If there’s one thing I’ve learned, BE YOURSELF! Sing it loud and proud. I’m grateful there isn’t another me on the planet. Guess what? There isn’t another you in this world either. All the more reason to celebrate your beautiful self.

Let’s talk self-love. Being yourself is also about loving who you are in your own skin. More so than not, we’re diligently trying, to be the best we can be in this lifetime. When we visit improving ourselves, often times we can get caught up in thinking something is wrong with us. Or, we think we need to change. Rather, we may need to modify our behaviors or change our thought process.

Self-love and being yourself requires practice. It’s empowering and necessary. There’s so much that goes along with taking care of yourself. While this a big topic and we hear it all the time, I don’t grow weary of how important it is to make sure you’re healthy. Remaining healthy in mind and spirit is essential.


I’ve also learned being yourself is liberating. You don’t need to measure up or exhaust yourself while putting on a show. It’s also not fair to others when you’re not who you say or portray yourself to another. In other words… it’s deceitful.

Imagine (if you’re not already) how good it would feel to live for you? It’s not your job to please others, measure up to other people’s standards, or play by another’s rules. Once others opinions of you don’t matter anymore… WOW… now your LIVING!

Go about and be your wonderful self!
