Being Yourself Can Seem Strange to Others...

have you ever noticed people are very critical of how you look?
i have to say many have inspired me (betsey johnson is just one) through the years to “be an original” and i still hold strong to those thoughts, maybe even more today!! i love to encourage others to do the same…after all, we’re all free to be who we are even if it’s mimicking others in the way we dress, sing, write, dance, play sports, etc…people copy designers all the time, male and female, all over the planet!
all this to say and hopefully remind others to “be yourself” don’t be a copy…others are always trying to make you into who they think you should be…well i ask you this…what the heck is wrong with who you are? if YOU don’t like who you are “change it”!!! find what makes you tick…think about what you love, who you admire, those things play a big part in what you become.
just be sure it fits you like your own skin…i do suggest you use good judgement before you take the leap of change, but nevertheless, become who you were created to be, and have fun doing it! you’ll be much happier with yourself and others will love you for it…it’s your world, spread your wings and fly…i did!!!

I love all forms of encouragement, especially if it involves humor...the greatest thing to me is watching people be uplifted ...also extending grace to those who feel down or condemned. I found it is a powerful tool... Everyone's life is valuable and I would love to bring a little bit of light and joy into their lives..selah~~~

  1. I agree with you that you will be happier with yourself.I have always tried to be myself, sometimes though it does have its downsides. A lot of people cant or wont accept the fact that I am a bit wacky for lack of a better word. In the end it doesn’t bother me I just let them pass me on by as I move forward and they tread water.

    • hey Bob! i had to chuckle when i read your post…i understand what you’re saying…sure some people don’t “approve” of who we are, but like you said, can’t let it bother you 🙂 as long as we can put our heads on our pillow at night knowing we’re not being snobs, we are who we are, some work is always needed (i speak for myself) but eventually i will get to the real me and be a finished work…but for now i’m a work in progress…until i’m complete i’m free to keep trying and comfy with the real me, not the one who everyone wants us to be ;)…thanks for sharing, i always enjoy your comments! enjoy your day!
