Be yourself; Everyone Else is Already Taken
For years I would look around look at what other people would do and simply copy them. I lacked courage and conviction to simply be myself and lived every day with a strong negative inner voice. I walked with a little buzz of anxiety, wherever I went.
Concerned about the ‘What will everyone else think?’ question, I would often hide, or not do things because I was afraid of being singled out. For not being normal. For being different.
Well, I do just happen to be different. I can be myself. I can explore with confidence. I can say No. I can choose to take off and travel. I can share my time, or just find a quiet patch on the beach to watch and think and just be me.
