Be Yourself

"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.
