Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. -Dr.Suess.
I got to sit down with my eldest, Beth, today my podcast, You Be You & I'll Be Me. We tried to think of the above quote but for some reason we couldn't come up with it. But it really does embody our conversation about self-esteem and growing up in an age of social media.
Everyone needs to unplug now and then. Leave the phone at home and go out in nature, reconnect to who you really are. Exercise, volunteer, do something for someone else who could use a helping hand. Don't compare yourself to anyone else and know that its ok to be different. In fact, being yourself and not conforming to what anyone else thinks you should be is the most important thing you can do for yourself! Be you, have fun and get it done!
Following your dreams is hard work but you can be anything you want to be if you want it bad enough and are willing to work for it.
