This week I finally took the chance to watch Frozen. What a movie! I walked away feeling so light on me feet and inspired by Elsa. she is such a strong character that learns to accept who she truly is inside and lives as the real her(no wonder the character is going to be in Once Upon time!). For the child inside me she made me want to cry and sing. Her song “Let it go” came on and and it touched me how she developed as a woman throughout the film. The reason that Let it go touched me, is that I feel that many women (myself included) hide behind a created version of themselves. We have a hard time opening You see that possible special someone, but you don’t say anything or worse, stay by their side but never speak up. It hurts and tears us up inside, for too long.
Enough was enough, Elsa inspired me so much I decided to make a change. My goal for myself this year was to be me, and not to worry about what people think( I encourage you to do the same) . Funny enough I had an amusing discussion with my special someone over skype about blogging. He thought they were no biggie and I kept to my guns and tried to let him know how passionate I am about writing here. We laughed about it and , you know what. Latter that night he apologized to me for the talk, just in case he hurt my feelings (aww). None were hurt I told him it was nice to hear someone else’s point of view and talk freely about it.
The point of this story is that I was true to myself, not what people expect of me. As long as we do not damage relationships with those around us (this I
is important) It is always best to go this route. It took me almost a decade to be finally true to myself and admit that I should put a relationship aside (Negativity was part of 80% of our discussions, no matter how I tried). It was good timing too as I had become jobless shortly after, I needed the positive vibe (which everyone deserves) from people who lived it.
What a shift, but now back to you. I want you to look within and compare who you are inside (and the you during “me time”). What small changes can you do to bring that person out? Start with what fells comfortable and do it around those that feel the safest. Slowly then move this trait ( no matter that it is) with you when hanging with others. You have the chance to do something amazing for yourself, you can ignore what people say about the true you. Dance in the mall, sing loudly while on a walk etc. If its you, let it out!
