We all have a magic inside us, one that is truly our own. This is our superpower, our change-the-world talent.
Many times, we don’t recognize our own magic because we’re too busy trying to imitate the magic of others. Sometimes, we get so wrapped up in someone else’s story that we forget the work it takes to script our own.
I grew up in a town where you had to call someone if you wanted to talk, and if they didn’t have a phone you had to actually utilize some form of locomotion to see them in person. In other words, connecting wasn’t constant or easy, thus we didn’t take it for granted.
When I got older I used my Creation Book to send quick messages to my friends. My mom had her messenger bees. Yet, interacting was reserved for real life.
We weren’t in each other’s business all the time. We had time to focus on our own stuff. Other people didn’t occupy our minutes, nor did they live rent free in our minds. Thus, we didn’t get all confused over whose life we were living.
If you want to discover YOUR magic, you first have to discover YOU. What are YOU all about—what are you good at?
Spend time learning.
Spend time doing.
Think for yourself.
Seek to be an original not an imitator of someone else’s glory. Strive to shine with your own light. Soar with the power that only you possess.
Discover your magic then use it to create wonder.
The stage is set.
The lights are on.
The cue’s been given.
