In a world that is determined to try and make you into something that you are not, DON’T let it! FIGHT back because after all, you are YOU, and along with your character your IDENTITY is all you truly have. Don’t let yourself be dissolved into the mass of society, just another puppet walking in tune to the ringmaster’s mandolin. DANCE to your OWN tune. RUN when the rest of the world walks. LAUGH at the very blessing of being ALIVE.

Be YOURSELF in a world that tries to take that away from you! Hold TIGHT to your principles, staying TRUE to your core values and beliefs. Don’t let the world tell you that you’re wrong for thinking the way you do just because it is DIFFERENT from what it finds acceptable. CHALLENGE authority, for it was the world who instituted it. EMBRACE the outcasts, for they are very likely like you, scorned by the world because they REFUSE to conform to ideals in opposition to who they are.

Represent yourself with HONOUR and do not let yourself be defined by anything other than what YOU determine you are! Don’t give them the POWER that only you by rights should own. Take BACK what is yours and stand proudly, UNWAVERING in the face of adversity. Have the CONFIDENCE to stay TRUE to YOU and find RESPECT in having the COURAGE to stand alone, even if it means walking apart from the rest of the world and forging your OWN path.

Yes, there are better
men, stronger men, out there, but
my heart, it chose YOU.

Infuse your uniqueness into everything you do. Let your energy sparkle and infect everyone you meet with light. Smile true with happiness and let your inner joy reflect into your world. Be the difference you want to make and remember that any change you desire begins with YOU.

The smile that was glowing flickers a little and the spark that was becoming brighter suddenly whispers like a ghost in and out of time. Everything that was once so alive feels tired and before you know it days have turned into weeks. When you suddenly become AWARE that you have let that which once did not bother you creep inside and settle on your heart, you need to stop and take a moment.

Your soul longs for the sound of the waves upon the shore. Your body longs for the feel of the sand beneath your bare feet. Your heart longs for the PEACE that can be found in the solitude of losing yourself in the beauty around you and the sheer magnificence of something greater being born in the stillness.

Close your eyes and imagine. Let your mind wander along the shore, your dreams bold in planting their footprints in the sand, unafraid to splash through the waves, your smile and laughter unaffected and pure again. Let your soul out. Release all that which “holds you down” and give it up to the One who always knows and sees and has been waiting for you to UNDERSTAND.

Remember how it felt to be so “light”, the “glow” diffusing throughout your being, your aura “rippling” out like a wave in positive vibration. Remember the joy that turned even the most mundane things into “moments”. Remember the smile that lit you from the inside out so that even YOU noticed the change in yourself and wanted to be “out there” sharing the “happy”.

Sit back and close your eyes. Remember the emotion. Remember the feelings. Remember waking every morning and sensing that something wonderful was about to happen. Something wonderful WAS, because your soul was open and light and ready for anything. Go back to that time and let your soul relax as it releases everything clouding your colour, to once again be FREE.

Transformation is never easy. But never is anything worth being done. Transformation illuminates the soul, opens the heart, saturates the mind, "reconnects" your "being" as you "become". More. Better. Different. Changed. Awakened. Transformed. From the inside out. It will show. You will know. You will be more "you" than ever before. And that is beautiful. Wonderful. Glorious. Magnificent. Amazing. Blessed. You are. By Him. Give thanks and embrace the change, the challenge, the "coming". It will be worth it. You'll see. Believe. Trust the process. Transform.

I'm not sorry for being me. I'm me for ME. No one else. Those who do not understand, cannot or will not accept that do not matter. Others' opinions on who they think I am or what I should be are just that - opinions, and have no relevance or hold no sway over my decisions.

I'm not sorry for the life I choose to lead. I know my purpose. I know for Whom I live. I know what is and feels right for me. Those who "disapprove" or seek to bring negative energy to my light have no place in my life.

No, I'm not sorry for being me. I am who I am and I will never stop being true to myself.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” – 2 Corinthians 5:17

Sometimes it takes more than once; multiple “lifetimes” to create the best version of self that can possibly be, even as we continue growing and evolving with each “resurrection”. Every experience contributes to the being we are and become, but not everything is necessary to be taken “with” us into the “new” and there come times in our lives when we must leave behind all that was for all that will and could be. We must “release” the old so that the “new” can live in victory.

As a phoenix rises from the ashes of its own flames, having grown through burning “hell”, purified by heat and pressure like a diamond, so must and do we. Everything cold and dead or that no longer serves purpose in our lives with forward progression and momentum must be removed and let go of, the fire within that burns so bright separating itself from anything that would drag it down or hold it back from burning brighter and flying higher.

Find peace with your past, but let it shatter far beneath you as you rise on fiery wings to soar above the ocean, through the heavens, in the midnight sky, as another glowing flame spreading light in the darkness. Let everything ice burn and melt away with the heat of the passion and life that flickers and roars for freedom, and hold nothing back from the heat. Let the cold, hard prison that once “captured” you break as the fire burns it from the inside out, the world seeing the soul inside rise and shine.

Everything of “old” has been transformed; weakness become strength, with passion and heart renewed. The “new” has different feeling than what was, even if there are similarities in appearance, for the inner change, the evolution of soul, the spark that lights the fire now was created from the “death” of what “made” the new, the flames clean and bold and free from the dust and smoke of yesterday.  Burn as you were always meant to, a living flame, as an example.
