Believe in Yourself!

I am getting so tired of seeing the majority of society walking around all over the place like they are in auto-pilot. Do they realize that they are not even noticed? Do they realize that most people do not even care about what is going on with them? Do they understand that one day, maybe sooner than they suspect, their gig is up? Well, I do not believe so.
I believe a lot of people are just doing what they think they are expected to be doing. You’re a baby doing all the cool baby stuff, you become a toddler and start noticing that everyone is not going goo -goo all over you anymore, then you become a TEENAGER…lookout, and finally an adult. During all those phases in your life, you start to realize that the whole world does not focus solely on you. You begin to develop survival mechanisms that help you stay sane….if you are lucky! I believe, somewhere along the way, we lose our SENSE OF HUMOR and our INDIVIDUALITY.
So, I guess what I am getting at is….DO NOT LOSE YOURSELF.
Don’t be afraid to sing in public or start dancing, when you hear a song you love. Do not be afraid to state your opinion , it counts. Do not be afraid to speak up when you notice something that is not right. Do not be afraid to EXPRESS YOURSELF. I love to express myself through dance. I am not a great dancer, but I ain’t too bad!!! I just love being “different.”
I like to write down, every so often, what I like about myself and what I think I should try to improve on. ( Of course, I never have any in that column.) It helps me stay focused on handling everyday stuff in my life. It is just one of the things that works for me. Try it , if you want.
