“One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.”
― Shannon L. Alder
You took a step I took a step
You drank I drank
You cursed I cursed
You stole I stole
You lied I lied
You cried I cried
You were lost I was lost
You chose red I chose red
You gossiped I gossiped
You got angry I got angry
You were happy I was happy
You lead and I followed
We shared one brained because you were my influence
I don’t look like you
I don’t act like you
I don’t want to do what you do
I don’t want to be what you are
I don’t like red I like purple
I like to laugh and be happy not angry
I like who I am!
I was created to lead and not to follow
Life is too valuable to conform to the image of someone else
“Never be afraid to show people who you really are; healing begins when the masks comes off” Angela Lambert
I am a creature of discipline. Everything is always put strategically where I can easily obtain it even the masks that I wore for years. Masks were a part of my daily outfits because of my insecurities. Where ever I went I had a mask in waiting so that I could put on the best performance of a life time! I never got an Oscar or an Emmy but I should have been named Best Actress of the Year!
Our lives are performances whether we want to admit it or not. Our jobs, our homes, our churches, banks, and schools are all the places that we put on our best performances. We perform for our families! We perform for our employees! We perform for the world!
People love to see entertainment but that was not the calling I had on my life! I was performing job duties that I wasn’t qualified for. I am not an actress! I am an imperfect person put in a world full of imperfect people striving for perfection!
TAKE OFF the masks and be FREE!
