YOU DO YOU (#YDY)

Don’t waste your time striving to become the person you long to be, spend your time being the person you already are. The person you long to be is already inside you.

You do You.

Say you long to be a writer. If you long to be a writer it means you already are one. You don’t need someone to come along and confirm it’s true, grant your wish or give you approval. It’s who you are. Already, right now.

You do You.

When we spend our time being who we already are, the doing ends up being a by-product of the being. So if you’re a singer, go be that regardless of the outcome. It’s who you are. You don’t need to do anything in order to be it someday. She’s in you. She wants to sing now.

You do You.

It’s none of your business how many people read your books or download your songs or compliment your latest design, or buy your art or like your facebook posts or retweet you. What is your business is showing up to what lights you up, to what makes you come alive, to that which makes your light shine even brighter. Let go of your attachment to the outcome. It’s  none of your business anyway.

You do You.

The most fantastic thing: when you’re simply focused on the being and do from there, the attachment to the outcome magically disappears and something very special happens… by allowing yourself to be filled up by the being, the universe can’t help but support you.

You do You.

So go be you, regardless of the outcome. Go do the things that you love regardless of how good people think you are. Without even bothering your head on what others say.

You do You.

You already are all the things you strive for. And the more you show up to who you already are the more filled up you become. The more filled up you become, the more You you become. The more You you become, the brighter you shine for all those around you.

You do You.

  • Ohm(!) my goodness! This resonates like a million times with me and my current “aargh”-state of mind-situation. I’ve recently started my blog (had been dreaming of it for more than a year!) but I have found myself wrapped up in self doubt about my posts and content. I’ve always known that I was going to write, I’ve always been a storyteller. But at this moment I’m blocked and constantly questioning if I really am that good and can be a inspiring writer/blogger. Thinking there most be something to learn. Yep. I have to learn to be me! Thx for this great post Rebecca. I loved it!

  • I’m so glad it resonated with you @disqus_0Li7DKXAeV:disqus 🙂 It’s a hard lesson to learn to be ourselves ha ha. Our ego likes to think that we need to work hard at it, but the hardest thing is often letting go and letting our most authentic natural wonderfulness shine through. It’s something I struggled with for a long time and caused me to hold back both my work and my light. Congrats on starting your blog!!!! May you continue to shine bright sista xxx
