So it has been raining relentlessly for the past couple of days and I love just being outside in the rain but hadn’t been able to until today! There is just something about being consumed by a downpour that makes me feel…alive. I went out with my ipod and just let go! it was so freeing. I realized something in this time. I am THAT free all the time! Free to just be me no matter who is watching. Free to express myself no matter whose eyes may see. As I sang “My Life” from my demo at the top of my lungs as the rain poured a line became so vivid to me :”…your inhibitions won’t determine my life’s song.” I love that line because, in the context of the song, it means I can’t contort myself to be what you believe I should be or live how you think I am suppose to. It is crucial that I live my life true to who I am…and who I am becoming. Its sad because most people will never really know who they are because they spend their whole lives trying to perpetuate an image of themselves that they adopted from the world around them. There is nothing more unfulfilling than a life agendas, opinions, and make-believe chains. The beauty is that I am absolutely free to be exactly who I am.
So I encourage you, the next time it is raining don’t run away from it like we are conditioned to do, but experience it and just let yourself go. Be you!!
