My human, Mia, has been working so hard. She is so inspired by my plan. My plan is to go all over the United States meeting new and wonderful people, to share their stories, and to find the connection between all people. Mia is so wonderful, and I want to meet more wonderful humans like her.

quotes - Be yourself

Be Yourself... You are the only you that exists.

“Who we are never changes.  
Who we think we are does.”  ~ Mary Almanac 

“Feet on ground 
heart in hand 
facing forward
be yourself.”  ~ Jan Arden

"Going home means getting comfortable being who you are and who your soul really wants to be.  There is no strain with that.  The strain and tension come when we're not being who our soul wants to be and we're someplace where our soul doesn't feel at home." ~ Melody Beattie 

"To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly. ~ Henri Bergson 

"The easiest thing in the world to be is you.  The most difficult thing to be is what other people want you to be.  Don't let them put you in that position." ~ Leo Buscaglia 

"The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.”  ~ Joseph Campbell 

"Every human being is intended to have a character of his own; to be what no other is, and to do what no other can do."  ~ William Channing

"Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom.  Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power." ~ Tao Te Ching 

"Who you really are, your True Nature, is no more tied to the kind of person you've been than the wind is tied to the skies through which it moves.  Your past is just that, the past, a place within your psyche with no more reality to it than a picture of a castle on a postcard is made from stone.  You have a destination far beyond where you find yourself standing today." ~ Guy Finley 

"At the center of your being you have the answer.  You know who you are and you know what you want." ~ Lao-tzu

"Find your true path.  It's so easy to become someone we don't want to be, without even realizing it's happening.  We are created by the choices we make every day.  And if we take action in order to please some authority figure, we'll suddenly wake up down the road and say, 'This isn't me.  I never wanted to be this person.'" ~ Bernie Siegel, MD

  1. Be who you are nothing more nothing less
    And let the beauty that you love be the very best
    Sing praises to the highest with your feet on the ground
    And reach for your brother with the words that you sound and
    Don't let mistakes be so monumental, and
    Don't let your love be so confidential, and
    Don’t let your mind be so darn judgmental
    And please let your heart be more influential
    Be thankful for all the Spirit provides
    And be thankful for all that you see without eyes
    -Michael Franti
