Ever feel like starting over?
Today marks the start of a new Journey. From today onwards, I will no longer be that timid girl, afraid to speak up, share my feelings, and just live. I say goodbye to the insecurities of not fitting in with “the crowd”, and accepting the fact that I think and act differently. I will no longer be ashamed, afraid, or unconfident of the way I express myself. Today I say “No More”. It is time for me to live my life boldly, being Just Me.
I am on the quest for self-gratification, self-empowerment, and achievement. I am on a quest for self-discovery. Who am I? Who do I wish to be? What sets me apart from the crowd? Am I satisfied with this? How can I improve? How can I get to a place where I am satisfied with just being me and being okay with that?
Maya Angelou says:
“Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.”
I want the success that she speaks of. A key part of this success also lies in how I will inspire and motivate others to chase after their successes. I want to set an example that it is okay to try to be the best person you possibly can, but still hold onto those key things that make you who you are. As I seek out my success, I want to find opportunities to make a difference, give back, inspire, motivate, encourage, minister, and someday change the world. And I will do just that. I am going to open my mind and seize the opportunities of life. I hope to see each situation for what it is and react to it in a healthy way, taking from it the grain of wisdom that it provides.
“Every day you have the opportunity to learn and experience some-thing and some-one new. Seize the opportunity. Learn and experience everything you can, and use it to change the world.” Rodney Williams
