I haven't looked at this blog in years, let alone posted to it. It's weird how a moment of reflection on yourself, who you were, who you are now can open your eyes to things you've lost sight of. A link for this blog came up on my "Time Hop" app, for those of you who don't know what that is, it's a phone application that brings up pictures, statuses, tweets and things from your various social networks that you have posted on that date from years past.
I clicked on the link not even remembering it was my own blog. As I read some of the posts I was reminded of who I wanted to be as a person. I was reminded of the whole purpose for starting this blog, and why I even bothered posting my thoughts to the internet. So after about 20 minutes of figuring out what one of my 100 emails, and password I used for this. I finally was able to log-in, and let my thoughts flow again.
I let time, and the rush of growing up let me forget about one of the most important things in life. Spreading the Love. As I take my own challenge today, I extend it to you as well. Take a step back from your busy life, make time for your family, and make time to become the person you want to be. Don't be what you think everyone else expects of you, follow your dreams, follow your passion. Even if it isn't orthodox, who cares? Why would you want to be ordinary anyway?
To quote "What A Girl Wants" (Great movie btw):
"Why are you trying so hard to fit in, when you were born to stand out?"
Take a leap of faith and try something new today, something you've always wanted to do but were to scared to try. Let me be your courage today, and your push of confidence. Open your heart, believe in yourself, and take a change on you. I believe in you, and your dreams. Go out today and do something to make them happen.
