I’m going to take the advice in my post title, today, and be myself.
That’s the easiest thing to do, isn’t it? I mean, who else could I possibly be? Haven’t I’ve been being myself since the day I was born?
Be yourself, right now, and think about your reactions to that title. Have people told you to be yourself? Who, why, where, and when? Have you ever told yourself that? What was the result?
I’m just being myself, now, asking questions about other people.
When I’m being myself, I often like to explain what’s behind my actions. Therefore, I’ll tell you that I’m writing about “Be Yourself” today because I said that to two people I love, yesterday, who are both nervous about interviews.
I don’t know if “Be Yourself” is helpful advice. It’s difficult to be yourself when you’re
- meeting somebody new,
- wanting to impress,
- concerned about the possibility of rejection, and
- invested in a particular outcome.
I’m just being myself whenever I include a bulleted list of examples, like that one.
I’m going to be myself and show you some photos I recently took, hoping that some of them fit today’s topic. Be yourself, please, when you look at them.
I took this photo
when I was being myself, stuck in Boston traffic and wondering, “What IS that on the side of the Hancock tower?”
When I got home from work, I was myself — I googled it and found this article, “Artist Behind Mural on Former Hancock Building Revealed.”
Myself, I did NOT know
- that was a temporary art installation by French artist JR or
- that the Hancock tower is now the “former Hancock building.”
I guess I was too busy being myself.
If you were being yourself and writing this post, what music would you include?
Thanks to all who are themselves, including you!
