No, the title is not about the movie “I am Legend“, it’s about Me… And of course You, if you choose to be.
Now, Imagine not being comfortable in your own skin, imagine a market where you can buy personalities and whatever you buy, you can become? That will probably be one of the fastest moving markets. It would be so successful, just think about it. By the way, I sincerely hope I’m not giving someone any (negative) ideas now, ‘cos honestly, such a market should never see the light of day.
It’s bad enough that people get to now change the color of their skin, the shape of their body, their height, voice and for goodness sake, even their gender. It’s BAD ENOUGH! Than for us to now have an industry that makes/ exchanges personalities, God Forbid!
I’m being this intense only because I know the implication of such a disastrous misnomer. We live in a world where many (if not most) people are not happy with who they are.
“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.” Oscar Wilde
Let’s pause for a moment. Be honest, you’re alone now and no one will know.
Answer these questions;
ARE YOU REALLY HAPPY WITH WHO YOU ARE?
ARE YOU TRULY COMFORTABLE IN YOUR SKIN??
ARE YOU TOTALLY OKAY WITH YOUR PERSONALITY???
Be sincere in answering, you need this evaluation, we all do.
People go about EVERY DAY wishing they were someone else. Okay, maybe that’s too vague. Wishing they had “that person’s voice”, or that guy’s height, or the girl’s physique. There’s almost nothing about someone else that is not wished for by others.
Hey! I’m not saying, “be all about yourself, don’t admire people, you’re all perfect and all.”
However, the truth actually is that “YOU ARE PERFECT”. You are the most PERFECT you there is, the most COMPLETE you there ever was and the most AMAZING You there ever will be. Whatever it is you think is not nice about you, whatever you think our almighty creator didn’t quite get right, I want the lines of the song to sink deep into you;
“…COS YOU’RE AMAZING, JUST THE WAY YOU ARE!”
It would have to take someone out of this world like (Bruno) Mars, to realize something so deep and true as this.
In the spirit of remembering people that are “out of this world”, one Yuri Boyka comes to mind. This fighter, (played by Scott Adkins) in the movie Undisputed always used to say to anyone who cared to listen (even himself): “I’m the most complete fighter in the world” *With a Russian accent*
To some, this might sound proud, to others it might be “braggadocios“, but to be honest, that is exactly the kind of confidence that YOU need, if you are ever going to flourish as You. If you are ever to thrive in a world that seems to demean and devalue the very person that you are.
You need to make up your mind to Love yourself, Love who God has made you to be, and Enjoy being you… Just You.
Until you do that, you’ll never truly understand what Joy means, you’ll never really enjoy real Peace and of course, you’ll never be able to live out your full potentials.
Like our quote for the day says; “Most people are other people…”
