The Phrase That Pays

EB* – Wanting to be someone else is a waste of who you are. – Kurt Cobain

JD – Love will draw an elephant through a key-hole. Samuel Richardson

MS – And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. Revelation 21:5

JW* – Remember to always be yourself. Unless you suck. – Joss Whedon

The Kurt Cobain and Joss Whedon quote illustrate an important step in maturity.

Somehow we must be who we are while striving to become the best version of ourselves.

Some people use the “I’m just being myself” mantra to excuse the fact that they are a jerk.

Knowing the difference between embracing your love of art and your propensity to be selfish is something we all must learn at some point.

Lean into all the goodness you have been endowed with. Work hard to eliminate the less desirable habits and traits.

Make it a great day.

Jake
