“Why are you trying so hard to fit in when you were born to stand out?”
That quote popped up on my twitter a few months ago (@FamousWomen Inspirational Quotes). I have been thinking about it quite a bit.
Sometimes I feel like a super hero with a secret identity. People who don’t know me just see mild mannered Morgen. Making assumptions about me without taking the time to find out more. I can’t blame them, I’m guilty of that with others. Deep down inside I do believe that everyone has their own super powers/creative force that drives them, we just need to take the time to get to know them.
Other times I feel like it is all a case of mistaken identity. People see more in me than I see. It must be a mistake. I’m just an ordinary person living my ordinary life. Ordinary, but desperately trying to stand out, to be recognized as different. Not noticing or recognizing that I am different.
Now, I know, deep down inside, that I’m special, I have creative gifts, I have my own way of capturing the world, I am like no other person on this earth in so many ways. I have even been told that I am an inspiration *blush*- this is part of the mistaken identity Morgen- not me.
It’s all a crazy struggle. One I probably think about way too much. I guess ultimately I want to be me, fully completely, without any doubt, me. I want to be able to trust myself creatively. I just need to learn how to get there. If you have any tips to share please let me know.
