be your greatest blessing.

Who’s to say.

Let’s take today to own all of it.

Be you.  All of you.
Own what you know. 
Know where you stand. 
Share the message when you can.  

In the light of remembering to be all of you.  You might need a little reminder that you don’t do it alone.  Enjoy CeCe Winans and Yolanda Adams singing Count on Me at the Grammy tribute to Whitney Huston… what a song, such a great message and a beautifully produced tribute that resonates…

Count on me through thick and thin
A friendship that will never end
When you are weak I will be strong
Helping you to carry on
Call on me, I will be there
Don’t be afraid
Please believe me when I say
Count on me

smiles,

Melanie
