8 Ways to Be Yourself. Everyone Else is Already Taken.

As Oscar Wilde so brilliantly put it, “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.”
Some of us embrace the idea of being ourselves – a freeing concept – while others ‘try’ to be themselves – not exactly knowing who they are and a bit reluctant to put it out there!
Here follow some kick-tush suggestions on how to be you!

Our Lady of Weight Loss’s Top Eight Tips on How to Be You … apparently, more difficult than one might imagine!

1. Take Stock: In order to be yourself, you do have to know, understand and accept yourself. The best way to do that is to take time to contemplate your life, your choices and your naval. (Back in the day, people would ask, “What are you doing?” to which you might respond, “Contemplating my naval.”)
2. Accept Your Mistakes: Know that there is no such thing as failure; only feedback. Take a good look at your choices. While feedback is a useful commodity, there’s no reason to repeat mistakes and failed attempts.
3. Let Go of Caring About What Other People Think: The fact of the matter is that it really doesn’t matter how people perceive you and worrying about what others think is a brick wall of your own making! It is virtually impossible to be the person that everyone likes.
4. Be Open and Honest: A bold move, but nonetheless, ask yourself, “What have I got to hide? Do I feel ashamed or insecure about any aspect of myself?” If yes, if you are loaded with ‘flaws,’ note what they are, come to terms with them and then transform them into quirks … in my case ‘kookiness!’ (In case you didn’t know, O, the Oprah magazine deemed me a ‘kooky genius.’ I succeeded in utilizing my flaws to the max!)
5. Laugh At Yourself: So what if you are a mess. We all are and are secretly terrified that we’re going to be undone by our misfortunes and flaws. Imagine how relieved everyone will be to know that you (and in turn, they) can turn their unfortunate stories into something funny. They will laugh with you! Oh my … laughter does feel good!
6. Develop Your Individuality: What’s your style? In form, fashion, thoughts, and manner of speaking? If you are a round and luscious goddess who wears red and thinks ‘interesting’ thoughts and speaks in a NuYawk accent, go for it! Stand tall, be proud, be your character.
7. Play in Traffic: If you don’t play in traffic, you can’t get hit by a truck. Ha! In other words, if you don’t get out there and risk getting crapped on by a pigeon, you’ll never be yourself. Be sure to carry those nifty clean wipes. Something splatters on you; clean yourself up and play some more.
8. You and You – Side by Side: Ultimately, you are hanging out with you all day long. So, be your best, most interesting and fun self. Hang tight with you!
Evolve. Don’t just improve.

    Great tips for learning to be ourselves and is a good reminder for me at this time. My son has just gone to college and I must re-explore myself.
    It can be difficult to cut through the strong messages of the media as they shout to us the things we should want.
