Have you ever been in the spectator’s seat before? The seat where you get accustomed to being the entertained and not the entertainer? You learn to watch things happen in the lives of others, but then you do nothing about your life. In fact, you are probably more intelligent than these folks that grace the stage, you may even know how to go about what they do better.
You sometimes shake your head at what they put up and they still have so many followers. It is not only one of them you follow, you follow quite a lot of them, and you have gotten comfortable in spotting their mistakes and have also found joy in saying the better ways to yourself. You’ve come to love being a spectator! I have been there too.
You know you are better than the spectator role you have chosen to play. If given the chance, you will grace the stage and perform even better! It’s possible that previous times in your life you had been on life’s stage, performing and showing people how things could be done better. But you got into a phase where the lights were taken off you and you had to leave the stage.
There is a little voice that you shut up every now and then that whispers “When will you stand up and get back in there, you can do it right and better.” Yet, you give yourself many reasons and excuses why it can’t be you. You believe you have gone far away, that things have changed.
Truth be told, it seems that your esteem and self-confidence have been battered concerning this. It seems like you are sinking in a pit, the more you see people doing what you intended to do. I am here to reach out to you and help you out.
Did you close your eyes from a reality you’ll love to feature in or close a book which could have your ink deep in the pages? You don’t have to. I speak to you like I am speaking to myself; it is time to get up!
Maybe people were the ones that discouraged you, they didn’t affirm that they believed in you much anymore. You then wondered what the point was in continuing after all.
There are 3 deep sentences I heard in the award-winning movie “The Help”. The movie represented harsh times when there was segregation, and there was a lot of suffering for the black people. The help in the house always spoke life these life changing words to the little child and regularly made her repeat it after her. She always told her:
“You is kind. You is smart. You is important.”
― Kathryn Stockett, The Help
Powerful words! “You is kind. You is smart. You is important!”
It directly means you are RELEVANT and YOU MATTER!
Do your thing, whether people recognize you for it or not. Step out from the darkness into the light. It may take a little while to get used to it, or like a little child learning to walk, you may fall while trying to walk again. You’ll get a hang of it sooner than later.
When you start feeling like you should run out of the light to the darkness, say these 3 sentences to yourself till it overwhelms you:
“I am kind. I am smart. I am important.”
And that’s all that matters.
I believe in you, Go for it!
