If you think you have challenges in life, you have to read this…
I was really struggling to choose a focus for today’s post. The theme is spirituality and I had so many options I was unable to pick just one. (I suffer from this same malady when I am faced with a large menu at a restaurant!!)
So I was killing time on Facebook, avoiding myself and the empty page, when I stumbled on this 15 minute video clip of Maysoon Zayid giving her TED talk. I hope you will take the time to watch; it will speak to your spirit and to your heart, and I hope you find it inspiring. (See link below)
The reason I feel compelled to share this on my blog, rather than simply on Facebook is because Maysoon embodies abundance; her joy shines through even as she talks about her challenges; she accepts her life and also wants more; she is willing to step outside her comfort zone into her life; she does not avoid the big issues, the uncomfortable conversations but when she talks about disability, hatred, discrimination she does so without self-pity.
For all these reasons Maysoon Zayid serves as the perfect role model for living an abundant life. It is time for each of us to accept who we are, live today, and step into our “brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous” life.
