Be Yourself


This quote sounds a bit intimidating, doesn’t it? Being human, is hard enough, and for those of us who want to live up to the expectations to the ‘Jone’s next door’ can be exhausting.

We run into many challenges in life when we aren’t comfortable with whom we are, and the great value we have to offer. We each have a treasure hidden in our lives that we take for granted and if we aren’t careful, we allow the enemy to rob us of the very thing God has entrusted to us.Β  Our inner voice, our inner strength, our unique qualities and unique contributions we make daily to the world.

We are here to know our truth and learn how to speak and live with confidence and pleasure. All too often, we face the pressure to conform whether from others or ourselves. But it is really important that we feel free to be true to who we are as a person.

As a youngster, I would wear two different colored socks around the house. Even today, I catch myself doing the same under boots or sneakers. You think I care what my family or friends say…nah. But I do jokingly tell them that’s my creative side. πŸ™‚

We are all unique…stop trying to be like someone else and be yourself, everyone else is taken.

  1. Thanks for the reminder to stay true. I can’t read enough about it as I use people’s blogs to bring my inner voice and truest self to the forefront. Meaningful post. A great reminder about the outer world creeping in. Been writing about my inner voice as well to get to know her and see how right she has always been… No pressure on reading my blog. It’s nice to share with like minds…

  2. Very true words, but being oneself assumes that one genuinely knows who one really is and I must say, I often doubt that many people know who THEY REALLY ARE.
    Who takes the time to discover themselves; what they really want from life (not what others dictate) and how are we suppossed to “find ourselves” with all the superficial interference that surrounds us?
    We must all find our own special path if we are to discover ourselves and when we genuinely embark on such a journey, it will be all worth while! πŸ™‚
    Kind regards from my two furry friends and myself over at the “Gilmours Nice Place” blog. πŸ™‚

  3. Good post with wise & inspiring words.
    It’s interesting how many in the rush to be ‘different’ end up conforming in another way. Being true to yourself is vital, that way you grow.
    I often wear odd socks, but that’s because I have a bit of a thing distinguishing colours.
    (But I’m a 65+ male so it’s sort of expected of me; my wife is very helpful in the matter)
