“Despierta! Tu Puedes! Ahora!” read the last pages of my dad’s book Asi Piensan las Hormiguitas. It means: wake up, you can do it, now! They are brief but powerful words.
Sometimes we feel small and powerless. Sometimes we think the world is conspiring against us. Sometimes we might give up. But never forget, it is our choice. Surrender or conquer, it is up to us.
Within each of us there is a mighty T-Rex, I have learned this from Lucas. Our lives are a reflection of our connection to the power within. As Ralph Waldo Emerson so wonderfully put it: “What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.” Once we realize this our perspective will change for the better and so will our lives.
Today, on day 4 of gratitude fest, I am thankful for the giant within. I am grateful for all the times I fell and picked myself up. I am grateful for all the despair that lead to faith. I am thankful for all the times I was thought of as a mice only to prove myself a lion.
I invite you to let that powerful T-Rex roar. You are only as small as you think you are. So think BIG!
Despierta! Tu Puedes! Ahora!
