Own You!

You've probably seen this quote before but allow me to reiterate and if you haven't well now you have;
                                  "Be yourself, 
                                                everyone else is taken" - Oscar Wilde
Something always prompts me to write and so here I am after todays' rush of inspiration. An older friend of mine came across my blog and her message to me was seriously touching. Words cannot express the inner joy I felt mostly because all that I write is either  how I see life through my own lens or my personal experience. Most of the time its the latter. To think that I can inspire another is nothing short of an accomplishment for me. My all time role model is Oprah Winfrey ! (or as Tyler will say Oprah freaking Winfrey) phenomenal woman and my lifes' goal is to one day inspire others as she has me.

So allow me to revert to my quote...It is okay to admire someone but note and know that you can never be that person cause well..you were meant to be you. For example, no one could pull off Janelle Monae ( And I use her cause heaven knows I envy her style! she's BAD) as much she can and thats only because she's her and I could go on to list many others. Now ain't no wrong in picking up a style, trait etc, however, the secret is to do it with a double dose of you..you feel me?! In whatever you do, make it yours! OWN IT. Let it fit your personality and say who you are... Cause no two people are the same and no two will ever be the same. You just never know who is watching and what could come out of just being you. Hate it or love it, someone will always be prettier, smarter, richer, skinnier, thicker etc but the one thing they'll never be is YOU.
