this meaningless obsession

by, Cassandra

Find something that changes your life for the better, that opens doors, hearts, hands and minds to you. Something that teaches you how to be a better you, how to stand up and speak out (speak up and stand out) and, for once, stop caring about what other people think about you. Something that makes the world brighter and the bad days a little less bad. Something that gives you hope and connections and lasting impressions. Something that creates memories you want to cherish and adventures you can no longer justify not taking. Something that brings amazing people into your life, and turns friends into family. Something that gives you a purpose and a voice and the ability to look into the mirror and like what you see. Something that gives you a weapon to fight back against those little voices in your head, telling you you're not good enough. Something that makes you stand up tall and give it your all. Something that lets you forget your inhabitions and insecurities and leaves you free to dance without shame. Without apologies. Find that something, and then try calling this a "meaningless obsession".
