I was at the North Devon Show a few weeks ago and a guy bumped into a lady. She apologised…. As she walked away she turned to her partner and said “why did I said sorry when someone bumped into me?” he, and I, at the same time said “because we are British”
Apologising does seem to be a very British thing.
Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with being apologetic and it is quite courteous to apologise at times.
What I wanted to blog about more today was not being apologetic for who you are (I don’t mean go around being rude and then saying “well it’s who I am”…. !)
Each and every one of us is unique (we are also, all, exactly the same, but paradoxes might be a subject for another day…. For today’s purpose we are unique)
We have our own likes, dislike, pet peeves, we adore some people and hate others, we have our mannerisms, our sayings, our sense of humour and many other things that we recognise as our ‘personality’.
We also have our dreams, the things we wish we could do with our lives that we haven’t yet or the challenges we want to overcome. These are the thing that makes us, us.. the things that make me ‘Beccy’
When we truly understand our nature…. That we are spiritual beings having a human experience, that nothing that we do or don’t do, that nothing that we like or don’t like, that nothing we achieve or don’t achieve, can take away from the deeper spiritual part of us…. we are free to be the person we most want to be.
Whatever our dreams maybe, whatever we want to do with our lives that we haven’t yet. Nothing is impossible, because nothing we do or don’t do changes who we are beyond this life, nothing can take away our true spiritual nature.
So, don’t apologise for who you, what your dreams are or even what you haven’t yet done (even if you never do it!) but know that if you have a dream, take a leap of faith and see what comes…. Because even it never comes to what you expect it will, you are still an incredible being, the creative essence of the entire universe in form and no apology is ever needed for that!
