As you make believe you are

repost from B’s

Whenever I feel afraid
I hold my head erect
And whistle a happy tune
So no one will suspect
I’m afraid.

While shivering in my shoes
I strike a careless pose
And whistle a happy tune
And no one ever knows
I’m afraid.

The result of this deception
Is very strange to tell
For when I fool the people I fear
I fool myself as well!

I whistle a happy tune
And ev’ry single time
The happiness in the tune
Convinces me that I’m not afraid.

Make believe you’re brave
And the trick will take you far.
You may be as brave
As you make believe you are….

~from the King and I.

Although I wish that everyone could be unafraid of the world, have no lack of confidence, and love whatever they are doing, I know reality is often not the same. It is okay to sometimes be afraid; it is okay to sometimes be sad; it is okay to want to cry; it is okay to want to sleep the day away. Remember to wake up and continue walking, remember to speak to the world what you want to say, remember to live, live another day.

May you all be happy

As you make believe you are
