A Little Facebook Inspiration
I read this facebook post last year at the same time I was contemplating what my blog would look like and feel like. Jason’s words inspired the category Truth Be Told, and the essence of my blog, which is to be your truest authentic self and share it with the world even if it causes you ridicule because eventually when you embrace who you were uniquely made to be, the vulnerability in sharing your true-self with the world eventually turns into empowerment. Only when we get real with ourselves and share it with those around us can we fully come into ourselves.
I love how in the end he states that even the so called insults, and name calling are not insults at all because he is proud of who he is. As a matter of fact, he is in a sense, unoffendable. It is in the acceptance of oneself that eventually leads to the confidence Jason displays in his facebook post. Only when you love yourself and accept yourself can you live freely.
It is a big step sharing with the world who you really are, what you really care about, what your preferences are, and not everybody will agree with you or like what you like. Only when you stop living for the expectations of others and living out loud from your heart can you shake off opposing views. Revealing who you really are isn’t an easy feat; rejection is a major possibility, but the freedom in living your truth will eventually lead you to become proud, confident, empowered and perhaps even unoffendable.
Thank you Jason Henderson Amare 🙂
I like this poem by Neha, as she reveals the internal struggles of pursuing a dream, a passion, any self-improvement goal, a business even, and the outside perception that may accompany said pursuit. Often those that pursue such goals are misunderstood, but no experience is wasted, even if the dream hasn’t come to fruition…yet 😉
FAILURES FAILURES EVERYWHERE... LOOSER ME,SURROUNDED BY DESPAIR ! FAILURES HAVE BECOME MY MOMENTARY MATE,AND THEY GUIDE ME ON THE ROADS TO MY SOULMATE .... THEY MADE ME WRONG, STILL TURNED ME STRONG... THEY GIFTED ME TOLERANCE DECORATED WITH PERSISTENCE... SOME FAILURES DROVE-OUT BUNDLE OF ILLUSIONS, AND I GOT RID OF MANY SUCH DELUSIONS..... PROCLAIMED AS LOOSER TREATED AS A GARBAGE...I SAID.. YES I AM A LOOSER SO WHAT ? YES I STILL WON'T GIVE UP SO WHAT? SURELY,SUCCESS IS NOT TIME BOUND,AND I AM NOT LIKE EVERYONE AROUND... MANY LIVE WITH DEAD DREAMS SO WHAT? I WONT LIVE LIKE THEM SO WHAT? MY DREAM IS MY SOUL, MY SOUL IS MY HEART.. IF THE DREAM IS KILLED, I WILL BE LEFT WITH A DEAD HEART... I AM NOT YOU, YOU ARE NOT ME.. MY WAYS MAY BE ODD TO YOU YOUR WAYS MAY BE ODD TO ME... THE PACE OF…

Why do I blog? Truth be told – because what I really set out to do five years ago hasn’t come to pass. It’s okay though, because I’ve learned so much along the way about myself and life in general and I’ve come out the wiser for it. I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything and I know this is where I am meant to be for now. I blog because I want to be known for who I really am, not what people perceive me to be, or what they expect me to be. I blog because I want my inside to match my outside; for integration; to stay connected to my spirit. But even more than that, I want others to connect to who they really are too; to find their true self, to show who they really are, to connect to their spirit. And the best way I know how to do that is to lead by example. I certainly do not have all the answers, but I do know where to look. What I set out to do five years ago was to create a television series titled, Destination Enlightenment. Follows is my story of that pursuit and how I came to create this blog. Read More
