This was inspired by the song "Who I am" By Nick Jonas
Who I am. Those three little words mean so much to me. What I want to do with my life, where I want to go, how I see myself has always been a struggle for me to express. I have never been the type to talk about myself and because of that I don’t feel that people truly know “Who I Am”. I usually hide behind my humor not letting people see all of me for fear of rejection. For as long as I can remember I have always been in the shadows of the people who are accomplishing their dreams, I have been in the background barely noticed while everyone else is doing great things. I long for that satisfying feeling of making something of my life because I have never felt like I am capable of it. I have been told that I am a dreamer and that my dreams are useless, I have let the mean words of others, all the negativity and the fact that I am dyslexic stop me from living my life. I want to be able to look in the mirror and see a very bright and beautiful individual but instead all I am use to seeing is uncertainty. I use to let others make decisions for me and in the end I realize that it’s not for me. I have felt like I will never do anything great and that I will always be stuck on the other side of the gate to success. I want to be known all around the world for inspiration. I want to be someone’s hero, I want to feel important. I want to make a difference. I want to be the type of person that inspires people to not just chase after their dreams but actually catch them. I want to be the person that helps others believe in themselves and believe that they can do the impossible. I want to discover the world while helping along the way. I want to give people hope of a better tomorrow. I want to spread my wings and fly. I want to make my family proud, I want to prove to myself and others that I can be someone; I want to make people understand that they are beautiful no matter what they have been told or believe. I want to be an example to people everywhere that their dreams can come true. I want to be someone’s light in their time of darkness, I want to show people that just because you have a disability doesn’t mean you can’t concur the world. It’s time we turn our wants into reality. I am a Child of God, a Daughter, Sister, Aunt, Friend, Neighbor, Co-worker, I am Determined, Positive, A Dreamer, Artistic, Thankful, Dyslexic, Scared, Brave, Strong, Weak, Sensitive, Motivated. I am ME. I want to give children the courage, and confidence that I never had to follow their dreams no matter what others may say.
