The time has come...

So, it's about time we talk again. It's about time I waste your time and fill your head with random thoughts and ideas about life and everything in it once more. It's about time we get to know what we're doing, what we're thinking, what we're feeling and how we go about showing it.

Quite a mouthful, you say?

Let's start with the usual, a question. What makes you? And no, the answer isn't your parents, although it all started with them, but this is more on a personal level.

What makes you? Is it something you can see? Something you hear, or maybe even feel every time you look in that broken mirror? Yes, you might think your life is perfect, you have everything you ever wished for. Well, wishing never brought anyone anywhere...

What makes you? Is it that special someone you build your life around? Love is a funny thing, it doesn't start with meeting the right person, it starts with loving yourself, little starry eyed princess.

What makes you? Are you defined by the things other people tell you or say about you? bouncing off the light others shine on you just like the moon? Guess what, it's only reflections!

What makes you? Are you the person who has only one way that is set within your mind? And yet you need to prove yourself right everyday. Hmm, it makes me think...

What makes you? The only shining star in the galaxy, yes you, trying to grab that spotlight everywhere you go, handing out judgement to those who might "threaten" you. You who shine brighter than the sun, you have a guess as well. Planet earth doesn't revolve around you.

Like I said, what makes you? What makes you do the things you do, say the things you say, live the life you live? What makes you love, hate, fight, back off, lie, dance, hug, kiss, sing, scream?

Don't you think it's about time you find out? I think it's about time to find out what lies behind those eyes staring back at you in the bathroom mirror every morning. I think it's about time to get to know your greatest friend, your arch enemy, your lifetime long dream, your biggest fear, all in one. YOU
