International Being You Day invites you to celebrate being you.
Today, you need to look beyond the projections of society and explore what it means to truly be you, beyond the search and need for perfection. It is a day to celebrate the beauty of you and your uniqueness, flaws, capabilities, and what you bring to this world.
Being present and being truly you will allow you to beat anything, weather any storm, create the change your body and your mind need to be fulfilled, allow in any possibilities, allow dreams to come true, and have total choice over everything that surrounds you.
Do you feel there should be more to this game we call life? Do you believe that the world can be a great place? Do you challenge yourself to reach your goals? Only being yourself will allow you to feel and achieve these things.
Forget stereotypes, forget the person you’re supposed to be, the guy in the magazine, the guy in the gym. Just be you. Create a healthy relationship with your mind, appreciate all the little things you’re awesome at, and be grateful for them.
Maybe you think you’re a misfit, a square peg in a round hole, a dreamer who dares to dream, different to everyone else. But that’s perfectly fine, that’s what makes you who you are. So don’t ever hide away from that.
Can you imagine what a world full of people truly being themselves would be like? How diverse everything would be. If people didn’t care about what the next guy thought if we all had buckets of self-esteem and confidence in ourselves. It would be a much better place, and you being you can help ignite the change.
We can all offer something to the world, no matter how small or simple we think it may be.
Whether it’s helping someone in need, a friend, a stranger, or simply listening to someone’s story. You have your place here, you are needed. So keep being you. The world requires it.
Be yourself, don’t pretend to be someone you’re not. Learn to love the bloke everyone else loves.
