lucky enough

if you're lucky enough to be different, don't ever change. -taylor swift.

To say that I love the quote above would be quite the understatement.

I've always been different. Just have. To start, I'm homeschooled. And for crying out loud, if that doesn't make me different, then I don't know what does. :) I have some different values than most of the world. There is a smattering of freckles all across my face. {But I've never complained about them. Just saying.} I've never been afraid to work hard for what I want to do.... and I started early. I think being an artist just separates you a bit too.

But I've never been afraid to be unique, to be different. I've embraced it. Why try to be anyone else, really?

"be yourself. 
everyone else is already taken."

Yeah, I pretty much love this one too. God made me, me. Not anyone else. And it won't look or feel natural when I try to mold me into someone else.

So. Please, please don't ever try to be someone you're not. Please be the you that God so carefully put together. The rest of the world needs the real you. Because really, if we miss out on you, there will never be another one. Don't waste who you are.

Happy Monday!

"to be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment."

    I couldn't help but read that to Sidney. She enjoyed it, but I know not as much as I enjoyed reading it to her. I'm glad she could hear that from someone else other than her mom!

  2. that's so cool! thank you! :)

  3. I love this! And the Taylor Swift quote, and the picture. You just made my Monday happy :)

  4. Beautiful post, I really enjoyed this. Especially the part about God making you who you are, and trying not to be someone else. I struggled with that once. Thank you so much. This was really amazing :))
