Mommy Delicious Facebook page. It read, "Be your best you."
I must admit that it took me awhile to get to this point where I'm comfortable and content in just being who I am. (Chalk it up to my quarter-life crisis, where I was trying to find my way after an unexpected pregnancy and a not-so-sweet relationship gone sour.) And it has taken me a little bit longer to be comfortable and content in openly showing others who I am. (Now I see that it's totally worth it.)
This post comes to you live from the west coast. I'm in San Jose, California hanging out at the eBay offices, and talking it up and having a good time with other bloggers in the eBay Parent Panel Ambassador Program. (More on that in a later post.)
Although we've been playing a lot, we've also been working a lot, and during one of our sessions yesterday, I was given a compliment about the work that I do in the blogosphere and on the Internet. At first, I was like, "Huh, me?!"
But then I sat back. And I just listened. And I took it all in by absorbing what the people were saying about me. That's when I realized just how important it is to embrace who you truly are and to be your best and realest self. Wholly and completely.
People are observing you and all the things that you do, even if it's from a distance. Every time you make a move, you're leaving another footprint in your legacy. Shouldn't it be the best and most accurate "you" possible?
I think so!
In a world where people can pull you in many different directions, it's not always easy to maintain your sense of self. But it's imperative. And once you've maintained yourself, upgrade. And maintain that upgraded self. And then upgrade again. And again. And again.
Until you're at your best.
Until you are the best you.
What's one thing you can do to start that process today?
