I write so I can breathe. I am constantly evolving, mindless at times, frustrating even perhaps but heck, I wouldn't change the smell of freedom that comes with writing.

Something Positive

A friend of mine said to me, right at the beginning of the year, on the first day, "I want you to write something positive." It has taken me twenty-two days to get to the point when I have sat down to write something positive and here I am wondering where to begin.

You see, being positive is not a festive date or an occasion. It is a constant state of wrangling yourself out of some chaos or the other on a regular basis, daily, hourly, what have you. With a person like me, it might be something even more frequent. Being positive requires a stubborn attitude to insist on finding the up-side in everything that we do. You may lose faith in a lot of things but as long as you believe in the fact that you are a single masterpiece and there is no other quite like you in this world, you will do just fine. That, my friend, is the belief that you have in being YOU. 

We are such pretenders, all of us, well...mostly. We want to be an ideal person (or appear to be)...a daughter, a son, a brother, a sister, a wife, a husband (o ye married lot)....the list is endless. We strive to be all that. In the journey, you forget that being YOU is really what you need to be...everything else will fall in place, the way it is meant to be. Dare to have honesty with yourself and stop pretending to be someone you are not. That will fade, ever so quickly and heck, who wants to live a lie and be afraid of being caught? Not me. 

I do not have that much time in the world. I want it all. All or nothing. I live with passion and I know it is a big deal. Make it your big deal. Find what works for you. Find your passion and see the aura of its positive energy draw people to you. Make that tiny step to being you. YOU.
