Music Mondays: Kierra Sheard Shares Inspiring Message on Being Yourself

In a day and age where it is so easy to be in the know on what everyone else is doing, the desire to create an image based off of someone else’s life is becoming far too common. You see someone in a video or a magazine, adorned by millions and jet-setting all over the world, and it makes you wish that you had their life. Sometimes just seeing friends or coworkers making big moves every day via their stories and photos on Facebook and Twitter can cause you to crave a similar lifestyle for yourself. 

.

While it is always good to aspire to make your life better, there is a big difference between admiring someone and allowing that admiration to inspire you, and wanting a certain lifestyle or profession solely for the popularity, glamour and glory. To put your own ideas and personality on the backburner to chase ‘pseudo-passions’ is the biggest mistake that anyone could ever make. Why not just be the YOU that you’re supposed to be?

 

The latest release “Lane” by Contemporary Gospel artist  Kierra Sheard is the perfect song about this type of behavior. She talks about how oftentimes when people chase a lifestyle that was not intended for them, it only leads to a path full of delays and disappointment; and how it is so much more productive to apply your efforts and energy towards the dreams and talents that you have been gifted with. When you do so, your gift will make room for you in such a way that there will be no need to yearn for the life of others, and you will have the success that was destined just for you.

–But what if that ain’t your lane??

Just be you…

.

When you stay true to yourself, operate in your own passions and as the song says, “stay in your lane”, you create a life that is more fulfilling and joyful than any amount of fighting to duplicate someone else’s life could ever create for you.  The things that you want to do in your life  may not be what everyone else is doing, and people may not understand it, but don’t ever let that discourage you.


Remember:  there are enough ‘copy-cats’ in the world right now—why add to the number?

.

If it is not meant for you, why try to Do it? Be it? Have it? Stay in your lane and just be YOU! :)
