You are your own person. Making it through the labyrinth, unique and individual like fingerprints, where you’ll make your own unavoidable mistakes and grasp your own breed of wisdom. Feel that you are entitled to what makes you smile, cry, laugh or dance. Those may or may not be choices you make.

You’re a combination of secrets you’ve overheard, conversations you’ve engaged in or stayed stray from. The influences of tenth thousands of by-passers vs. the number you could easily portray on the palm of your hand of those who have carved a distinguishing mark on you. The string of events that made alterations to what makes you smile, cry, laugh or dance. It’s all your own in the ultimate beautiful way.

Stay away from the people who drag you into the emotional abyss of a permanent incompetence to fit into a framework. The right people in your life won’t make you wish you were like them; they will inspire you to be like you. To act and feel like you. To improve like you. To make new unavoidable mistakes like you. To prioritize, to choose, to change and to live like you and no other.

Maybe you’ve changed on the outside, for whatever reason. But that is just the facade - the transformation of your eyebrows’ stroke and shade of hair. Inside your rib cage, still beats the heart of the same young girl or boy. You may still have her/his round eyes, freckle and sense of humor.

You are here today, with the twists and turns in your code that mark who you are - and there’s too much love, drive and adventure within your life to wish you were living someone else’s. Embrace that.
