Be You

Do not throw away truth in favour of illusions - ACIM



I was listening to Oprah Winfrey's Super Soul Sessions yesterday, the topic was "Your Truth". I was quite enthralled with her story- I guess who isn't right? It's Oprah! What resonated with me was her story on how someone gave her the platform to be herself and it was for her the best advice she ever took. In her words, she made quite a lot of money being herself. She had a phenomenal life being herself.

How many times have we not been given permission to - just be your yourself?

How many times have we been asked to be a little more this or a little more that, or a little less this or a little less that?

How many people say change how you look to fit in, change how you speak, change what you wear!

Here is Ms Winfrey saying do you, be your best you, work it baby!

I was heartened by that advice because I am a total advocate being your best self.

Who can be you better than you?

No one!

Who do you have to pretend to be you?

No one!


Be you. Be all in.fall get up.learn.do it again.repeat

Peace
