Stay True to Yourself

The most important thing that you can do for yourself is stay true to who you really are.  Our society has it drilled into all of our heads that we aren’t quite good enough and we need to strive to meet unreachable standards.  I am a true believer in living the life that you want to live. You do you is one of the Bon blog’s core principles.

You Do You

You do you means being 100% comfortable with who you are.  What others think of you and say about you is completely irrelevant to how you live your life.  At the end of the day the only opinion that matters about you is yours.  

You aren’t thin enough.  You aren’t tall enough.  Your hair isn’t the right color.  Over and over society will try to tell you that you aren’t good enough.  Unfortunately, the more you’re told something the more likely you are to believe it. Even if it’s not true.  Well, I’m here to tell you that it just isn’t true.  No matter what anyone says, you are great just the way you are! You can accomplish anything that you put your mind to as long as you believe in what you’re doing.  All you have to do is allow yourself to shoot for the stars! There is nothing in this world that will hold you back from doing what you truly want to do, or being who you really are.

Working hard is important. But there is something that matters even more: believing in yourself.
-Harry Potter

You Are Unique.  You Are Important.  And You Matter.

What’s holding you back? Step out of your comfort zone.  Do something you’ve never done before but you’ve always wanted to try.  Whether it’s picking up a drawing class, finding a new job, or switching up your usual hair style to match one of the hundreds of hairdo pins on your Pinterest.  It is amazing how the slightest change can make a woman feel on top of the world.  Learn to be comfortable with the person you want to be and show her to the world.

You only live once, so don’t live your life hiding in the shadows of who you aspire to be.
– The Bon

There will always be obstacles in the way.  Nothing comes easy in life.  Be the unique person you are. Know that you are important.  And show the world that you matter.  You are strong and can do the impossible. All you have to do is believe.  I believe in you, I know you can do anything and everything.

Staying true to yourself never goes out of style.  There is only one of you, so make that person worth it.  I know the greatest beauty comes from within each and every one of you.  Physical beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  Inner beauty grabs the spotlight for itself.  Inner beauty shines on everyone, catches them and holds them in it’s embraces.  Inner beauty makes you more beautiful.

You do you!
