There’s a saying….
People never change, they just become more of who they actually are….
at least that’s how it should be, but yet often times it’s not.
You encounter others in your life (family, friends, spouses, etc.) who try to change you and make you more of what they want.
You should not change to please someone else or fit the box they wish to put you in.
Be who you were born to be!
Be what they aren’t…YOU!
Stand up for who you are!
Believe in who you are!
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
You can accomplish it though!
Stand strong to your beliefs and who you are.
Not that I’m looking for love but think y’all know what I mean.
People should like/love/care about you as a person, the person you are…not the person they think they can mold you into for their own selfish wants.
I’d rather have a few who care, accept me for who I am than to alter who I am to fit their mold.
I’m finding out more and more every day that people are having a hard time “figuring me out”
Which is ironic since I think of myself as an easy person to figure out, what you see is what you get.
Though my bestest friend Julie, says I’m a paradox and that I’m constantly coming up with new ways to throw people off what they believe they know of me.
hmmmm perhaps it was too much telling her about bowling and my purple flower rubber rain boots from PlanetShoes.com?
But seriously, I’m just me.
Or maybe it was bit much with my bedazzled camo cargo shorts and my Rebel boots from KalsoEarthShoes.com?
I’m honestly just me.
I wear what I want.
I don’t wear makeup (other than nail polish–love that)
I don’t do anything with my hair (wash and go)
I don’t fit any one type
I’m just me
and I’m good with that
“Be Yourself, everyone else is taken.”
— Oscar Wilde
That’s the way it should be!
Each one of us is unique and our own individual.
Don’t allow others to dictate who you are.
As for me…
I’m Tara Burner…
Blogger, runner, future power lifter (Yep I’m putting it out here so I hold myself accountable!), foodie, social media networker, reviewer, weight loss coach, not afraid of manual labor, sun lover, eco friendly greenie, no longer vegan but still not touching red meat, contemporary natural hippie flower child, friend to few but those I am know I’ll be there for them (I’m about quality not quantity) love an array of music from the oldies (yep I admit it-still remember listening to my dad’s vinyl and 8tracks! wow yep I’m that old) to pop to Christian to Country (some..not all the achy breaky stuff–have to admit I love Carrie Underwoods “When He Cheats” song!), ironically love watching America’s Next Top Model and Jerseylicious (think the drama is hysterical), yet love action & war movies too. I’m just me…there’s no one or two words that can describe me other than being myself.
Question of the day
Are you being yourself?
Or do you find yourself changing to accommodate others?
Who are you?
Tell us one thing about yourself that others may not know
