Be brave, Be you.

I Believe

I believe in the freedom that we are given to be who we want,

the power to be myself,

the power to say what I believe in,

the power to stand up for what is right,

the ability to be who I want to be,

courages, determined, loyal.

But I don’t believe in taking a path I don’t want to go down.

I believe in making my own decisions,

I believe in being my own person,

I believe in having the real me be shown,

honest, strong , brave.

And I believe in having the capability to believe in myself.

Live Your Life For You

          “Live your life the way you want” is what I live by. It is important to be who I want, and do what I want in life. A person can never be happy in life if they don’t do what they love, and I don’t intend to be that type of person that doesn’t follow the path they want in life, I am going to follow the path I want because its the path for me.

          When I was about seven a commercial came on T.V., there were hundreds of people standing around in a circle, they were all dressed in dull blacks and whites and all had the same exact facial expression of displeasure. When a person finally came out of the crowd they were very different from everybody they had on bright beautiful colors with a facial express of exhilaration, I could tell they were happy to be different. I realized then that I would never be a person standing in the crowd doing what everyone else was doing but I would be that person that was not scared to be themselves. I have never heard anything other than “be yourself” from the time I was a child until now. Iv’e always been told that its boring to be the same as everyone else, from family, books, movies, and society.

          I only have one life to live and I am going to live it the way I want to. I can’t turn back time and change something that happened and I can’t be happy with my life unless I make decisions for me not for others. God made me the way I am and if he wanted me to be like everybody else I would be but no but people are the same. So I dare to be different.

          If I grow up into a person I don’t want to be I will never be happy in life, I will never be doing what I want in life, I won’t be the real me. If I do tell myself everyday that it is okay to be different, it’s okay to run my own life. By making decisions for myself like what to wear, how to act, what to learn, what to teach I am being myself, by doing what I want.

          Other people should definitely stand out, be brave, be strong, and be themselves because the feeling of being yourself can make you happier than anyone ever can. Being yourself makes you feel wonderful and beautiful in a way that no one else could possibly feel. So stand strong and be the only you, you can be.
