Here is something I’ve learned recently. You will find other people that have the same opinions, hobbies, likes, dislikes, or experiences as you, but you will likely never find another person that has the exact same opinions, hobbies, likes, dislikes, and experiences as you all balled in to one. Am I the only person on the planet who loves Harry Potter, has a rescue dog, or struggles to keep succulents alive? Individually, no, because let’s get real: everyone loves Harry Potter, rescue dogs are the new pet rock, and succulents are hard as f*** to keep alive despite all of the articles and blog posts claiming otherwise. But, the combination of things that makes me who I am, although the individual qualities are likely shared by others, are specific to me and me alone.
My point is friends, figure out who the fuck you are and fucking own it because who you are is 1. amazing 2. unique and 3. the only real thing you’ll ever have in this world. The sooner you find yourself, the sooner you’ll find your passion, your people, and your happy.
Is the person that you put out into the world a reflection of your true self? Do the people that you know actually know you, or do they know who you want them to know? If your friends were to describe you to someone else, would you agree with that description? These are the questions you should be asking yourself because if you can answer yes to each then you are just one step closer to finding your happy and your YOU.
Now, I’m not saying to run out there today and show the world all of your crazy, some things are meant to be kept to yourself. But, your aura, your YOU, is something the world deserves to experience.
