Do you feel safe?

Do you feel safe to be yourself?

Or do you feel more safe to hide behind a mask?

Are you for real or are you playing pretend?

Do you feel safe having your own ideas, having your own original creativity, and putting your own personal 'mark' on things?

Or do you imitate others because it's 'safe', because it's already been done? Because you are afraid of what others might think?

Do you hide behind what's comfortable because you don't want to make mistakes or look foolish? Are you afraid of failure?

I know I have talked about this SO MANY times on this blog about the importance of being yourself, but I think it's good to have a fresh reminder to be who God has created you to be. There is no one else like you. There is no other you. Isn't that awesome?

I want you to know that it's OK to be you! And I want you to know that God loves you for YOU! And you can love you for you--you can LIKE yourself! Stop comparing yourself to someone else!

Be you!
