A poem/letter…

My first blog post poem! 

Now, I guess I should disclaim that I didn’t technically come up with this poem on my own.
I came across a post this past week where someone was sharing their feelings, and while reading it, I decided to put together some of the words to form an encouraging letter/poem.

It turned out as the following:

Reach for it!

Your just sitting there,
Reading this,
Distracting yourself
From pain of life,
Livin’ here on earth,
With, & like, everyone else.
Finding happiness
In someone else’s life,
Like a moment of joy in your day,
Hoping it will take the pain away
Knowing that,

At least someone you know is having fun.

Well, stop reaching!

Put your hand on your chest.
Yup, that fearless push means your here,
And you’ve always been here.
Your heartbeat means you’re human
&

You are someone’s favorite human.
Someone’s best memory.
A home for someone.
A safe place they come to.
A home where people feel comfortable & happy.

You’re all those things and much more!
Don’t convince yourself to blend in!
Stand out!
Someone out there needs you to so badly!
Your life is not a mistake!
You are so much more than you think!

 

Thanks for reading! I hope this inspired you to stand out & always be yourself!

Country-Island-City kid…

You’re such a city kid! You belong on the island! You seem like a country person! 

. . .

If you’ve never been told any of these sentences, then you’re doing a great job at blending in with your surroundings! Congratulations! 

However, if people tell you those things, it doesn’t mean that you’re not still great at adapting to your surroundings; it just shows that sometimes people see your last destination in you because you’re still learning to adapt to your current surroundings!
And, that’s totally fine! It just means that you’re taking your time to learn about your new surroundings (the new culture), so, when you do adapt, people think you fit in well! 

. . .

Never be afraid to take your time adapting while in a new place! 

Learning about a new culture takes time (as it should) because in order to truly fit in you must, first, learn about the ins & outs about the culture from your new surroundings!

In order to truly fit in, you must stand out, while learning to fit in! 

 

Thanks for reading! I hope this post inspires you to continue to learn about different cultures around the world!
