One thought. One thought is the most important. Be yourself and don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise and if they do, they don’t deserve you. Being yourself is the most important thing in my mind. You are unique, special, and there is only one person in the 7 billion in the world that can be you. That person is you. Whether you are an athlete, a musician, and artist, a computer person, a cook, or any other thing there is out there it’s who you are. No one on the world could possibly be you, so you have to!
Here’s an example from my life:
One day at my school, we had a spirit day which was named “-ER Day Thursday.” This day you could dress up as anything that ended in -er. You could be a hik-er, sing-er, danc-er, cucumb-er, explor-er, bak-er, or anything else your imagination can come up with. My idea was being a camp-er from Camp Half Blood (a camp of demigods from the Percy Jackson Series) and not just any one camper, but I was the character of Piper McLean. I went all out on my outfit. I went through the books and I copied her hair, clothes, makeup, and everything else. My friends did this with me and they picked specific characters to be as well.
We were total nerds!
All day people were asking what we were supposed to be. There are roughly 900+ people in my school and maybe three knew who we were being. Some people were also looking at us weird too, I mean i put giant feathers in my hair and we all wore matching shirts. But you know what? I didn’t care. I was being me. I was happy and my friends ad I were having an amazing time and laughing our butts off as we recreated scenes from the books together.
When you are doing thing you love and being yourself, then who cares what anyone thinks. I live by being myself. Especially now as I’m starting high school soon, I know that it’s the most important. If your not you then who are you?
