I spoke in my last post
about feeling overwhelmed!
It certainly is better
and yet the circumstances remain unchanged!
My attitude is the key.
In addition I took small 'actions' that soothed my soul.
I cut back on the chaos of the weekend
and spent Friday night
on the couch..
with thai food!
I needed this breather!
I then committed to an event
I have always wanted to do,
I have just never felt secure
enough in me to take the chance.
I joined a group of animal advocates
who were protesting a local circus!
This post is not about my beliefs on that....
it is, instead, about the freedom I now feel,
to follow my heart!
Passion is part of who I am!
I believe ONE person can make a difference!
I LIVE OUT LOUD and don't hide who I am.
But, for a long time..
I was a chameleon!
Becoming who I needed to be
to please those I loved!
I stifled my hopes and dreams
as I know that for some they are too much!
So, tonight I stepped out of my comfort zone
and into my circle of me!
one choice to be alone
the other to be 'aloud'
but, both a reflection of knowing
when to step back!
and when to stand up!
and who I am in the midst of the storm
and the calm!
and the choice I have made to be authentically me,
flaws and all,
regardless of the circumstances!
