Life's Lessons #7 BE Yourself
I always thought that BEing myself was a bit of a raw deal. I mean, it was so easy to BE like someone else. Even several someone elses!! But the deal was BE Myself and so I kept at it. And at it. And at it.
Now I am happier about this whole proposition. I am able to embrace it, even its prickly parts. I realise there is no one else I CAN BE.
The problem with BE Yourself, from my perspective, was that DOing so seemed like the perfect set-up. I always fell short of what I imagined I should BE BEing. Or who.
Recently I found a thing that I have stuck on my mirror in the bathroom. It says: In a world where you can be anything, be yourself. I see this often and every single time I stop and think about it.
I have had, and I still DO have, a lot of ideas for the improvement of ME. I've had these ideas about others, too, but NOT so much as I DO for ME. Perhaps this is NOT such an awful thing. Perhaps this is simply BEing myself, or, BEing Currie.
I call this blog BE Currie BEcause it is someplace I can come and show up as just myself. Messy, imperfect, curious, thoughty, and as I am. Essentially, BEing Currie. In the moment. Or moments.
