Happy New Week!
The month is flying, well at least that is how I feel. I hope you all had a great Valentines day. The day was awesome, I spent most of the time working, but the thing that just got me; was it rained.
I know for most of you, it is winter, for us here in Nairobi it has been a hot summer, with no rain, dry and dusty. So when the rain came down on Valentines day for me it was a sign. That the big guy upstairs has my back, not just mine but the whole country! What better way to show some love?
Today I wanted to “talk” about being true to self, I managed to watch my favorite movie – The matrix.
Honestly I love that movie, and one of the things I love is Neo learning himself. He learns he can be faster than what he thought he was, he learns that he made choices that most probably the Architect did not think he would do. He learns that to beat Smith – he needs to give up himself at that moment in order to get the peace that the human race need. There are like a billion things in the Matrix that I need to keep learning and reminding myself to do. The best one is the words written in the Oracles kitchen Know thy self.
This means to me – My true colors. Being true to me, in spite of what the world or the society would like me to believe is me. This process is not an easy one. I am learning that somethings that I thought were true to me, I picked them up because my circle of influence made them seem important.
Am also learning what I love or believe in, that resonates with me, does not resonate with others, and that’s just fine. Those things that resonate with me, make me unique, make me tick, they make me well Me.
My challenge right now is to show my true colors to the rest of the world. I must admit I have been hiding , mostly I guess out of fear, of what? I cannot even say. Maybe am too loud, maybe am too colorful, or maybe am just too passionate about what I do…… so many maybe’s. But time has come for me to shine, to be my true self to show my true colors to the world, those who can’t handle me well they can just keep moving on.
So here is to my true colors and to yours too, let’s make sure that 2015, knows that we are here, that we make sure that we light up the world up with our wit, our colors, our music, our novels, our lives!
Let Babyface and Phil Collins give you the picture with this song! and Be true to you, Show your true colors, because you are beautiful.
