Why Be Different When You Can Just Be You

We all need encouragement from time to time, so here is mine to you, with love.

Every person is born with their own set of gifts and talents, and although there may be others who share the same as you, no one has your personality and life experience which makes you uniquely different.

This is what sets each of us apart from one another, not two people are exactly the same. Each has their own unique style, personality, and experiences and that is what sets you apart from the rest.

Own your journey and adventure and most importantly, take ownership of who you are.

Your not someone else’s shadow and your not someone else’s ripple so don’t hide in their shadow and don’t ride their ripple.

Allow the light of who you are to cast your own shadow on the competition and make the kind of ripples that turn into waves.

After all, there are a lot of people making ripples in life, but few making waves.

To be yourself is to be original!

Just be you!

Just think about it,

“Change the way you think, change your world.”

Dad, Health & Fitness Enthusiast, Writer, Poet & Entrepreneur

One day a poem formed in my mind, it happened as a result of an experience I was going though. So I wrote it down and haven’t stopped writing since.

I’m not skilled in grammar and punctuation or even spelling, but I do have a gift for translating my feelings, thoughts and emotions into words, that people can relate to.

My motivation for writing comes from a deeply rooted desire I have to encourage and motivate people.

I know the loneliness, that darkness that leads a person to contemplating suicide, that was once me. I had no one that understood the pain, agony and darkness I was going through.

And that is why I write and share publicly, in hope that I might encourage another human soul needing desperately to hear, “There’s hope, you’re not alone in your struggle”.

I haven’t figured out everything, but what I have figured out I write about, and sometimes I bleed words turning them into poetry.
