I recently uploaded a post on called "bold with an attitude". My intentions for that post was actually to discuss some pressing issues. So here I go.
I found myself shying away from some things, things that put me front and centre. Things that make me stand out. While parts of me want to stand out, as me. A huge part of me also wants to hide in the back, where I wouldn't be notice. Where I would always blend in with the crowd, believe what others say, dress like them, think like them. I didn't even have my own mind anymore. I was always seeking for an approval, and to top it up I was as gullible as can be. BUT. I'd always known that I was different. My perspective of the world just didn't fit into the stereo types and the majorities "norm". Yet, yet I was scared. Scared to be myself. Just what is it about this imposing society that got me trying to fit into so much.
The media wants to control my mind, the stores want to tell me what to wear and what size to wear, the government wants to pin me down into it's system, and everyone just feels like they have a say about my life.
Everything in me is screaming, shouting, crying out aloud. AND FINALLY I SAY NO!!!! No to the mind control, no to the "norm" (whatever the hell that is ), no to the imposing 'idealistic' system. Just straight up NO. I dare myself from this day onwards to be bold. I dare, to be strong and courageous, I dare myself to stand for the things I believe in. I dare to be brave. I dare to love myself for who I am and who God's called me to be. I dare to speak my mind. I dare to arise and be front and centre if I need to be. I dare to be an individual both in mind and soul. I dare to be a proud black Nigerian and British woman, who loves and cherish people of all races equally. No more hiding, no more limitations, no more what ifs, or maybes. I dare to be 'Bold with an attitude'.
