I wanted to be appreciated. I wanted to be loved. I wanted to be respected and considered. I wanted these ideas so much that I began to abandon my own sense of self. I began to reject what makes me unique in favour of what makes me banal.
Banality was their flavour so in order to belong, I felt determined to be like them. But like time, the truth of who I am cannot be contained by the limitations of others.
My trials, tribulations & successes helped forge who I am. Forgetting that became impossible. I could not suppress my experiences anymore than they could suppress their banality.
Eventually, my sparkle, my verve, my style & my wisdom shun as bright as the midday sun. They thought I had changed but the truth is; this is who I am.
I am wonderful, original, blemished but cherished, gorgeous and brilliant. I am humble but not submissive. I am not here to serve your Gods of nothingness. I am here to remind all those who have fallen that its never too late to get up.
I am excellence personified. It was out of this realisation came the phrase: never make excuses for being awesome…❁
