We all long to be the hero/heroine of our story. The problem is that we forget we are also the author of our own life story.
Most of us want to be respected and admired, or at least valued and accepted for who we are.
We yearn for our true worth to shine, yet we often struggle in production.
We seldom give it all we’ve got because we’re afraid we won’t shine as brightly as others in our field.
Or worse, we’re afraid we’ll have to stand alone. When we’re not crowded we have room to grow. Sometimes those of us who stand alone shine the brightest of all.
While it’s true we don’t have complete control of all life circumstances and our resources might be limited, we do have the power to make choices. Even the caboose can be the conductor of his train.
Though you might feel like you’re pushing your way through life in a constant uphill battle. Use that strength and stamina to the best of your ability.
We might not be the little red caboose that saves the train from rolling down the mountain, but we each can be the little red caboose of our own story. Be the hero in your life.
Recognize your talents. Trust yourself to use them. Hone your gifts.
You are powerful.
You are awesome.
Push that train over the mountain!
Shine, baby, shine!
