- Know who YOU are! Self-worth is not ascribed to us by anyone other than the One who created us. Everything we have within us that composes who WE are did not come from anyone nor anything here on this earth. It came with US!Therefore, it cannot be taken away, it cannot be forbidden, it needs no introduction, it requires no validation - it only mandates that it is put into practice! Validation comes when we step into our divine 'Purpose' and illuminate in and through revelation. Every step leading up to this is invaluable. It is at this point it is revealed that we can go it alone (without the validation of others) to accomplish divine assignment.
- Priceless jewels are guarded! Once a rare and priceless jewel has been discovered it quickly becomes guarded. A rare jewel does not lose its value because it is not placed on public display (anybody remember Ms. Elizabeth Taylor? Even though she revealed her collection of exquisite jewels prior to her death, it was not available to the public except through broadcast television and no one handled that collection except Ms. Taylor).
So it is with us...not one person is a duplicate of the other. We are divine and we administrate a divine agenda. We are rare. We are priceless. We are distinguished. Get this now, we illuminate when we stand on our designated platforms to achieve our missions. We do not have to fight and push and lie and manipulate for our significance - it's already there! Realizing it is the difficult part.

- Being at peace within ourselves as we journey the paths. Remember when we were school age? Remember being in the classroom with your hand raised high and excitedly waving at the teacher to be chosen to answer a question, or to assist in completing a project? Remember how it felt to not be chosen for that particular task? Did it feel as though the teacher "didn't like" me or you at the time? Just because we aren't chosen for various projects, or included in meaningful events that occur within our connected circles does not mean we are less relevant; insignificant to those whom it matters most.What this means is the time for sharpening our tools to reach and uplift humankind should be taking place. The time needed for restoration to build momentum and gain traction to continue this journey must happen (or we're headed for serious burn out). This time lends itself to growing, developing, expanding, broadening, reflecting, shaping, and above all, mastering the innate gifts given to us to wisely use for their purposed end - lifting humanity. We do not have to be on "every" set. Every team. Every project. Every committee. Every anything. But we do have to be READY when called upon. Be at peace with that!
