“You and I were created to be FREE: Unique and Amazing” – Elder Helen Payne

One morning I woke up and realized I had been living my life in a box, waiting for someone else to take the top off and let me out. I dressed all pretty on the outside with makeup, weave in my hair, my high heel shoes on, and an outfit that would knock you out. I made sure to keep a smile on my face; took pride in my entrepreneurship; and kept up the appearances of having it all together. Yet, I was still in a ‘Box’.

You see, this box caused me to settle. It caused me to be fearful which only allowed me to just survive. It was a place of ‘what if I can’t’.

On this morning, I looked in the mirror and heard a voice say, “You’ve been in the ‘Box’ long enough, it’s time to ‘Break Out’. To be AMAZING.”

So here I am exploring life outside the box. No longer waiting for family, friends or my circle of peers to open the lid. I will no longer be limited and caged by that pretty place of false comfort anymore.

If I can do it, you can too.

You and I were created to be FREE: Unique and Amazing.

My newfound freedom gave me a confidence which ignited my passions and brought my dreams to life. I became successful and my ‘what if I can’t’ changed to “I know I can”.

I encourage you today, to wake up and let the SPARK within you begin.

You are AMAZING!
