Useless Info

My “go to” life statement: “Dare to be fearless! Dare to be you!” Look the world in the eyes and be courageous enough to be yourself, despite what others think. It only results in genuine happiness within yourself. “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment” (Ralph Waldo Emerson).

Core ambition in life: Looking back, I can definitely say my core ambition seems to be that I’m “out to save the world”. Always trying to help those in need and those in pain… and that also includes rescuing neglected and abused animals… because EVERYONE deserves to be loved!

Raw & real: What you see, is what you get with me. I will NEVER wear a mask. I will ALWAYS be me.

Best of both worlds: I am an intensely deep person, where people say they need “water wings” around me, when I talk about almost any topic. I love deep discussions because my mind often wonders far and wide on a lot of things, and I love to learn and know more; yet, I can also find the humor in almost anything because I love to make people laugh.

Different: I am OFTEN, TOO OFTEN, told that there is no one else like me on this planet and that other people don’t think and do things the way I do. Honestly, I don’t know how else to be. Maybe it’s because I’m sincere? I never say what I do not genuinely mean. Maybe it’s because I consider others before myself? Maybe it’s because I care and love too much? Maybe it’s because I see things from many angles? Maybe… maybe… maybe… The list is endless. Either way, I am just me.

What doesn’t kill me, will make me stronger: Through seemingly endless drama and trauma in my life, I choose to let those things teach me and make me stronger, rather than becoming defeated and throwing in the towel. Yes, I do have my “down” times but I will always get back on my feet… ALWAYS.

The most random thing I’ve done to overcome a fear: I’ve walked around a mall in my pajamas, with messy hair, looking like I’ve just woken up… all just to overcome the fear of what people think of me. This resulted in hysterical laughter (for myself) and realizing just how shallow people can be. It was a huge turning point in my life.

My regular outfit of the day: I’ve been known to regularly put on a t-shirt or tank top inside out and backwards… without realizing it for an entire day… and yes, that includes clothing label sticking out all day, even in front of me! I’ve done it with gym pants as well. My most classic moment was putting a hoodie on inside out and backwards… where as the hoodie covered my face, I automatically thought that electricity had cut off!

Accident prone: I keep myself amused… often. I either accidentally do something that ends in a big laugh, or I get a random idea (that I do not properly think out beforehand) and then it becomes an epic fail. Always ending in a laugh!

Only you know who you were born to be,
and you need to be free to be THAT PERSON.
