Rub the sleep out of your eyes

You may go about explaining several things to so many;

But learn from simple people, the skills they teach you.

They might not dream the big dreams you've dreamed,

They may not seem at all, competitively aggressive;

But they know what happiness is to them- respect that!

They know how to live in the now and accommodate.

Accredit them for they exude confidence to perfection,

Thriving with heads held high in a world ready to crush.

Look within yourself; what do you see?

A hard-working self; intelligent and goal oriented?

A sincere, obedient, sensibly-diplomatic job candidate?

A conscientous, reliable, dedicated, caring enthusiast?

And yet, you think that you're not enough?

This doesn't seem to fit right at all.

YOU are what a lot of people would never be.

God blessed you with wisdom, compassion and honesty;

He gave to you, a heart that truly feels for every other.

He is guiding you- understand why you're here, today.

You've got an important chapter of your life to learn;

Here, rote memorization and false promises won't help.

Absorb the goodness of the opportunity in your palm,

Be the best version of you, day after day;

Strive to make your presence felt, wherever you may go.

There's much in you to be merely attending like the rest;

Shine! You may never be adequately indispensable,

But it is upto you to make sure your zeal isn't forgotten.

As for that dream you see? Don't EVER give up!

Hold on even if the skies were to fall down upon you;

Cling tight even if life as you know it, threatens to end.

There is more to you, I promise!

I want to see you live your life exactly as you'd like.

Walk boldly for what you seek now is only the start.

Pull your socks up and tie those shoe laces tight!

Your destiny awaits you- remember that ALWAYS.

its insecurity that makes us believe that we are not good enough. whether in the looks department or skills or intelligence or wealth..

right, we should realize that we are there is more to us than this. if we would just stop self flagellating start lookin brightly at the bright future!(;

@ Mayen:

Girl, you're doing great. Trust yourself. Really.

Guest post- hmm. The idea scares me. My blog feels like a canvas I can dip in black, white or red anytime I like. The thought of touching someone else's palette and not being able to do justice to it scares me. Being a wet blanket, aren't I?
