When you need to believe in you!

When you need to believe in you!

There is always someone worse off than you, even if you think you’re the unluckiest person for a day, someone goes through their whole life as the ‘unluckiest.’ 

The same can be said for a black sheep. 

You don’t want to be a black sheep all your life but you’re too afraid to go for it with someone, or talk to someone, get your voice heard etc. I know how you feel believe me I’ve been there. But I’m not afraid anymore. And d’you know why? Because I believe in myself. 

It’s not something that just happens overnight. I do sometimes still have to persuade myself that I am worth it etc. because at the end of the day I am the only one who can catch myself when I fall, or stand up and say ‘I made that mistake,’ etc.

When you feel like you’re at your lowest ebb, just smile, shrug it off and say to yourself or out loud (sometimes it helps) ‘I am better than this,’ and prove that indeed you are. 

No one knows the ins and outs of your life. No one can and no one should. Always remember that everyone is fighting their own battle, whether you can see it or not, so be kind. Everyone is being courageous in some way, so be supportive, smile and show that you care. Even the most ‘together’ person you know is fighting something that you have no idea about, so try not be too judgemental. 

It’s sad that this generation has been raised to judge people. You’re not cool if you don’t have the latest phone, sad if you actually put pen to paper to write a letter (unless it’s your job) and things like that. I am old fashioned; I don’t have the latest phone and have only just discovered my favourites on youtube. And I am 21. I am part of this generation that’s obsessed with judging people. And I’m disappointed by it actually. It’s an unfortunate turn the human realm has taken though there are still gems out there who won’t judge you, at least not until they know you!'

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson YouTube is full of music that claims to be Native American from North America and usually it isn't. It may be quite beautiful music but it is not what it claims to be. And in my view it does not have the same power.  This is authentic, beautiful and powerful Singer, song writer and guitarist Robbie Robertson was born Jaime Robert Klegerman in 1943, in Toronto, Ontario. He was born to a Jewish father and a Mohawk mother and took his stepfather's last name after his mother remarried. He had his earliest exposure to music at Six Nations of the Grand River First Nation , Ontario where he spent summers with his mother's family. He is best known for his membership in The Band. Here is a translation of the words
