It comes from the heart*

I was thinking today on how people succeed in doing what they want. I may have made the ultimate discovery. It is why some people are successful and loved by so many people. And I'm not just talking about famous people, but those in our day-to-day lives. Those people who are popular amoung their peers (just to clarify what I mean by popular: the ones that are truly loved and not loved because they're so "cool").
It's simple because what they do comes from the heart. I find it to be extremely true. When people do what they are passionate about, and they are honest with themselves they are successful.
When you're not faking it, you're being yourself, when you've come to terms with who you are and you want people to accept who you are.
I know that probably sounded like some kind of preaching but it's me preaching to myself, I am who I am.
Like the song goes 'I don't want to be anyone other than what I've been trying to be lately'
I think I just need to appreciate who I am, I may not be the one qouting some famous philosopher (or thinker since I don't understand philosophy but I mean I always end up quoting songs, not that I mind I'm just trying to say that I am not the most sophisticated thinker. I am a thinker nontheless).
Maybe I'm not the person to have a future planned out, maybe I'm just a girl trying to live and tryin to make a life that is worth while.
So what I'm trying to say (to myself) is BE TRUE TO YOURSELF AND FOLLOW YOUR HEART (from Hilary Duff's song Someone's watching over me).
I can be the biggest chatter-box, I can be the most annoying person that ever lived, I can be listening to nice slow music and then listen to some wild song.
I am what I am
Here's a bit of what I'm feeling right now:
I am special
I am beautiful
I am wonderful And powerful
Sometimes I'm miserable
Sometimes I'm pitiful
But that's so typical of all the things I am
I'm someone filled with self-belief
And haunted by self-doubt
I've got all the answers
I've got nothing figured out
I like to be by myself
I hate to be alone
I'm up and I am down
(I am for Hilary Duff)

I guess I haven't exactly said what I want to say, it's that I need to stick to who I am. I mean I am someone who is easily persuaded to think, feel, act in a certain way and I know that needs to change.
So well, I guess that was too much soulful. I like the word soulful, makes me seem like a poetic person. It's great to feel good, the best of you comes out. I am in a good mood these days, and I'm loving it.
Let's keep on feeling good and like Michael says (the song is probably not originally his but anyways):
Fish in the sea
You know how I feel
River running free
You know how I feel
Blossom in the tree
You know how I feel
It's a new dawnIt's a new day
It's a new life For me
And I'm feeling good

Keep it real people.
