A while ago I wrote a short and simple blog post called “It’s okay to be you.”
I wonder if adding another way of thinking about it could help:
You just ARE you.
Whether it’s okay or not (and it is), you are you.
If you are an anxious you, a distracted you, a busy you, a depressed you, a frustrated you, an over-achieving you, a socially awkward you, a tired you, or a can’t-gym-these-days you . . . that is just . . . you.
You are it.
It is you.
Trying to not be you won’t work.
So . . . may as well be okay with who you are.
It’s an adventure.
Dance with it.
