I seem to write about the importance of being yourself all the time.
Either I'm writing articles on the subject at EzineArticles.com, or I'm sharing my thoughts on a blog (as a guest writer), or I'm talking about it here at SelfHelpCollective.com.
And it seems such a trite subject to talk about, such an obvious thing to want for anyone, that how could anyone NOT want to be themselves.
Meaning why would anyone want to read (or listen to) words about being yourself?
Well, here I am in the video below, urging you (again) to do just that: to BE Yourself
The reason? We live our lives so 'defended' against painful things - loss, hurt, being wrong... - that we stop ourselves from being who we truly are.
Yes, being yourself is a completely liberating act of living in the moment, as you are in the moment, as if all the other moments in your life NEVER happened. (Scary, huh, and a clear reason why most of us never truly get there, when it comes to being yourself.)
Being yourself means being present
Being yourself means doing things that feel good for you
Being yourself means acting from love rather than fear.
Being yourself means lots and lots of things that you're not doing right now, probably.
