Only You

Today, I recall the First Lady’s quote, “I can only be Michelle Obama.”  She doesn’t try to be anybody else.  

The statement resonates. I can only be me. Why would I try to be somebody else?

The me I am is the me people love. 

When we’re trying to impress at holiday parties or when meeting up with old friends and family, just remember this:  The you you are is the you we love.  We don’t need impressive, thin, wealthy, salon-made, well-rested, designer-dressed, or even clever.

We love you:  the quirky, complex, out-of-sorts, moody, restless, down-to-earth, a little plump you.  (Oh wait, that’s me!)

We love that extraordinary you. 

Doesn’t it just feel free to say, “I can only be me”?
