During the Creative Process
I saw a headline the other day that simply stated
Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.
This got a giggle out of me because it is so simple and yet so true.
The only gift, the very best gift we ever have to share with anyone is ourselves.
Our true selves.
The more we can be and live to that higher self, the real us, the more everyone around us benefits.
Years back, I had a friend who was young enough to not have all the artifice built into his life yet and would always let it be known just where he was and what was happening.
He was telling me one day of the medicines he was on and pointed to one pill and said–“That’s for the voices in my head”–just matter of fact–no excuses, no apologies, no embarrassment.
Of course I’m thinking–we’ve all got voices in our heads–we’re just afraid to own up to it! (You know what I’m talking about here–the what were you thinking?–you’re never gonna make it—boy do you look fat in that outfit voices).
The reality is the more we are ourselves, the more permission is given to others to be themselves. And that is all that any of us really crave at the end of the day–to be liked (loved) for who we really are. By being your true self you give others permission to live to their highest best.
So, what’s it gonna be?
Who we gonna be?
(FYI…everyone else is already taken;)
