the State of BEing

I believe one defines oneself by reinvention.
To not be like your parents,
To not be like your friends. 
To cut yourself out of stone.
– Henry Rollins

be yourself


 the State of BEing
by Kendall F. Person, thepublicblogger

Be unique. Be original.
Be kind. Be giving and be free.
Be inventive. Take flight.
Be the one person, you have always wanted to be.
Be like your Mom or be like your Dad, if that is who you wish to be.
Be strong. Be humble. Be free.
Be the type of person that your kids would want to be.
Be an intellect. Be a clown. Be a daredevil. Be a smile.
Be emotional. Its okay to cry.
Be opinionated, but have an open mind.
Be an eagle and soar through the sky.
Be grounded, but never stop asking why.
Be the music. Be the song. Be the lyrics and be the voice that sings it all.
Be not afraid, to take a fall.
Be a friend, but not a fool.
Be a bridge and be the fire too.
Be stoic. Be proud. Be happy. Be sad.
Be a witness, but not a prophet.
Be committed to see it through.
Be a critic and be supportive too.
Be alive, until your last breath.
Be the past, be the present and be the future, as well.
But more than anything else….. just be yourself.
