Be You

Something I have been thinking a lot about lately is the saying BE YOU. 

I first started thinking about BE YOU when I attended the 2014 LuLaRoe Convention. The main focus of convention was BE YOU! As I listened to one of the speakers talk about how their life changed when they decided to just be themselves it made me start thinking.

I first started thinking back to high school and always being worried about what everyone thought about me. I was always so concerned about what others thought that I don’t think I was ever truly comfortable enough to just be me. Now as I look back I realize that as much as I was worried about what others were thinking about me they were just as worried about what others thought about them. I was also feeling the same way as a young mother. I felt like I was always being judged and wondered if I was being the mother I was supposed to be. Was I raising my children right? I was so worried about what others thought about me!! This is when I decided that BE YOU was something I wanted to transfer into every aspect of my life.

This being said, the last two months I have really been trying to live by the idea of BE YOU. I now know that it is ok to be myself and as long as I am true to myself others will respect that, and I am ok with everyone not accepting me. As long as I am happy and being me that is all that matters. Some things I have noticed happen in the last 2 months have really surprised me and been amazing. I will share some of them with you!

I have been so much happier! 

I am more relaxed. 

I enjoy my day, and my time with my little boys. 

I have a higher self-esteem. 

I am not so quick to judge others. 

I would love for everyone to live by the idea of BE YOU!  I can’t wait to see how this continues to improve my life and the life of others around me. I also hope this idea will transfer to my children as I teach them and raise them. I want them to be the best them they can be.

  1. Love it!! I've used that sang for years and even have an awesome T-shirt that says Be-YOU-Tiful. ;) I love hearing from all my fellow BE-YOU-TIFUL friends (including those I haven't even met yet).
