Life is a Stage
Tuesday, July 25, 2006
It seems to me that life is like a stage
but that doesn't mean we need to pretend to be
something we're not!

one of the most basic human needs
is to be loved.

I see so many of us walking around trying
to be loved for something we're not.

it's only normal to want to say the right thing
to want to make people laugh or to impress others.

But the truth of it is, that invariably leads to disappointment
for everyone.

there's something we're all uniquely qualified to do
something no one else in the whole world is better at!
we are all unique in our own way.

Be yourself, when eveything you say and do
is motivated by sincerity than you
can't help but be loved and respected for who
you are.

Life is a stage. How we choice to act determines how
great we each are.

About Me

Name: Melissa Rodriguez
Home: San Antonio, Texas, United States
About Me: New me, not the same one that started out in the begining of the summer. Oaxaca and what I saw here in SA changed me. I use to think I did a lot, volunteer for organizations, chair events. blablabla. But there is sooo much more to do! And i learned not to be afraid. Not that I was scared of things before. But not to be afraid to venture out and ask questions. Or to say NO! And to ask why something can't happen. To be in the middle of all that and not knowing what tomorrow held. Finding out who really loved you when you called home, who was waiting for your call.. maybe my last call, that woke me up to what i want for my life....New me ..braver, more aggressive, and more FOCUS than ever on a GOAL! UPDATE: one goal completed since last updated: i graduating w/ my AA in PR! 2nd goal going to OLLU for my BS. 3rd goal: WE ARE GOING BACK TO OAXACA!!!
