I heard Katy Perry’s new song today, and it grabbed me in a powerful way. Most of all it inspired me.
It’s my time to shine. It’s my time to start putting the pieces of myself together. To figure out who I want to be, who I am.
I may not be nowhere near where I want to be. But I’ll get there, on my own terms.
I never got the chance to be the rebellious teenager. So I’m going to be the rebel that’s a natural part of me, the part that I suppressed. She also deserves free expression.
I will no longer be controlled… Told what to do, or how to feel.
I will no longer conform, just because I’m afraid of conflict.
I will no longer be silent. I have a voice, and I’m going to use it.
It’s time for me to write my own story. To transform.
I will rise.
