Have the courage to be yourself and you will be eternally happy.
Courage, what does this mean to you? Courage comes in many shapes and forms, but being yourself is the strongest of them all. Acting out one’s true personality is difficult for some people because others put them down, or others make fun, etc., but being yourself and doing everything the way you aspire your life to be is the best kind of courage. I love how Bethany Hamilton describes courage; “Courage doesn’t mean you don’t get afraid. Courage means you don’t let fear stop you.” I truly believe in this quote and I don’t think it could have been more perfectly stated. If people make fun or judge you, don’t stoop down to their level. Fulfill yourself with loads of courage and say to yourself, “I am who I am and no one can stop me from believing in myself and being who I want to be.” Everyone has their own, unique characteristics which makes the world so awesome!
If everyone was the same and no one had the courage to present their unique characteristics, the world would not be the way it is today. We were made to be completely different human beings and we should all embrace that fact. Express yourself in ways that make you tremendous! You don’t have to follow the trends, dress the way you want, wear your hair the way you want to style it, and do what you believe is right for you! In the end, you will always be happier if you follow your aspirations and desires.
And, like I say always, remember to keep a smile on your face when you’re courageous. This is the most important part of being yourself. Express your true happiness and it will become contagious. Courage is an amazing aspect of life and I want to challenge all of you to be yourselves and to follow your dreams! Life is too short to not do what makes you happy.
