We’ve all made mistakes. We’ve all shied away from that person that we’ve been longing to become. We’ve feared rejection to the point where the risk doesn’t even seem worth it.
At some point in time, we have been insecure, running away from what had scared us, running away from fear. Afraid to do anything out of the ordinary. Afraid to color outside the lines.
But forget all the rumors you’ve heard, the clichéd lectures you’ve been told. Be who you want to be. Do what you choose to do.
Take a risk, be spontaneous. Inspire someone. Look at life through a different perspective. Dream wild dreams. Don’t listen to anyone who says you can’t. Sometimes not being in control can be the most beautiful thing in the world.
At some time, you have wanted to change. To be a different person than you are. I’m not talking about dying your hair, or changing your appearance. We’ve all become bored with ourselves, sick of who we are, waiting for something exciting to happen. We all have a different person inside ourselves, trying to break our of our skin, that feeling of want.
A feeling like fireworks, a feeling like rain bursting out of clouds, spilling onto the earth. A feeling of rush, while blowing out candles. A feeling that we can’t hold on to. A feeling that’s bursting out of our lungs, searching for a way out.
We can’t change if we are afraid to. We can’t grow if we are afraid to change. Be we all have changed, whether it’s noticeable, or not. We’ve broken out of that shell, that wall that keeps us trapped inside of ourselves, just waiting to come out.
So lets be proud of ourselves. Ready to show ourselves to the universe, ready to be amazing. To be breathtaking. To be beautiful.
