DAY 11: The ART of GREATNESS

Day 11:  the Art of the day was greatness...

I say was because, the revelation hit me so hard yesterday that my fingers sat frozen at the keys.  Hence, the delayed post...

Could I really take it there?  I mean, this was so close to my chest...*long sigh*

A few weeks ago, I had a deep, emotional and tear-filled conversation with my mentor stemming from a haze of confusion and frustration about what I truly wanted to do in life.  

I wasn't sure what the next great thing I wanted to do was.  I was stagnate.  A feeling that does not suit my personality well.  Sure, I like to chill, ponder, contemplate life and what not but, that's usually after the great thing takes place.
  
I had been racking up accomplishments like a hoarder.  Accomplishments were synonymous with love in my world,  so much so, that my self esteem was based solely on and firmly rooted in my accomplishments.

It wasn't until yesterday, as I was reading case studies on the link between disease and emotions, that the conversation I had with my mentor about greatness made even more sense.  She helped me come to realize the fundamental flaw in my understanding of what made things great.  
My lil' sister Jazzy, on her 15th Birthday.  She is such a great sister!

I believed that greatness was outwardly attached and tangled up with the things we do.  After all, if one does great things, surely one is great, right?  Can you imagine what someone (me) would think of themselves if they stopped doing great things??  That's right!  Someone, (me) might (would) think they were not so great...yikes!  No wonder why I was feeling down.  There was no recent accomplishment (so I thought) to squeeze the love from.

Now, as a 31-derful adult, I am celebrating a season of TRUTH and LIGHT.  No longer in the dark, I can loudly shout, I AM GREAT!  I am great because I was made to be so.  That's it.  I could sit here and never reach another goal or impact another life and I would still be great.  

Greatness is a state of being... not doing.  I AM GREAT, and like my mentor said, "out of this greatness comes great things."   If no one has told you, or you have yet to tell yourself, I'll tell you.  You are great too!
