The sun is perfect and you woke up this morning. You have enough language in your mouth, to be understood. You have a name, and someone wants to call it. Five fingers on your hand and someone wants to hold it. If we start there, every beautiful thing that has and will ever exist is possible. If we start there, everything for a moment, is right in the world ~ Warsan Shire💙
We are living in a digital age that perpetuates an ideal image and with that, connections can be so superficial. We are stimulated with current rationales of beauty, health, fitness, lifestyle + more – external factors that subconsciously creates waves of insecurity.
If someone were to ask you, “WHO ARE YOU?” I mean, really. “What would your answer be?” Have you ever thought about that. You are not your name, height, weight or gender and you are definitely not where you come from. You are your favorite songs, the books you’ve tucked into, the thoughts you have, the emotions you feel, the sun on your face, your soft blankets and what breakfast you choose to eat on the weekends. You are the past. You are the present. You are the future. You are a thousand things, but we live in a society that chooses to see the millions that you are not.
I could probably write for hours and hours but I will leave you with this: Don’t worry about what people think of you or about the way they try to make you feel. If people want to see you as a good person, they will. If they want to see you as a bad person absolutely nothing you do, will stop them. Ironically, the more you try to show them your good intentions, the more reason you give them to knock you down, if they are committed to misunderstanding you. Keep your head up throughout and be confident in what you do. Be confident in your intentions and keep yours eyes ahead instead of wasting your time on those who want to drag you back. You can’t change people’s views, you have to believe that true change for yourself comes from within you, not anyone else.
The truth is, you can live. So tell me, WHO ARE YOU?💙💙💙TAG YOU’RE NEXT!!!
BLESSINGS AND LOVE…😊
