OUTSIDE THE LINES

Do not be afraid to color outside the lines. Take risks and do not be afraid to fail. Know that when the world knocks you down, the best revenge is to get up and continue forging ahead. Do not be afraid to be different or to stand up for what’s right. Never quiet your voice to make someone else feel comfortable. No one remembers the person that fits in. It’s the one who stands out that people will not be able to forget.

Be Proud Of Who You Are

Come with no wrapping or pretty pink bows.
I am who I am from my head to my toes.

I tend to get loud when speaking my mind.
Even a little crazy some of the time.

I’m not a size 5 and don’t care to be.
You can be you and I can be me.

I try to stay strong when pain knocks me down.
And the times that I cry is when no one’s around.

To err is human or so that’s what they say.
Well, tell me who’s perfect anyway.

HOPE FOR THE FLOWERS.

96629

“Hope for the Flowers is an inspiring allegory about the realization of one’s true destiny as told through the lives of caterpillars Stripe and Yellow, who struggle to “climb to the top” before understanding that they are meant to fly.

I love this book. Quite simple, but beautifully written. The allegorical story gives us the message of how to become somebody while showing how to value life and relationship. 

There are times when we believe that we couldn’t do anything more than what we have in our life, we stick to be sluggish and being hopeless about the situation. This book reminded me again to explore and discover myself beyond what I see and believe.  We have to know our worth. 

Yes, hope is still there. I can’t wait to fly!

Verdict: 10/10

Even though I look like shrivel and lonely,

but deep inside I have never gone astray.

I am waiting for someone who dares,

to take me with care.

I am not yet a dead rose,

but just slowly withering away.

Just wait and see,

I will overcome this fear and can be blooming again.
