be who you are

some people work so hard at not being who they are.
and many of us have had times in our lives when we sacrificed who we were for what we thought we needed to be.
my son wrote this in his gratitude journal when he was 8 years old. 
i have printed it and hung it by the bathroom mirror as a reminder for us each morning and each night.
i appreciate the misspelling. it's who he was when he was 8.
the truth is it's about all the things that make us who we are. 
it's not about perceptions, assumptions, or facades. 
it's not about compromising who we are for the sake of anyone else. 
experiences with people who do not know who we really are ... are not true experiences for either party.
every day that you live falsely is a day you sacrifice yourself and your freedom to give, have, feel, love, and be loved, as only you can.
be you.
be love.
be happy.
