Daily Prompt; Standout


http://dailypost.wordpress.com, DP, Daily Prompt

When was the last time you really stood out in a crowd? Are you comfortable in that position, or do you wish you could fade into the woodwork?

 

Photographers, artists, poets: show us STANDOUT.

Through the years the last thing I ever wanted to do was stand out in front of anything. Hiding behind my mask was my habit.mask

I allowed people to beat me up emotionally for my thoughts I had. I let people allow  me to shrink to the size of a thimble and I found myself forcing words out of my mouth that were untrue in order not to hurt others feelings.thimblewords

It took finally ending up alone and feeling like my best friend was me before I got to the point of bringing myself out of my shell and voicing what I really thought.shell

I can still feel pain when someone doesn’t agree with me, but in the end it will be me standing on stage, listening to my own truth.

But I have learned that the best thing I can do for myself in order to be happy and at peace is just to be me and no one else.dscf4163

A stage? In my life time? For me? I doubt it. God has better plans than that heading my way.

I think that I will be just as happy knowing that I what deal with today is going to be nothing compared to what God has in store for me tomorrow.
