|"Be yourself; everyone else is already taken." Oscar Wilde|
It is funny to think that we humans have trouble being ourselves. Otters and wolves and squirrels and trees do not try to be something they are not, but we humans -- from a very early age -- are encouraged to hide parts of who we are, put on masks and become someone we were never meant to be. I remember hearing Oprah say once, "Don't try to be Oprah -- I already have that one covered." While it is appropriate to emulate others and learn from the behavior of those we admire, only you can be you and only I can be I. Let's support each other in being true to who we are. What if that's why we are here?: to become fully who we were meant to be.
