We are always chasing what is expected of us, always trying to fit others' ideals. Yet, we are never satisfied and lost. While I want to strive to be my best, I want to do this, no I must do this, on my own terms.
Does it make more money? Does it make people like me more? Do I care?
In order to be inclusive, we must respect each others' exclusivity. It's when we shine as our individual selves, we make up a greater part of a collective whole. It's our variety that makes us special.
The straight talk...
For too long I've listened to other people. I've let them dictate who I am, and in that I've lost myself. I can't please everybody. From now on, I'm staying true to my heart.
What do I expect to attract? A better sense of understanding. A better sense of self worth. And most of all, I expect people to see who I was made to be, the real me. I'm ready to launch. This is our generation. Generation Rocket. No longer can we stay still. No longer will we be told what to do and who to be. Just be.
