Be who you were created to be, not who they think you should be.
I was reminded yesterday morning, just how short life is, how, in a blink of an eye, you can take your last breath. I was reminded that there are no guarantees in life and in that we should always remain true to God, ourselves and then everyone and everything else.
This quote was inspired just by this:
It can become very easy to lose ourselves when fitting in is a thing we need to do or after a traumatic experience. We lose sight of who we really are because we allow the thoughts and feelings of others to consume us to a point where we become just like them.
Far too many times I see this and it always leaves an unsettling feeling within. I think I may have even fell victim to this at one point of my life; trying to fit in, please and gain likes.
I see people that would literally do anything, just to be validated and in many cases, by irrelevant people. Then, alas, they lose themselves to what people think they should be, act the way people say they should act and even think the way people programme them to think.
And then I ask myself Why? ‘Coz You’re beautiful as you are. You’re worthy as you are!
When you know something is wrong, you have an obligation to attempt to put it right.
If you see the world through your own eyes, you have nothing to be ashamed of.
If you like blue and all girls supposed to like pink, heck, own the damn blue lol.
Standing out by being yourself may ruffle a few feathers, it may cause people to dislike you but hey, ever heard the saying “those who matter don’t mind and those who mind don’t matter”? …
And I know It can be real hard sometimes, especially if you’re surrounded by the mediocre type who don’t know who they really are and resort to doing all sorts of things just to be validated.
But I say, always remind yourself of your purpose and your obligation to God first and if it’s all good between you and him, then you know you’re good.
Let the life you live be an example for those who follow you. No leader in history made it to the history books by being people they’re not, liked by everybody or silenced just for peace sake.
As our ever talented Kendrick would say: we got royalty, got loyalty inside our DNA!
So Sprinkle that YOUnique dust and don’t let anybody, dull that sparkle.
Love and light ya’ll
