Are you comfortable with being yourself on a consistent basis or do you possess many faces? #ILIKEME (Question #4)

Are you comfortable with being yourself on a consistent basis or do you possess many faces?

I’ve been pushing the idea that when you’re just being yourself, and you find a way to be successful and happy without compromising yourself, you’re really winning.

I live by those words. You can’t go wrong when you’re living in your truth and when you’re honest with yourself (and other people). With that said, I am comfortable being myself (maybe too comfortable).

I think I’m growing a new face tho, one who takes no shit and that will spend time alone before in the company of toxicity.

I think it’s fair to say that a professional face is necessary for work/business, and I have a real chill, pleasant face for every other occasion.

How many times can a person reinvent themselves and stay themselves? I’m in the process of finding that out.

I often wonder what it would be like to leave a mark in this world and not just go viral for a second. I want someone to quote me or refer to me one day because something I said had that much of a positive impact and was so inspirational.

I came across a draft of a blog post I wished I posted (but procrastination won again, unfortunately):

“If you’re into symbolizing than 2018 is a brand new year for you to sort of wipe the slate clean and start over. If you’re an overachiever you may have set a ton of goals or “resolutions” for yourself, me; I want to be happy this year. I want to be successful and continue to be myself.”

I think being yourself is becoming a trend (just look at Cardi B’s successes).

Women all through history from the past to the present have found success in being themselves so I know I can too.

“I want history to remember me… not as the first black woman to have made a bid for the presidency of the United States, but as a black woman who lived in the 20th century and who dared to be herself. I want to be remembered as a catalyst for change in America.” #ShirleyChisholm

Remember, nothing but good things are underway, despite everything suggesting that it won’t.

Dare to be yourself❣️
