The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.
-Joseph Campbell, submitted by Terry H., Oak Creek WI
Don’t lose track of who you are
just because it might be easier
to be somebody else.
-Mr. Schuester (GLEE), submitted by Justin B., Austin TX
If you try to be like someone else, you will end up getting fired because
the role of somebody else is already taken and we only need one of them.
If you try to be someone you are not, you will end up getting let go
because others will inevitably sense the incongruence, sniff out the fraud.
It is not always easy, simple, or convenient to “just” be you. It is,
however, the most precious gift you have to offer the world. Everyone you
encounter benefits whenever you bring your full, best self to school, to
work, to life.
So thank you in advance for each time you choose to be really, really,
