Words can be very powerful. Words can go beyond describing the world but actually they can create worlds.
I wanted to share a little story with you today about how a simple word transformed my perspective and became a guiding principle in my life. It all started in the early 90’s.
During a phone conversation with one of my mentors, he casually mentioned the word "messable with." It was just a passing comment, but something about that phrase resonated deeply within me. It captured the essence of what I had been striving for—being able to stay true to what I was creating no matter what life threw at me, no matter who I was interacting with, no matter what circumstances I was dealing with.
That moment sparked a fire within me, and I instantly knew that "unmessablewith" was the phrase I had been searching for. It encapsulated the “space” I had been pointing to. A space of being able to create and fulfill any dream, unshakable, unhookable, undauntable, in the face of ANYTHING. It became my “word”.
I was so captivated by the power of this word that I couldn't help but build an entire world around it. I got it recognized in the urban dictionary, and I began creating merchandise like mugs, t-shirts, pens, and wristbands—all proudly bearing the words "unmessablewith." It was my way of sharing this empowering concept with others and inviting them to embrace and develop their own “unmessablewithness”.
Being "unmessablewith" doesn't mean being invincible or unaffected by life's ups and downs. It means having the inner fortitude to rise above circumstances, to stay true to your vision and purpose, and to navigate challenges with grace and resilience. It's about reclaiming your power and creating your own narrative moment to moment.
Now, I invite you to reflect on your own journey. Are there moments when you have felt "messablewith"? Have there been instances where external influences or negative self-talk have affected your belief in yourself and your abilities? Take a moment to acknowledge those moments, for it is in telling the truth that we can find the power to transcend.
Embracing the world of being "unmessablewith" is a powerful shift in context and therefore perspective. It empowers us to take ownership of our lives and become the creators of our own experience, now and now and now. Remember, you have within you the strength, resilience, and unwavering spirit to be truly "unmessablewith." Embrace it, develop it, and watch as it transforms your life in extraordinary ways.
