New Clothes

New Clothes

How perfect it is that we are born naked and vulnerable so that we may learn how to be properly clothed. The clothing of our lives is not meant in a literal sense, although we are required as human beings to be clothed according to our culture, environment, and standards. I am talking about the clothing of who we are meant to be. The clothing we discover in our lives is the core value we accept of our uniqueness and magnificence, and anything less will give us the feeling of being drained and disconnected. A closet filled with clothes from the past as well as the clothes of the future feels stuffed, weighed down like the beggar who had new beautiful clothes yet still carried his old rags around.

If you are already in a phase of doubting that the life you desire is possible, then volunteer to help a teacher in a kindergarten, work a week in a summer camp, or spend other quality time with little kids and ask them, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”

The answers will be pretty awesome: a famous dancer, the president, a schoolteacher, a princess, a leader who can end hunger, and so many more. Within every child is the desire to be clothed with an amazing destiny. None of them hesitate as they declare, “This is why I came here.” At a young age we believe, “I do not know how it can happen, but I know what I want to happen.
