Bring yourself

We all know those occasions when friends invite us round and we ask “What shall I bring?“ When their response is “Oh, just bring yourself“… What happens next?

I suspect I’m not alone in feeling a little exposed, even if for a moment. Just me… Can’t I bring something to contribute to the occasion… Am I really enough?

In our daily endeavours to be the change we want to see, I wonder if we get stuck in the “is that really enough“ cycle. Perversely that’s more likely to hold us in our current patterns of belief and behaviour than spur us on.

So how can we disrupt ourselves today? Even if it’s just small acts of creativity – doing the normal differently – that would enable us to bring ourselves more fully.

Enjoy the experiment!
