Officially, Standing Out

Brown girls naturally stand out! I love that part of myself and wholeheartedly embrace it. I guess now I'm taking standing out a step further with one of my new favorite sites. Lately I've started doing guest posts. Most recently with the site For Brown Girls. I'm  loving the "Meaningful Melodies" category it's a vehicle to share the lyrics of an inspirational or motivational song. Even though the songs are featured on For Brown Girls they have a positive message to motivate everyone. I will share and link the ones that are featured as I go.

The latest song that came to mind was "Stand Out" sung by Keke Palmer from the soundtrack to the movie "Rags" on Disney Channel. The song is relevant for everyone, no matter how old. It's about getting up breaking free from all the limits, but most of all yourself. With lyrics like:

"On this day, I'LL finally listen to what's been calling me all it takes is letting go of whatever people think of me... this way I'll stand out and break away to be free. Happiness is what I can't live without."
The song focuses on the accountability that belongs to yourself as an individual, to break free from your own defeating thoughts. Also, it's a motivational tune to make an impact in the world by standing out; Not following the status quo.  Sound familiar? "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will." (Romans 12:2)
It's about truly finding you, not just going with what's acceptable. That's definitely more of what we need in the world: Individuals who will be B.O.L.D and stand out in their positively progressive purpose.  Shout out to Keke, DarkChild, and everyone who help construct the beautiful song!
