Be Yourself

“Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde

Be Yourself

Oscar Fingal O’Flahertie Wills Wilde, October 16, 1854 to November 30, 1900

From a very young age, we are told to just, be yourself. Great advise at any age. But, some of us don’t know who we are or what truly drives us and our passions. So how can we “be ourselves” if we are not sure who we are?

Throughout our life, we will have beliefs, experiences, hobbies, interests, and skills that form our lives. When we are young, we may not realize that all of these things make us who we are. For some it may take half of their life to discover who they are and how to be yourself.

It’s difficult to work, pay bills and find time for our passions. But then again, what are we living for if not to follow our dreams and what we truly love and believe?

I saw a video the other day that got my attention titled, Be Yourself. It’s a ten minute award-winning documentary about being yourself. I was blown away by the young pianist in the film, Ash Williams who said, “In my dream I love to play the piano and I hope that everybody else has a great dream about something that they love to do.”

Words of wisdom from an eight year old boy, who is following his dream and has already learned to just be yourself.
