Ever wonder what it’d be like to just completely be you? Just being your authentic self?
You know, not being hesitant to post that picture on Instagram or video on snapchat because you’re scared of what other people may think.
Like actually starting a conversation with someone because you simply want to. Or speaking up in that meeting because you have a great idea.
Or promoting your YouTube Channel, because you think it pretty damn awesome.
You know just doing what you want. Living in your truth.
Well, I think it’d be pretty dope. To just be yourself.
I want to see what happens when I do. So I’m taking on the Be Yourself Challenge, where you guessed it, you just be yourself for let’s say 30 days.
Here are the rules.
If you like something and you want to share it with the world, share it.
If you want to say something that you think would be great for the world to know, say it.
If you want to dance in the middle of the street on a rainy day, dance.
If you want to say hi to someone across the room, say hi.
If you want to wear that new shirt, even though you feel like it’s a little “out there,” wear it.
If you want to book that flight to Barcelona, Spain, book it.
If you want to sing to the top of your lungs, dang it, sing.
If you want to change up your look, and try something new, change it.
If you want to look for another job, even if the pay maybe less, but it’s something you love, baby apply.
If you want to bake brownies and give them away to your neighbors, give it.
If you want to get your praise on, but aint nobody standing up in church, please get your praise on.
If your song comes on in the middle of you running your mile, and you feel the urge to dance, child dance.
If you want to compliment someone on their shoes, compliment,
If you want to kiss someone, (with their consent of course), kiss them!
If you want to smile at someone, smile.
If you want to laugh, laugh.
If you want to write, write.
If you want to draw, draw.
Basically if you want to do something, do it.
Just remember, whatever you do, do it with love and good intent.
At the end of the day, people are attracted to what’s real. And you are seriously doing yourself a diservice by not being you. Being you is what makes you so special. Unique. Great.
Can’t nobody do you, like you do you!
So who’s with me? Who’s taking on the challenge? Let us know what your first ‘you’ activity is going to be!
