Today in America, there is so much excess.
Excess stuff, Excess technology, Excess Hate, Excess Fear, Excess media, Excess mulling about in other people’s business.
We find ourselves bombarded by media, by news, by socialites of the world, by good, by bad, by so much filtering, and we find ourselves believe WE are inadequate.
We see things happen around Us, and we fail to react, we fail to feel. We are too busy wondering what if, what if they hear me, see me, know me, talk about me…
SO WHAT?! let people talk, let people see, let people hear, YOU are amazing, You are Unique, you are the only YOU there is. If you deprive the world of your beautiful and unique essence how will there ever be record of YOU. Live your live, love people, love Yourself, Let people hear you speak, sing, laugh, argue, fight, let people See you dance, talk, perform, chat, Let the world experience you. I assure you in reality the vast majority of people around you are far too self involved to care what you do, but for those few people who remain Connected to People and not technology, they will get to experience ALL that you are and will be better people for it.
I was never one to speak up, act out, participate in things where I may be seen, yet I have been put in places and positions where Everyone notices me. One thing I can share is sometimes it still makes me uneasy and weirded out, but so many more times it comes back to me in waves of positivity, people touched by my words, songs, encouragement, leadership.
id never dreamed of being where I am, or ever even starting to write a blog like I did years ago. Sure a few people only view it, but still expressing my thoughts where someone else can comment on them, was never my move. it was never my plan, sometimes we have to go out into the world and move mountains, be the change, make the change. Sometimes we have to be bold enough to Choose to be OURSELVES, not some carbon copy of someone else.
Choose to be YOU always and forever, there is no one better.
Some may be quicker, wittier, smarter, but NONE will ever have the essence that you bring and that brings people Joy. If you were different you’d probably have different people in your life, those who are near you love you for YOU. So keep being that person.
