Ever heard people say, "You're going to be the next...___"?

I'm reminded today after spending time this morning with the gorgeous @jessbell_holisticwellness about how in my early 20s I experienced many people telling me I was going to be the next Brooke Fraser (a Christian singer).

At the time, I was bowing down to the expectations of others and heading in the direction of a 3-month Christian music school with the intention of returning home to join the 'worship band' at my local church. But I was dying inside.

I didn't want to be the next anybody.... I just wanted to be the first ME.

Don't get me wrong, @brookefraser is a beautiful singer-songwriter and it was a huge compliment to be considered amongst artists of her calibre, but I was so drained by feeling like I had to live up to other people's expectations.

Thankfully within a year of attending that 3-month music school, I was following my heart and moving across the world to Australia.

It was the biggest 'risk' I'd taken up until that point in my life, and deep down I knew it was the truest choice I had ever made.

I faced the fears of being rejected by my family and my community, and stepped into a whole new world with a partner I'd only known for few months and onto a continent where I didn't know a single person.

I am beyond grateful for the courage and tenacity that guided me to take such a big leap in my life. I wouldn't be where I am today if I'd continued to live a life of obligation and 'Christian duty'.

I am also grateful for my upbringing and foundation, because it provided me with a place from which to launch myself into the world and the ability to seek out truth.

I am more myself than I ever have been... and on the precipice of stepping out into a part of myself that's existed many in my interpersonal world. But Spirit is guiding me to drop the veil on this one too, and allow myself to be even more fully seen.

The world needs YOU exactly as you are with the gifts, experiences and passions that only you possess. You will never be the next somebody else... even if you tried.

It's time to be fully you!

And I'm here for it!
