Do You Know Who You Were Born To Be?

As anyone who's followed this site for any length of time knows, I am an avid Susan Boyle fan. I could write for days about why and what I think she represents but today I wanted to share the lyrics of one of her most wonderful songs - and one that was written for her. It's "Who I Was Born to Be", written by Johan Fransson; Tim Mikael Larsson; Tobias Lundgren; Audra Mae.

Here are the lyrics:

When I was a child
I could see the wind in the trees
And I heard a song in the breeze
It was there, singing out my name

But I am not a girl
I have known the taste of defeat
And I've finally grown to believe
It will all came around again

And though I may not know the answers
I can finally say I am free
And if the questions led me here
Then I am who I was born to be

And so here am I
Open arms and ready to stand
I've got the world in my hands
And it feels like my turn to fly

Though I may not know the answers
I can finally say I am free
And if the questions led me here
Then I am who I was born to be

When I was a child
There were flowers that bloomed in the night
Unafraid to take in the light
Unashamed to have braved the dark

Though I may not know the answers
I can finally say I am free
And if the questions led me here
Then I am who I was born to be
I am who I was born to be

This song says so much more than I could possibly write to you about what I feel each of us needs to do and be  in order to live our lives to the fullest.

Read them again and see if you don't agree. Search back in your memory and see if you know the answer to who you were born to be.

Print these out and put them on your wall or your desk. Read them every day and see what you were born to be.

  1. Wow!! This is such powerful stuff Terrie.

    I watched Susan’s journey from here in the UK and just know how transformational it has been, not just for her but for all those people who relate to her story.

    I so appreciate your powerful teachings especially about being our best self and doing the work we are here to do. I love that line in the song “it feels like my turn to fly” – I see you encouraging everyone to do just that.

    Thank you for your gifts Terrie, and for sharing them with the world.
    Much love
