30L30D: Day 2 - I Want To Be

I want to be a voice for:
Myself. I've spent many years in silence because I was too afraid to speak up for myself. Afraid that if I did, I'd be ignored. Afraid that my feelings, thoughts, and ideas would be dismissed. But I no longer wish to feel that way. I want to be heard, even if I speak softly. My voice matters. I matter.

I want to be a creator of:
My story. Many people may only know my name. Some only know my face. Others just see this blog and my tweets. But none of that equates to who I am and what my story is entirely. It is only a snippet of something I'm in the process of creating. Life is full of ups and downs, highs and lows, joys and sadness. But regardless of what life throws at us, we can still change the ending.

I want to be invested in:
Life. I yearn to experience this beautiful world God has created. I come up with excuses on why I can't do this or that. I limit myself to almost the point of isolation. I want to be the real example of living life to the fullest. I'm already paying the tuition of life by simply being alive. Why not enjoy it?

I want to be a representation of:
Authenticity. I spent many years being what people wanted, thought, and expected me to be. It wasn't until recently, in my twenties, that I decided it was time to live for me. In order for me to do that, I must be honest and authentic with myself. I need to discover who I am at my core; who I am in my purest form. I want honor all aspects of me and feel no shame. When people meet me, even if they don't like me, they can at least know that I'm being authentic and living my truth. And honestly, it's okay if they don't like the true and authentic me. I am not for everybody.

Peace & Light,
Soleil
