Consecrate. Sanctify. Bless. Ordain. Hallow. Honour. Enjoin.
Most of the time we are searching for external sources to anoint us. A bishop. A belief. A balm.
Most of the time we underplay our internal resources that can anoint us. A belief. A bias. A boldness.
As we grow in understanding ourselves and ourselves in the world we realise that outside blessings matter but those that come from within matter above all.
We don't need to seek permission outside of us to thrive, commit, serve, connect and create.
