Things I Learned from Michael Jackson: #2 "I'm Me"

Things I Learned from Michael Jackson: #2 'I'm Me' (by Bianca)

Where to start? Because really, Michael Jackson is someone who had so much to teach to each of us. Not just fans, not just us, but also thém. ‘Them’ didn’t always get the lesson, they/them often couldn’t care. But the funny thing is, they/them wouldn’t have to. Michael taught them anyhow. Those of us who did listen have a lot of stories to share. Mine is probably one each of you can relate to. We’re all different, all spend a life in which we’re taking different paths and yet we share something that bonds like nothing ever bonded. Michael taught me to be, to feel and to see. He taught me that it’s okay to be shy, okay to be weird, okay to be misunderstood, okay to say no, okay to be an outcast. Because it’s called ‘being unique’. He taught me it’s okay to strive for perfection, okay to fight for what you want, okay to have dreams, okay to live up to your own standards and not those of others. Because it’s called ‘having passion’. He taught me it’s okay to care, okay to love like no one else does, okay to spend time alone and enjoy it, okay to feel worthy, okay to be most beautiful. Because it’s called ‘being yourself’. Michael taught me it’s okay to feel friggin’ proud of each and every of these things. Because you know what, no one is ever going to be ‘you’. There is only one you, and you have only so little time here on this planet. Make sure you used your voice, shared your heart and showed your vision. So that when you live your last day and see this teacher waiting for you, you can look back, smile and say: “I’m me”. ~ Bianca - http://www.biancavandam.com

We'd love to post your contributions to this series. If you'd like to write something, please consider thoughtfully something you've learned from or because of Michael (examples: about love or life, how to forgive, not to judge, how to follow your dreams, etc) and send your story to admin@majorloveprayer.org. Don't worry whether what you write is eloquent or simple, a full page or only a couple of paragraphs. The important thing is to just be yourself and share your insights in honor of Michael, to inspire others or just to empathize. The same lesson (like LOVE!) can certainly be written about more than once since we all have our own unique understandings. Thank you and much love! ♥ And thanks to Amy Grace of "A Cosmic Connection" for the poster to the left.

Bianca, Thank you for sharing your words and how true they are; we're all unique, have our own worth and self-knowledge and self-love are very important but sometimes difficult to reach. Love ya! Elmira
