What Is Your Essence?


I am going to bed tonight wondering what Spring and Summer will be like. One of our favourite things during these two precious seasons is taking long road trips. Going through my FB memories tonight I came across this post and photo from last year. I thought I would share it because it is even more relevant to our lives right now. Regardless of what is happening in the world, the most precious gift which you can give to yourself, is to live your essence.

Long road trips give me time to think, reflect and humor myself with so many great ideas that may take more than one lifetime to accomplish. Today, I found myself thinking of the word 'essence' while driving.

What is the essence of my being?

What is the essence of life?

What is your essence?

And in the middle of this thought provoking question, three words jumped at me:

Limitless. Ageless. Timeless.

The words hit my cerebral space so hard that I had to pull to the side of the road for a few minutes to allow my body to connect with my mind and soul. Yes, I want to be limitless in this life...to be bold enough to be the person God made me to be. Yes, I am ageless...still this girl who embraces life and is as crazy as her 16 year old self. Yes, my essence is timeless... my soul is eternal.

This photo marks this priceless, soulful moment...and reaffirms that what we seek, seeks us. As I reflect on all what I have done in the last year, I know that I have been living my essence.

What is your essence?

How do you represent your essence in this world?
