Reinvention

 

DSC05591Reinventing yourself is often talked about,

It is the mantra in vogue, without a doubt

Open your mind and your purse, get a makeover

Live the life that you’ve dreamt of, before it is over

That is what “lifestyle consultants” proclaim

You could be a new person behind the old name..

Unfortunately the methods of reinvention

Seem to be archaic and prone to repetition

Weight loss, change of clothing and hair style

While these help you go forward an extra mile

May make you more outgoing and confident

But getting a new skin does not reinvent

The person that is truly, sincerely you-

Reinventing yourself completely implies

Changing yourself more deeply than you may realize

Challenging and changing your beliefs deep-seated

Radically, completely, or your purpose is defeated

It takes courage to perform an honest assessment

Of your own shortcomings, without resentment

It takes willpower to change your beliefs and actions

While consciously ignoring others’ reactions..

**

Reinvention is for yourself, not for an audience

It cannot be done under any false pretense

 

It involves introspection, a difficult journey

Full of surprises, on the road to self-discovery..

So reinvent yourself, by all means do

Emerge from the process happier too!
