My mother told me every day before I went to school, “Gillian, you were born for greatness. In every moment, you choose to add or take away from that greatness.” I did the math on how many times she must have said those words to me. It amounted to over 3,640 times.
I didn’t always know what she meant, and on more than one occasion I ‘took away’ from that greatness by making less than stellar choices. But that eventually changed. I realized a few things in my thirties (What can i say? It took me awhile). #1 My greatness is IN me, not out there; #2 Growing my greatness is my purpose; #3 Everyone was born for greatness; #4 Realizing your greatness does not detract from anyone else’s; #5 No one can diminish or detract from your greatness; and #6 Hiding or ignoring your greatness does a disservice to everyone.
My mom’s words were a gift. This blog is an exercise in letting everyone know what I know to be true. It is an exercise in growing my own greatness and my gift to you.
