Beyoncé Knowles Carter shut Coachella down last night. Always a stellar performer and iconic inspiration, I realized one of the things I love most about the globally popular performer is her constant commitment to pushing herself. I like to think that everybody has an inner rockstar! Somewhere deep down inside, there is a more exciting, slightly exaggerated, more uninhibited side of you that is just waiting for the right occasion to be unleashed.
No we can’t all be Beyoncé but perhaps your dormant alter ego makes an appearance during karaoke, a big celebration, or a red carpet event. Either way, it’s important that we have some healthy outlet or forum to expand some aspect of ourselves. The experience changes our inner and outer perspective about ourselves, as well as what we see as possible in life. When it’s all said and done, one of life’s greatest gift treasures is personal growth.
Some extremely simple ways to release your inner Supernova may be: changing your hair (color, cut, style, or, all of it), or switching things up in your wardrobe with a new color or silhouette that you’ve never worn before. Perhaps, even experimenting with some out-of-the-box accessorizing will be just the thing. Other opportunities of exploration can come from trying new activities, enjoying new foods, and partaking in new friendships. To maximize the impact, combine them all. Whichever way you decide to stretch your capacity, do it with style and a bit of boldness.
For some, pushing yourself will become a ritual practiced daily or several times a month. For others, it will serve as a rare occurrence reserved only for very private or special occasions. Regardless of when, where, or how you decide to extend your personal margins, the practice of taking healthy risks will prove to enrich your life, providing you with fresh inspiration, exhilarating discovery, and invigorating rejuvenation. It’s okay to throw caution to the wind and live a little. You never know just what you’ll discover about yourself.
You may find that the very thing you’ve been looking for has been patiently waiting inside of you all along, to be revealed and celebrated. So go ahead… rock out! The world is waiting.
