The most beautiful thing about anyone is when they have accepted the freedom to be them-self. There is a famous quote by writer/poet Oscar Wilde where he said, “Be yourself, everyone is already taken.” This is so true. All too often, we get caught up in trying to be like other people that we lose the reality of who we really are.
When you are acting like someone else, you really lose the beauty in who you were meant to be. The authenticity of your truth within gets lost in being something you are not. Oprah Winfrey was quoted on her show Master Class as saying, “I can be myself and I can make the best of that.” She openly spoke about how important it was for her to instead of emulating those she admired like Phil Donahue or Barbara Walters, it was best to be herself. Each of us have our own unique gifts, talents and abilities that make us beautiful inside which radiates out.
“Anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are, you will never ever reach your personal potential.”
