The meaning of life!
‘The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away. “ Pablo Picasso
Christmas time is the time of year when we seem to be obsessed with gifts. Where to find the perfect gift? Online, offline, on the high street, not on the high street….the possibilities are endless. We seem to put an enormous amount of time, energy and finances into these important decisions and of course it is lovely to give gifts and receive them during the festive period.
However, we are often so focused on finding those perfect material gifts for others that we forget to look for and recognise the unique gifts we have inside ourselves
to give and share with others.
“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” Michelangelo
Michelangelo believed that in each stone he worked with there was a figure inside waiting to be revealed. As a master sculptor he saw his job was to clear away what was not the image in order to reveal the masterpiece inside.
In the same way, we are the master sculptors of our own life. We have the ability to pick up the tools and start chiselling away at all that is not the true ‘us’. By facing our fears, blocks and negative stories and learning how to successfully let them go, we find ourselves getting closer to finding our true gift.
Everyone has a gift. It is found where our values, passions and strengths meet. Using an inspiration journal can really help us dig deep and uncover these beautiful nuggets and gems. By committing to recording this journey, we can release worries, dream big and connect to our true unique gifts and potential.
As we head towards another New Year, why not decide to make 2016 the year you carve your angel from the marble. By honouring and sculpting yourself, you can give this greatest gift to your loved ones at anytime, not just at Christmas.
