“If you’re lucky enough to have something that makes you different from everybody else, don’t EVER change.” – Taylor Swift
Understanding that though, Taylor Swift, may be all sorts of wonderful to some. The exact opposite for others and by all means appears to be a boy crazy song writing genius or fool, depending on the camp you fall in. These words from one of the greeting cards she helped create, carry some serious truth and wisdom.
We all have something that makes us unique and special. Enjoy it. Embrace it. Love it and let help define the incredible person you were meant to be! Don’t let someone else define the great you will become. Let people encourage you, cheer you on, even constructively offer feed back, but don’t let someone else define YOU!
Now it would be foolish to say or think that becoming the person you’re going to be will be without challenge. It won’t. Challenges, difficulties, and adversity and how you deal with them, is a part of what helps shape you. Overall, it’s important for you to recognize that you are an incredible person. Becoming that person will be a work in progress the rest of your days. Embracing yourself as a whole is an ongoing journey. Be sure you are the one charting your course and choosing the stamps in life’s passport!
Here is to having the best Monday ever!!!
