Be Yourself {Everybody Else Is Already Taken}



I don't want to be somebody who's already taken. I want to be my own, have my own style of blogging. I don't want to change to gain followers{as much as I'd like to have a lot of you}.
It's sorta hard to find a way to say it, but basically I don't want to look back on blogging years when I'm older and think ''those were the years that I changed for others''.


*************

she smiled, the wind harsh against her cheeks, the life bursting out of her. she could only think of all the times she said no. no. no. no. no. no. no. no to being somebody else. she let her arms go; let the wind push them. oh, the wind, she thought, it thinks it pushes me but it has no idea of my control. no idea of my control. she liked the ring to it. 
she thought of the years when she was tempted to say yes. yes to change herself. and, how better off she was now then she ever would have been.

***************

I guess all I'm trying to say is be yourself. don't waste your time being somebody else.
