Free To Be Me

I love the double take people do, that moment when someone looks around and catches you in their field of vision. I am perceptive enough to register their interest, that micro second of acknowledgement conveys their gut feeling, sometimes dislike, maybe intrigue and often pleasure. It’s a nice feeling when someone likes my look, when someone enjoys a glimpse of the real me. It is a tiny interaction that gives me much satisfaction. Irrespective of their pleasure or displeasure, it is something i enjoy, something i crave. I’m on an e-skateboard with a HATE FREE motto on my T-shirt and floral shorts – i’m here to turn heads. Confidence is not about wearing the wildest thing I can find or to intentionally offend peoples eyes. Confidence is being fine with the concept that not everyone will like it and knowing that makes no difference at all. Confidence is a power that is all mine, what I think of me is not determined by your opinion. Knowing that, is real confidence. I play my YoYo in the queue and Tetris on the bus – I’m not wasting time, i’m filling it. I’m beating top scores on Tetris, utilising blocks in ways i never could before, it is a constant state of improvement. I am seeking perfection, my perfection.

Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong.
