Unapologetically me

I’ve been told by a few women in separate circles of my life, jokingly and seriously, that they can’t help but feel envious when reading my Facebook posts.

I am going to unapologetically be me. If my sharing how we live actively and love proactively brings negative feelings, then please take a moment to see how you can make some changes in your own Life to be in a place of joy and peace.

It’s not easy. Being in a place like this takes work, hard work. I’ve paid my dues with years of loneliness, depression, struggles with self worth, and oh so many tears. There’s that saying that the grass is always greener on the other side, but who needs grass when there are so many other beautiful choices for landscaping?

Get out of you’re supposed to box. Boxes are square and the corners will inevitably get stuck. This song here is mine and Marley‘s current favorite song to sing off key to while we’re lapping the neighborhood, a neighborhood filled with friendly neighbors, green grass, and beautiful vibrant colorful desert landscaping.

This is me from the greatest showman soundtrack.

Here you go. I’ve pasted the video for your listening pleasure below the lyrics.

I am not a stranger to the darkHide away, they say
‘Cause we don’t want your broken parts
I’ve learned to be ashamed of all my scars
Run away, they say
No one’ll love you as you areBut I won’t let them break me down to dust
I know that there’s a place for us
For we are gloriousWhen the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown ’em out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me
Look out ’cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is meOh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, ohAnother round of bullets hits my skin
Well, fire away ’cause today, I won’t let the shame sink in
We are bursting through the barricades and
Reaching for the sun (we are warriors)
Yeah, that’s what we’ve become (yeah, that’s what we’ve become)I won’t let them break me down to dust
I know that there’s a place for us
For we are gloriousWhen the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown ’em out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me
Look out ’cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is meOh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh
This is meAnd I know that I deserve your love
(Oh-oh-oh-oh) There’s nothing I’m not worthy of
(Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh)
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown ’em out
This is brave, this is bruised
This is who I’m meant to be, this is meLook out ’cause here I come (look out ’cause here I come)
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum (marching on, marching, marching on)
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is meWhen the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown ’em out
I’m gonna send a flood
Gonna drown ’em out
Oh
This is me
