Be Your Own Action Hero

Be your own favorite author.  Be your own action hero.

Some blogs wouldn’t want to publish this.  I love Rebelle Society and other gardens, and I grow weary of them.

I want to plead with you to grow your own wisdom and forge your own manifesto.

You’re so much more, in and of yourself, than a pithy quote, a nature pic, and an internet meme.  You learn from these, but you’re capable of inventing them!

It’s symbiotic.

We build upon and grow from others, and at the same time we find our voice, and we give back, and we share our own perspective.

When will we cut loose the tethers?  Should we?

If we set out sailing, need we leave all else behind?

Or, can we absorb it all, take it all with us in spirit, as we set forth? Bravely.

Acknowledging those who nurtured and supported, yet surpassing same in our own excellence.

For you are, in every sense, excellent!

Accept it, without fear or doubt.

You expound, you inspire, you motivate.

Above all, you DO!

I read dozens, maybe hundreds, of marvelous, amazing deep thoughts each day.  I aspire to create my own adventure.  Not to invalidate or in any way belittle others, but rather to Live it, to Be it, to Own it.

I love to read great writing, but I want to write.

It’s like cycling.  I would rather be out riding than watch the Tour de France, even if I am half as fast as them.

At some point, we have to fish or cut bait.

So, please please please set aside time away from scrolling and browsing to compose.  Be your own author.

And before you draft, do something worth describing.  Be your own action hero.

Keep harvesting Rebelle, all you rebels, but don’t forget why you are here.

You’re unique, you’re awesome, and your own story is every bit as epic and worthy.

You may find yourself, strangely, with less time to read because you are engaged in the moment and LIVING.

I know everything, and I know nothing.  I’m an old soul, yet I am a child born yesterday.
