Wild and free.
Racing toward my unmistakable me.
Weights off my shoulders. Doubts off my back. Regrets growing older. Fears under attack.
I’m not stopping until I touch the part of the sky that I’ve stared at for years. Reaching my hands above my highest aspirations and raising my fists toward my tallest temptations. Letting go of every desperate act of indecision that’s kept me clinging to a life that isn’t my own.
Everyone is born free, but our first steps are straight into the cage someone else has built for us. Untamed beasts caught inside the corners of someone else’s mind. A perfectly-painted prison built by another person’s vision, with no room for our own potential, purpose or passion.
But what about what WE want?
What about our own dreams? And our own ambitions? What about our insatiable appetite to explore, and discover, and unleash?…
I’m sick of standing in someone else’s shoes.
I’m tired of sinking in someone else’s sandbox. I want my feet to feel the face of unsolid ground. And my toes to taste the ocean.
I want to let go of their damaging words, and leave behind their lifetime sentences, and write my own story… Take my own chances.
I know most people won’t understand. And many will turn their backs on me. I know some that I love won’t celebrate what I see.
I know I have to break my heart for this journey to start.
But I found who I am.
And I feel who I can be.
A soul set on fire.
Alive, wild and free.
