Let’s flip the script a little bit. ⠀ ⠀ You see, I’m willing to bet that at some point, someone out there told you that you were too much. ⠀ ⠀ Too loud. Too emotional.Too flamboyant. ⠀ Too demanding. ⠀ Too hard to handle.⠀ Too wild.⠀ ⠀ stay small. ⠀ get quiet. ⠀ hush, girl. ⠀ shrink down. ⠀ stay back. ⠀ not so fast. ⠀ not that big. not like that.⠀ not right now.⠀ ⠀ But despite all those voices that push in unwanted from the outside and that battle for your attention from inside, that burning drive love, to make art, to sing your wild song, to live your full self – it keeps pulsing and burning.⠀ ⠀ Eventually – it demands your attention.⠀ ⠀ So listen closely, I’m going to tell you something very important. ⠀ ⠀ If someone tells you that you are too much for them, the only truth you need to remember is this: ⠀ ⠀ *** It is highly likely that they are not now, and never could have been, nearly enough for you. ***⠀ ⠀ Grab back the pen. Rewrite the narrative. Take control of the story. ⠀ ⠀ This is YOUR life. Nobody else can live it and nobody else can write it but you. ⠀ ⠀ And anyone who tries…well – they have no idea who they are dealing with. But I do. I see you. I hear you. Your words and your songs and your glittering heart. ⠀ ⠀ You take all that too much and you go out into the world and you do what you do best. Be You. As Is. Glorious.Exactly, entirely, infinitely, perfectly YOU ⠀ ⠀ *******⠀ ⠀ YOU ARE NOT TOO MUCH: Love Notes of Heartache, Redemption & Reclamation is available for pre-order now by clicking the image above.⠀ bit.ly/nottoomuch
