Be Yourself Everyone Else is Already Taken ~ Oscar Wilde
This summer, I had an opportunity to experience multiple shopping extravaganzas. Somehow, I always find myself in those shops with those glass or wooden placards that have these kitschy sayings…I’ll share a few and end with my favorite.
The ever popular, Live Love Laugh, while I agree with the message…I’m over it!
If you can’t be kind, be quiet if you are not among close friends…words to live by! Among friends, the saying is…If you don’t have anything nice to say, sit down for awhile
Not my circus not my monkeys…basically, keep your drama away from me.
I love you to moon and back…um instead of a sign…see to it that the intended person has no doubt about this…
Wear fabulous underwear even if you are the only person who is going to see it! One of my all-time favorites…a rule to live by! Wearing beautiful underwear will make you feel happy all day. And…you deserve it! Splurge a little…or a lot!
Families are like fudge mostly sweet with a few nuts…I heard that!
I turn 44 this month, I know I can’t believe it either…my age old wisdom can be summed up in these few words…Be yourself everyone else is taken! My least favorite type of person is a disingenuous one…I find it difficult to trust to, therefore, it is extremely difficult to be friends with you. Life is exhausting enough without trying to be something you are NOT…so don’t! Take me for instance, people love me or hate me…very few people would say, “She’s OK”! I know within 15 minutes of meeting someone if I like them or not…I’ve been wrong three times in my life…and boy was I wrong! I’ll take a wolf any day over a “wolf in sheep’s clothing” be REAL! Don’t try to be someone you are not, don’t try to be the person someone else wants you to be…just be YOU! YOU are one of a kind…an original…whether people love you or hate you…be yourself!
