Hope for the Elusive Actress

Hope for the Elusive Actress
Wake Up to Live with Desiree Leigh
Have you lied and lied and lied to yourself so much that you don't know who you are or what your truth is? Have you been the most elusive actress to yourself and others that your truth is no where to be found or no where in sight? Have you been that pretender that okay, aha, yes ma'am, yes sir, so loving and pleasing person yet minimizing or demeaning your own beauty and talents?

If you have, how many more days or years are you going to lie to yourself? What is it going to take to change your life and 'give' others your message? What if you only had one year left to live? Really! What if? Can you imagine that? Truly imagine that? Do you want to continue to live in pain, hurt and grief your whole life? Do you want to create your own illnesses? Do you really want to escape forever?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then I ask you another question. Why are you here? What do you feel your purpose is? Do you really believe, deep in your heart, that you don't have a purpose? Can you really say from the tip of your toes to the top of your head, from one end of the world to the other end of the world, and to all the stars in all of the galaxies in the universe that you have no purpose? No reason for being?

Well, I have been in this position. I was the elusive actress, as I call her.  I know what it's like to feel like there is nothing left. To pretend who you are. To want to escape the world. Thinking there is no purpose or reason for being. But the first thing you must do with the feelings of despair, is find hope. When there is hope there is light, and without it it's hard to move forward and lift the darkness.

Do you believe things can change? I do. I especially do now. What will it take for you to believe in your life, in you? Your purpose? Your message for others? And our lives together on this earth? Because without you, we lose a piece of us. We are part of each other. We are all part of the whole.

Do you really know and understand how significant, unique and important you are? Because you really are. You're special like everyone else and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Wake Up to Live with Desiree Leigh

Wake Up to Live is about awareness in every aspect.  Waking up to live life is about questioning the social norms and the things that feel uncomfortable to talk about.  Wake Up to Live is about becoming awake to our biases, prejudices, and injustices. Waking up to live life is about waking up from unconsciousness to see what is really true.  Although waking up to live life with awareness and clarity may be difficult to do because now we must begin to make the hard choices, we must strive to Wake Up to Live and be responsible for our actions and the actions of others.  We are in this life together!
