I strongly believe many people walking around this planet are simply going through the motions. Not really feeling anything, least of all their own emotions. Days spent subscribing to the status quo but unwilling to subscribe to their own actual thoughts. There is fear in embracing the unequivocal, unadulterated you. Many people are stuck in their past or living in the future. A revolving door of dreary yesterdays and the hum drum of no guarantees.
There is a fear a being a little wrong, of being a little crazy. A fear in taking chances, a fear in letting go. I had, and I guess still have a fear of losing control. When I was less self aware, everything about me needed to fit in a little neat box. I needed to please. Eventually I came to the realization a little vice ain’t never hurt nobody and that I needed to stop stifling the interesting parts of myself that made me me. I wish I had realized that much sooner. My 20s would’ve friggin party rocked lol. I could have been a little weirder. A little cooler. A lot more of me.
Becoming so mired down with thoughts of others, ourselves, our pain, or the glory days stifles our voice, our true being. Constantly chasing can keeps us from the path that would get us closer to who we are.
“Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about unbecoming everything that isn’t really you so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.”
Take control. I dare you to embrace who you are right this second. Listen to that little whisper in your head. Maybe it’s the thing you needed all along to do what’s next. To be what’s now. To live what’s later.
Who. Are. You?
