I Am Who I Am
I refuse to be categorized. I will not allow myself to be put into a box such as:
Member of the ninety-eight percent
I will be judged by the work I do not the bucket someone wants to put me in.
I will not assume everyone else knows what's best for me. I will be my own guide.
I will not believe everything I'm told and follow blindly.
I will challenge everything, question everything, and validate everything.
I will not wear rose colored glasses.
I will be my own person. I will choose my own thoughts.
I will not be absorbed by negative energy as it saps the soul.
I will not be obsessed with the media.
I will understand and accept that polarization of the masses is part of their objective.
I will not accept what I hear as fact.
I will follow my inner spirit.
I will move forward and do my part to change the world for the better.
