Just Be Yourself
Sometimes People Disappoint You

What's the point? Who do you think you are anyway?

Why even bother? Who do you think you are? It's going to take forever anyway. And you aren't any good.  You don't have a degree in it. Your sister's friend's brother's aunt does it so much better than you do.

There are kids graduating college right now with so much more knowledge and skill than you have. You are so old that by the time you finish, they will be making so much cooler stuff, writing much cooler stories, designing way better things.

Why bother?

You don't have time anyway. There are kids to take care of. Papers to write for class. Houses to keep clean. Facebook statuses to keep track of. Websites to browse. TV shows to watch.

And even if you started and found the time, it's probably going to suck anyway.


Are these some of the lies you tell yourself?

Well, I'm here to tell you to 

Cut it out!

If you talked to your friends like that, you'd have no friends! So stop talking to yourself like that. None of that is true anyway.

There is no one on the planet like you nor will there ever be. Yes, you've heard it before, but it's true. You are a unique little snowflake. Just like everyone else.

Anything you love is something you are good at. How do I know? When you talk about it, your eyes light up. Your friends notice. 

And doing what you love is good for you. It makes you feel good. Even taking baby steps towards your goals will act like a ripple effect in your life.

The best gift you can give to someone else is your own happiness.

Whatever you have to give, someone needs it to heal, to move on, to be inspired.

You can heal the world with laughter, stories, new cool phone apps, drawings, beer, you name it. Whatever you want to give, need to express, yearn to birth into the world.... your audience awaits.

What are you afraid of?

We are here. Waiting for you. Take the tinest step. Please. Just do it for us.
