Above is an image of a Purple Gallinule hiding in the plants. The bird is a beautiful colorful bird but it has chosen to hide itself. We tend to do the same thing as the Gallinule, we hide our true selves from others. It may be the fear of being hurt, it may be we are afraid to show others our true self or the harsh judgement of others, but we hide in the long foliage of life. Part of our life's journey is to bring our true selves to the forefront. It is never easy to step our from our cover, but we will never be who we are meant to be unless we show our hidden beautiful self. Start slow, but let it shine, YOUR HIDDEN SELF!"
