Be yourself

"Be yourself; everyone else is already taken," Oscar Wilde.

What a funny way to remind us to be our authentic selves. I remember once hearing Oprah tell her audience they could be all they wanted to be, but to not try to be Oprah, as she had that one covered. In my life I have sometimes been told/asked, "Who do you think you are?" Sometimes that is said or inferred to us about how we are handling this dementia journey. Perhaps it is said whenever one does something in an individual way, without following the social norm. Who do I think I am? I know I am what I think, so I think peace, well being, fun. Who do you think you are?
