On staying true to yourself…

My Uncle Gary wrote one line in my high school graduation card – “Always stay true to yourself.” I think this is the best and one of the hardest things to do in life. This advice will always remain with me, and his handwriting is even embedded in my mind.

Another person in my life also once said to me that the Journey song “Be Good to Yourself” reminded him of me. I think that was his way of also saying that I should always stay true to myself. I guess I was doing a good job of that when he told me, but I sometimes struggle with this. (Doesn’t everyone?) It just seems that sometimes the feelings of others get in the way, or it’s necessary to play politics, or any other circumstance that doesn’t allow for me to just say/think/do what I feel is right.

“Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own voice. Most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”  – Steve Jobs
