Dancing with Strangers

Sometimes we would rather be with complete strangers than with people we know.

As we grow we often outgrow others and we find that we can no longer tolerate being around them.

It actually becomes easier to be out in a crowd of strangers doing something we like, than to sit in the presence of someone we know who doesn’t get us.

The reason for this is because as you get to working on yourself, you quickly see people who refuse to change. Actually, they don’t even have a desire to. They think they are fine the way they are, the way things are and the way you used to be.

But the problem with this is, you’re not okay. You are starting to see things differently and hearing them too. You may notice the way people address you and it’s as though you are hearing them for the very first time.

It can be quite alarming. You wonder if they talked this way to you all along. You become more aware of the world around you, too. You see everything, hear everything and sometimes you wished you didn’t.

This is called being awake. Most of the world is asleep, but if you found my blog, welcome to the tribe. They talk about the 1% all the time being wealthy, but they never address the 1% who are conscious.

Most of the world is unconscious. They honk at you in the car because they are in a hurry to go nowhere, cut you off when you talk or ignore you all together because they feel they are more important. They do not understand that we are all in this together and that no one is better than anyone else.

Our mission here is to find our passion; something that inspires us and then go about helping others with it. We are all in need of this at this time. No matter how little you think your idea is, it will matter to someone.

I like to write to music because it inspires me and the words speak to me all the time. There are so many beautiful messages in music but most people don’t even listen. They just like the beat or they don’t.

You’re no stranger here. I get you! And there are a whole lot of us out there who do. Find your people and if you can’t right now, then this is the one time where it’s okay to talk to strangers.

I bet you never thought anyone would tell you that!

I’m a creative. This means I live in my head, my heart and my imagination; simultaneously. I love acting, modeling, writing and coming up with new ideas to help inspire others.
