Be Yourself
Published on Thursday, June 4, 2015 by

This is something I can’t do myself right now for several reasons. Not completely, at least. Between work and criticism around me I have to fit in molds that don’t quite feel right. One day I will be able to finally be who I really am. I’ll be the old woman with the pink hair, TRUST ME. This phoenix will rise from the ashes.

In the meantime, I try to encourage my daughter to be herself. My heart fills when I hear her encourage others to be themselves as well. She is a champion for those who do not fit in the box. I am so lucky.

My daughter has her own restrictions, of course. There are times in life when one must play by the rules. But when there is free time and a little give, I always want my children to be themselves.

That is why, at her request, my daughter was in the hair salon not three hours after school let out for summer.

So the next time you feel like taking off your shoes and jumping in puddles, please jump away no matter who is watching. And if you want to add a little color to your life, I say DO IT. And do it BIG!
