JUST BE YOU
Are you proud of Who You Are? Do you feel good about your age, health, and overall life? Are you happy?
Just be you!
The fastest way to unhappiness is to lie to yourself or try to be something you're not. Trying to keep a false identity is like trying to make chocolate hold its form in direct sunlight on hot summer day. Things are gonna get real messy real fast.
It can take hard work and courage to be yourself. But it takes even more effort to be someone you're not - and never will be. Whether it's a little lie about your age, or a great big lie about something else, the person who gets hurt the most by any lie you tell is you. Because you deny yourself the awesomeness of Who You Are.
There's only one YOU on this planet. Think about that. With over 6 billion people, there is only ONE, just ONE, Y-O-U.
There's a reason for that. It's because YOU are somebody special. You have a unique purpose to fulfill. It doesn't matter what your role is, how much money you make, where you live, what car you drive, or your social status. That's not what it's about. It's about being true to Who You Are.
Just by being Who You Are you will touch people's lives. Maybe in little ways. Maybe in profound ways. It doesn't matter because you will touch their lives by being you. Just you.
You may impact a lot of people or just a few. You may inspire others through superb example or by your mistakes, through your victories or by your failures. It doesn't matter. What matters is that you are true to you.
You are the reason you are here. You were given this life to live because no one but you can live it. You have been given the body, mind and spirit perfect for your journey which you get to help create by what you think, choose and do every day of your life.
No one else can be you the way you can. No one else can live your life for you. No one else can take your place on this planet. Nobody but you!
So if you're going to try to be somebody, be the best you possible.
And just be YOU!
