"Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.” -John Jakes
Oh, July…the month of hotdogs, booze and bathing suits.
I want to keep this short and sweet and talk to you about BEING YOU. Not the you you want to be or the you you think you should be or the you your family/friends thinks you should be. The REAL YOU.
Which is pretty great, just saying. But it might be easier said than done.
You were made to not be like everyone else. You were made to have those quirks and interests that you do and your skills or lack there of. You were made to be exactly who you are and not give that up for someone or something. Because when we do give that up, life gets weird and sometimes it’s hard to find “you” again.
Follow your heart, not what you think others would do. Live life like a little kid; fearless and full of joy. Love your freckles and birthmarks and crooked nose, for they make you who you are.
So let’s take this new month of July to be ourselves and love ourselves by choosing our attitudes and changing the world!
