Your Participation Is Required Too

Because you matter too.

Because you matter too. Because Life would not be the same without you. Which is why you are here. Because your participation is required too.

To share your presence. So others can feel it too.

To give of who you are. So others can receive it too.

To receive everything Life has to offer. So others can see how they are allowed to do it too.

Which is why your participation is required. Because all Life wants you to do is live your life being you.


We all learn to think we need to be more than who we already are. I learned to think I needed to be more that who I am already am too.

And I have spent my entire life releasing every thought I learned that made me think this way. Because it never made sense to me.

It just never made sense to let someone else tell me how I should live my life. What I should do with my time. How I should be. What I should wear. What I should eat.

Because I have been given the gift too. The gift of who I am. And you have been given the gift too.

A gift that was meant to be shared. Meant to be lived. Meant to be experienced. Meant to be received.

And the best way to receive the gift we have all been given is to participate. Participate in Life. And you participate when you are sharing who you are. And what you simply know you were meant to do.

I know I was meant to share my presence through my words and my voice, my smile and my joy.

And you know how you were meant to share your presence too. You just do. Because you are still you.

You can keep fighting it with a thought. A thought that makes you think it is too late, you don’t have enough time, you will just wait a few more years. But you will never stop being you.

And the world needs you. And your participation too. And all you need to do is GET OUT.

Get out of your own head and get back into Life.

Get out of your own bed and get back to doing all the things you love.

Get out of your own thoughts and get back to being inspired and moved.

Get out of your own negative self-talk and get back to nature and daily walks.

The world needs you too. Because only you can do what only you can do. Be who you are. Which is why your participation is required too.


My name is Isabel Mar and I am your gentle guide back to you. Who you are. Not who you think you should be.
