People say they don't like to be used all the time but is that really true?
I mean, think of a bike or a chair. It's job is, really, to be used for riding or sitting. My bike loves taking me on rides and the chairs in my house love to be sat in. Now imagine being a bike that no one ever rode… Isn't that sad?
What if you're the same way? What if being used for your talents is actually fun for you? Not wrong and not something you expect to be paid for?
I have a friend who is "using me" for my writing ability and I LOVE IT! It's like, finally, someone is acknowledging me for something I love to do! What if you didn't resist being "used?"
The thing is, I write because I enjoy it. I mean, I write, here even, not expecting anyone to ever see it or care about it or consider it. I just do it because I like to do it. If you're seeing this and like it, I'm delightfully surprised.
What are you refusing to do because you're waiting for someone to validate it first? That's craycray! I say, just do it because you want to and see what shows up.
See, when you function from what's fun for you, it will touch lives. But it's never the other way around. It's never about touching lives first. It's about being you, doing what you love. That's what attracts people. Or not. But it doesn't matter because you're having fun!
Lit and Comp teacher gone rogue, disguised now as a Living and Relationship Coach, Body Worker, and Access Consciousness Facilitator, I still sneak off to write because, well, it makes me come alive and it's one of the joyful ways I create the future.
