be yourself

Be True to You

Remember that not everyone is going to like you or what you do or what you stand for…and that is OK!

Such Wise Words

Relevant for today…and every day.

Ignore the Opinions of Others

I saw this image while scrolling through my Facebook feed and it made me laugh.

However, when I thought about the saying above I realized just how true it is. We should never allow ourselves to lose sleep over the opinions of small-minded people. They are the ones who would love nothing more than to pull you down to their level.

Insecurity breeds contempt for those who would rather fly with the eagles than wallow in the mud.

Rise high and soar!

We all need a little reminder.

From time to time, we should stop what we’re doing and realize this.

Each of us is imbued with beauty, strength and intelligence.

One person’s abilities complement another’s, and on and on it goes.

Our traits help to weave the vibrant blanket of humankind across the globe.

Embrace your traits, all of them.

There will never be another YOU.

His Black Dress – a blog worth following

I have been using Tumblr now for the past few months, and one of the first blogs I ran across there was His Black Dress.

What a fabulous blog. I can’t get over how much I love it. Check it out here:

Stop by and look around. And while you’re at it, allow Michael to help you see that all clothes are for everyone, no matter the gender.

When I was younger, there were times I would dress in drag. (more…)

You can change the world

If you are different, revel in your difference.

If you are brilliant, be sure to shine.

If you are a rebel, be rebellious.

If you are fabulous, toss sparkles into the sky.

Be you, always, and let the world see what it could be.

Because of you being you, it can.
