As my first my blog post, my first thing to do was look at a few blogs and see how they started off their blogs…to only come to realise that actually, I don’t want to do that. I don’t want to be like anyone else. I’m going to be and do me. Afterall that’s what my blogs’ all about isn’t it? Being true to oneself.
Have you ever come across different websites/blogs ect.. and thought to yourself; ‘Hmmm I could swear that I’ve read that before’ well the truth is that you probably have.
Why? Because what’s happening now is that people are mimicking each other whether consciously or unconsciously. I could almost be accused of that myself..*briefly hides face* As I was about to start writing, without realising it, I noticed that I was actually echoing off titles I’d read many times before off in my head, till I thought ‘wait a sec’ that’s not ‘me’. I want to sound like myself and not someone else that I’ve read many times before.
So I started again as I would, as though I were chatting to a best friend and this is what your reading now.
Here I am in my comfortable ‘home clothes’ as I call them, sitting down on the sofa in my room with my laptop on my lap listening to ‘Indaco’ by Ludovico Einaudi. *feels relaxed as the calm tones course through me*
The truth is; everyone has a completely different voice and yes reading does help us realise things within us we possibly didn’t realise was there before.. yet if you dig way deep down inside yourself you’d see that you can and will bring out your true self. True thoughts. True beliefs and more.
In a sense, in a lot of aspects of our lives we have to talk, walk, and act a certain way which in some cases even pushes us towards thinking a certain way.
Yet think about it for a minute…why must we do that?
And should we adopt it for ourselves? No. I think not.
The next time you ever find yourself doing, saying or acting a way that isn’t you, put on your breaks and think to yourself; this isn’t me. It isn’t who I am deep down inside my heart and I’m going to stop doing anything that contradicts how I actually am and start acting more as myself.
Soon, you’ll find it comes naturally.
No more pretences. Uncomfortable moments. Inner conflicts.
By the end of the day you’ll be happy and relieved that you remained true to yourself.
Out of curiosity..do you know just how special you are?
Are there two of ‘you’ in the world?
Is there anyone exactly like ‘you’ in the world?
With your unique voice, features, flaws & perfections?
No. ever wondered why?
Because contrary to prior belief, your existence and every single detail about you does matter.
You make up this world. Yeah there are so many of us, it’s easy to feel kinda small or lost at times yet when all is done this world wouldn’t be a world without you!
So give yourself a break during those times when you become your harshest critic. That’s normal. Necessary if anything. After all where would we be as a human race if we never saw shortcomings within ourselves to give us room to improve in some way or other?
Don’t only love yourself. Adore yourself. Revel in yourself. Embrace and appreciate every single thing about you. every blemish. Every hair. Every bodily feature.
Now it’s fine to want, though you don’t need that extra make up kit or electronic gadget to help make your world just that much better. Why? Because you’re bloody perfect exactly the way you are! Everyone knows it. And if anyone ever tries to say otherwise, that’s because they are so unhappy within their own selves that they have a need to take comfort in other people’s misery.
Misery loves company, remember?!
Don’t let that get to you. Truth is that at times, people may get jealous of another persons’ confidence and ability to persevere that they secretly wish they were more ‘like you’ even though they may not even know it on the surface.
Everyone secretly looks for more Love, Understanding, Acceptance, Sex, and Intimacy.
Remember that the next time someone acts the bitc*bleep* or bastar*bleep*.
