Day 74- page 74 Dare to be

Who are you?

Do you do what you love? Do you do, what you must just to get by?

What is your dream? Are you living it? If not, do you still feel as if you can make it happen? If not, have you given up on ever seeing it come to reality?

What do you believe? Do you think there is still goodness and hope for the world? Do you feel as if there is no hope and that the world is lost?

Who are you?

Are there things that you wish to do, but fear the reactions that you would get? Are there ways that you feel, that you fear to express because of what the actions of others may be? Are you afraid, to step out of the box that society and societal norms have pushed you into? Don’t say this, don’t believe that, don’t wear such an outfit, don’t have fun, don’t think differently.

Be the robot, fit the norm, don’t stand out.

Who– are- YOU?

As children, going out into public, especially school, there is an expectation as to what is acceptable wear. There are expectations as how to act, how to talk, don’t be different. Don’t stand out. Otherwise there is the ridicule and cruelty of those who don’t have that feelings of creativity. Who do not have that difference about them, who do not have an understanding of life outside the box.

As adults, we fear how others do not understand. We suppress that inner part of ourselves that desires to shine.

Artists, actors, musicians, painters, writers, are some who allow that difference to escape and shine brightly. Athletes are different, their drive is to win. Artists wish to create, to do so, has to allow their difference a certain amount of freedoms. It is expected.

It is not expected so much among the normal, non artistic folks.

Still, no matter who you are, you are different, you are special, you are important. Was it Dr. Seuss who said something like, You are you, no one else is as you as you. And this is true.

Don’t allow others to prevent you, from being you.

Live, as you crave. Be you, be loving, be creative, be compassionate, be alive.

Act, as you wish, as long as you harm no one. Dance, laugh, climb that mountain, swim that river, be you, enjoy life.

Sing, even when you may not be very talented, sing anyway.

Care about others, reach out, uplift, encourage, love without measure.

Be you, be the you that desires to escape and make your life special. don’t allow thoughts, words, looks or actions of others, prevent your living fully.
