Daily Inspiration: Freedom

themostimportanttypeoffreedom

Whenever I walk into my dreaded highschool, enter the crowded corridors of the mall, or even stroll through my city’s charming and quaint downtown, I am constantly comparing myself. I see other girls around my age and I envy their impeccable appearance. Their flowing hair is free of split ends or those annoying fly-aways. Their faces are covered in a mask of thick make-up that makes them appear like the flawless models you spot in popular magazines such as Vogue. Oh and don’t even get me started with their clothing!  Their pricey Abercrombie & Fitch skinny jeans hug their beautiful stick-like legs and I swear that the stunning shirts they wear on their perfectly proportional bodies are worth more than my entire closet.  Every time I spot girls like this, I wish I could just hide myself in my room all day.  Sometimes I wonder why the hell God trapped my clever personality in the body of such a hideous creature.

But as I grow older and more mature, I am beginning to realize that every time I compare myself to someone else, I am wishing to be something I am not.  You see, I have absolutely no interest in putting  an ounce of make-up on my face, nor I am willing to spend even just an hour in the mall hunting for over-priced apparel. I have better things to do than waste my time doing that. I could be volunteering at the hospital, playing with my dog, or spending time with my family.  Hell, I could actually be enjoying my life and pursuing my passions and interests! And you know what, I think that is what I am going to do.

Remember, do as the quote above says and stop disguising yourself to be like everyone else. You are a unique gift and have a lot of potential in this world. You owe it to yourself to allow your dreams and aspirations to come true. Stop conforming to today’s messed up society and free yourself.
