Along the lines of our last blog post (singing and swinging into your perfectly fitting “slippers”), remember this: Imitation is death.
Why is that? Well, many reasons…some thoughts of which you could share that would be better than the ones we might have. But when you are trying to imitate the life or the talents or the style of another individual, you are starving that which was meant to be born from within you!
Have you heard of the concept of “turgidity”? When a plant’s turgidity is high, it means it has ample fluid hydrating its cells. When the turgidity is low, it simply means the plant is desperately thirsting for water.
Have you been starving your life’s cells pining for the mission, life call, or talents of another? We submit that when you take time to journal each day about your life, about the abundances you choose to notice, and about the good things you do, you will begin to water and feed your own “plant.” Your emotional, social, spiritual, and physical turgidity will increase.
And that, my friend, is a very good place to be. So go get happenin’ with that plant water for your soul!
