So be you
The you that’s in your heart, not your mind
The mind can tell the brain almost anything and it’ll believe it
Your heart won’t
It knows who you really are
So be you
Be present at all times and be you
I recently went to a conference and Bob Goff spoke
Everybody there wanted to be Bob Goff
Everyone wanted his stories
But what about yours?
The people in your life
Your parents, your friends
They know your story
What someone else says or does or contributes, is not your story
Your prose, your party
Your song, sonnet and show
That makes you, you
It’s easy to rail against who says what
Who did what
Who didn’t do anything
And we retaliate
But who does that serve?
Who wins when we aren’t “in” our own lives?
When are lives are small and
so are our dreams, the whole world suffers
When you really live and
not just exist, the whole world wins.
