A Kindredspirit I have Found

The poem below, entitled “To Be Extraordinary”, was posted by Heather Krulewski in her post -> Here <-

I told her it is not my policy to reblog.  I try to always do my own thing and post my own words.  However, I asked her permission to copy the poem below and to comment on it because it restates everything I believe in.  It is a presentation in verse of the life I try to live and the truths I believe so strongly in.  I can only say what she has said differently; I do not believe I can say it better.  Please read this poem and let your heart and mind be joined so that both can understand the power and the freedom that we, as individuals, have within our grasp.

Thank you so much Heather!

To be extraordinary

We are all made for greatness

Built with an innate possibility

To be extraordinary.

In childhood

I knew this to be true

I thought I could fly

Never doubted

How special I was,

Never doubted I would be provided for.

In childhood, I believed in hope

I had dreams

Even though life was

Not perfect,

Even though there were hardships

I still had dreams,

I still had a trust beyond what I was feeling

That things would be OK

That I was and would be great.

Somewhere along the way

I lost that,

Somewhere along the way

Doubt crept in

Faith and trust became difficult to hold on to.

My ego took over and

Drew a veil of ‘less than’ over me.

Creating the belief that

I was less than great,

That it wasn’t possible for little old me

To be great.

But what my ego doesn’t understand

Is that it is just a veil

And all I need do is lift that veil

And I am back in faith and trust.

Because no amount of

Ego-centric thinking

Can erase the Truth

With a capital T.

That I am made for greatness.

That every single human

Is made for greatness.

That just to be ourselves

Is to be extraordinary.
