Do you remember..

"If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything." - Malcolm X

I've always wondered what it is that drives us. What it is that moves us, speaks to our souls...gets our heart and our passions fired up. 

What it is that keeps us motivated, inspired...what keeps us from breaking down into a million pieces and giving up each day. 

What moves you? What do you believe in? What do you stand up for? 

Every single person in this world is different. Our beliefs are different, our experiences are difference, who and what we decide to be every morning - differs from day to day and each other. That is what makes this world so extraordinary. 
Dare to be different. 

It's the thought of having someone argue against you, disagree with you...and heaven for bid, they might judge you. So what? Everywhere you go and everything you do...people will judge. So what? Let them. If they want to make up an idea or a story in their head about who you are and what you believe in, than let them.  If they are going to try to belittle you, than you are already above them. Their loss on judging you too quickly and not getting to know you, is exactly that: their loss and their weakness.

Every action you do, every word you affects others. You control the way others feel and how you yourself feel. Control. It is important. Actions spark change, and sometimes they can be louder than words. Think before you speak, before you do. THINK. It is something we do very little of sometimes. Be kind, use your words, your manners. Who you are and how you treat others, is a footprint you leave on the world. How you treat others, affects them. It affects their day, their emotions, their experiences.

You have power. Use it wisely.

What is that drives you? That moves you, excites you? What do you stand for...what or who do you believe in? It's the idea that something so wild and so real can control what you want out of life. What are you going to do with this life that is going to be different, that is extraordinary, that is moving? What are you going to do to be remembered?

How do you want to be remembered?

It is your heart, your actions, your words and all that you are that defines you. Live wisely and and stand for something. Dare to be different. Do not be scared to be who you are, and say how you feel. This world is yours, let your passions rule you.

"God gave us a mouth that can close, and ears that cannot. That should teach us something."
