True strength in showing up

So to me true strength is showing up no matter how it looks. I don’t show up here as anyone but myself and in life. Sometimes I act like I have my shit together more than I do. Sometimes I act like I don’t have my shit together as much as I do. I’m done acting. I’d rather just be okay with however together my shit is at the time, and still do my best to show up, as I am…..
Just show up as your are. You do not have to look or feel great. You do not have to be prepared for each challenge or know all the hows of every situation. You do not have to be fearless, or have all the answers, or be 100% ready. Nobody is any of these things. Nobody ever was. It is not about being perfect, at all. You just have to show up, as you are, despite all the objections and insecurities of your mind, despite each and every fear that threatens to hold you back, despite the limitations and criticisms others will place on you. To hell with it all. This is your life, your journey, your adventure and all it is asking of you is to show up for it, as you are. That is enough. That is more than enough. That is everything.
