Look me in the eyes.

I will dare to be great.

Look me in the eyes.

What can you see? Can you see the fire in my heart? Can you see the passion for what I believe in, behind the smile, the tears, the blood, the pain, the happiness? Can you see me? Can you see me for who I am?

I will not let myself end where I started. I am committed to change, to taking chances, to facing fear. I am committed to my hearts desires. I am committed to love. I will break walls, destroy obstacles, and fight for what I believe in. I do not fear the unknown any longer. I do not fear the future. I do not fear this moment. I am ready.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”

“This kid is going to be the best kid in the world, this kids going to be somebody better than anybody every knew.”

“Ima to show you how great I am. Only last week I murdered a rock, injured a stone, hospitalized a brick, I am so mean I make medicine sick.”

You can’t tell me no any longer. You can’t tell me I can’t do something. You cant tell me I am this or that. You cant tell me I am too short, too tall, to fat, to small. You cant tell me I will fail.

Maybe I will fail, but I don’t accept it as the end. I will learn from failure, but I will not end with it.

“It ain’t about how hard you can hit, its about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.”

I am going to go out and get what I’m worth. My light guides me through the darkness. I will not play small. I will shine. I will be me. I am powerful beyond measure. You may think I am this or that, you may the other guy picked, but I will succeed. I will show the world. I will become what I know I am. Look into my eyes.

Do you see me? Do you see who I am going to be, or do you see who I once was?

“Ima show you how great I am”

“I handcuffed lightning, threw thunder in jail.”

“The price of greatness is responsibility.”

It’s no ones right to tell me now, that I can’t go out and do what I want to do.
I will not point fingers, I will not blame others for my fears. I will not let others make me crumble. I will continue to be knocked down, but I will continue to break to build. I will get up. I will dust myself off. I will spit out the blood. I will fight.

“As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”

I will shine.

Look me in the eyes.

Shine with me.

    Absolutely beautiful! I think my favourite line was: “Maybe I will fail, but I don’t accept it as the end.” But it was all seriously moving. Thanks for sharing! And thanks also for stopping by my blog, it’s much appreciated! 🙂
