Favorite Quote:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others

I am me!

I mean something to the world

My heart tells me that passion will be my guide

My mind tells me that I should follow logic

And not be led astray by the folly known as love

The path of logic isn't often traveled

The path of love worn and trodden

Many say that sentiment clouds logic

That reason is the only path worth traveling

Others say that following your heart leads to bliss

Now the pilgrim must decide which road to take

Weigh the consequences in the balance of life

And once the tally is given, must pick the better

I am me!

I mean something to the world

My life is not entirely without purpose

My continued respiration is not in vain

I could walk the path of love

To exercise logic on my sentimental journey

A combination of these paths that's well advised

Instead I choose to blaze my own path

To contribute to the world in a way unlike another

To not only combine the paths

But to elaborate on the meanings of each

TO find a deeper purpose in each path

I hope that you choose to share the trek with me

However, if you don't I shall depart on my travels

And bravely continue alone into the wilderness

If for no other reason than to prove that....

I am me!!

And I mean something to the world
