I have been asking myself a lot of questions about myself. Odd…I know…but I find myself doing that often…so I figured maybe you do, too.
I ask myself things from “What do I want to do today?” to “Who am I?” on a regular basis. These questions are incredibly frustrating and scary when you take into account what you believe in, what you think your future looks like, and how you were raised.
I scare myself often with wondering what my purpose is…and I always get the same answer. Be me. Be genuine. Do my best. When I am being the most genuine…not trying to fit peoples expectations of me or my own interpretations of what I am supposed to be doing….I always receive at least one message that expresses that I have inspired someone…or I have made someones day.
That doesn’t mean I am special…it means that by being genuine…I have reminded others to do the same.
Does that mean that you just throw away all responsibilities? No. I think to function in the world…it’s respectful to follow the basic rules. Does that mean we should be unkind to people we disagree with. Absolutely not. Being genuine doesn’t mean we attack others…it means we don’t attack ourselves.
So the message of today…Be you. Be the person you want to be. Even if it’s outside the invisible boundaries you have been kept within for so long. I think the real you is wonderful, beautiful, and needs to be seen.
If you are reading this…I don’t mean this in a cliche way. I mean it in my most genuine way…I love the real you…and I don’t want to every encourage you to be anything but what you a meant to be…YOU.
