Do you really own it? Have you put your stamp on it? Made it ‘your own’? Worn confidence whilst in a room full of doubt? So, what helps us ‘own it’? (click fingers and shouts out GIRLFRIEND)
The other evening, whilst trying to hear ourselves speak through pumping music, at a birthday party, our conversation turned to the importance of the idiom “owning it.” We realised that owning it — honouring ourselves and acknowledging our unique identity, talents, skills, desires, fears, and neurotic tendencies — sums up how we can all go about living a life that is full and filled with integrity — in all areas of our existence and covering each element that forms our day to day life.
Owning our individual needs, desires, skills and even insecurities allows us to see the value of setting intentions for ourselves and our actions, and working toward a sense of self-definition, I am ‘ME’ and I will own ‘ME’ and all that comes with it…warts and all……(especially the warts).
At that point, we were discussing the delightful subject on many ladies lips (and hips), ‘Now it’s all about the MAS’ otherwise known as Middle Age Spread, this led to a few self-negative comments, some frustration over regular exercising and weight fluctuation plus a genuine feeling of ‘argghhhh’, which I believe is the official term for the condition.
At this point the ‘owning it’ conversation came up, how I would strongly recommend anyone feeling open to insecurity, change and undergoing a slight expansion, is to own the person you are now. See your own potential, work as your own advocate, and as an agent of self-empowerment. (clicks fingers again)
Most experiences in life that inspire and motivate us to learn, grow, and thrive, can also be challenging and a little terrifying. When we’re presented with an unfamiliar situation (MAS) does it inspire us? Does it motivate us? Does it confuse us? Well, that’s all dependent to the individual concerned, but whilst you are working out which emotion to opt for, how about ‘owning it’ for the foreseeable future and make it part of you, rather than the enemy.
You may not be ready to deal with the emotion or the MAS, but maybe you are up for a challenge. In that case, acknowledge your fear, but go forward with courage. We have a natural tendency to shy away from fully acknowledging — owning it — there’s no doubt that it takes guts to step up to the plate and make a statement about who you are, what you want, and what you have. You have guts, just own it.
