Lots of folks are trying to improve themselves and their worlds. But does it work? If you are trying to improve the you that isn’t you, what will you get? A better false self?
If you know, you are different, and you somehow don’t fit with the herd…Congratulations! But if you have been plodding along with the herd…now’s the time to set your sights higher. YOU deserve it. The real YOU wants it — NOW!
So give some thought to opening up, to a larger YOU emerging – the real YOU and don’t care what other’s think. If they’re stuck in the herd, they’re probably high on methane gas!
In celebration of YOU getting out of your rut this year and into a new adventure; I give YOU this poem to read. Let me know if any of this makes sense to YOU.
When you’re completely at home in your own skin
The folks who walk at your side
Will say something about you is different…
Well, it’s the parts you never could hide!
The ones that embarrassed but coaxed you
From the ruts of the Human Race
Now you walk your own trail without hurry
Or half-steps afraid of the pace.
Yeah, you’re livin’ your world…and it’s like you!
It ain’t always a comfortable shoe
But you’re on to walk what you’re showin’
‘Cause Life hasn’t pasteurized you.
