Thank you, for being you

You may not realize what a gift you are, just for existing and being yourself.

Nobody else has ever been just like you. The exact combination of stuff that is you, is one of a kind. Because of this, you don’t really have any competition, and you don’t ever have to be anything but you. Your spirit is unique in all of time, and nobody else can ever replace you.

Thank you, for being you.

The best part of this is that you get to decide how and who you want to be.

Sometimes, because of this uniqueness, you may feel invalidated. Especially if you go through a time when nobody seems to get you, or you are growing and suddenly don’t quite agree with the prevailing rules of the group you’ve been in. Or you have always been different, and try as you might, couldn’t seem to fit in.

If everything out there seems to be telling you you’re wrong for being you, it’s hard to see that actually being you is a good fit. So you may try to be like the others, in order to fit in.

Meanwhile, you find ways to not listen to that longing voice inside of you, that is trying to tell you what your own truth is.

Of course, it’s fun to play at being someone else, to imagine being another way. That’s why we have Hollywood. We each need a place to visualize, imagine, and play. To stretch ourselves, re-imagine who we could be. It’s beautiful to see and hear other people’s stories, especially if they inspire us to become more of who we can be, who we want to become.

Who you think you are may be vastly different from who you actually are.

If you limit the possibilities for yourself of who you can be, you may be selling yourself short.

You have the free will to decide to be yourself, or not. It’s fun to play at the many roles you have in life, and it can be even more fun to decide to become yourself.

Once you get to know who you are, and love what you know, you will never be bored a day in your life. By knowing yourself, you become far more interesting for you to be around, and so you will want yourself around a lot more.

“Be Who You Are and Say What You Feel Because Those Who Mind Don’t Matter and Those Who Matter Don’t Mind.” ~Dr. Seuss
