Be who you really are

“It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you
really are.”

~ EE Cummings

We are very much a part of nature as we live in nature. We come from a seed and grow from daily nurturing and nutrients, just like a flower that sprouts from the earth as a germinating seed. As we grow – just like a lovely flower – we bring beauty to the world in so many ways. Collectively, our body, mind and soul are beings that have the capability to do great things to as many people as we desire if only we can bloom into something beautiful like a spring flower. Each day as you live your life, make it your purpose to add something beautiful to the world. All it takes is enough courage to be who you want to be when you’re all grown up. Life is a gift.

  1. I love that concept of adding something beautiful every day.

  2. An especially worthy post

    This thought would be helpful to anyone who came across it, I think.

    If they create or influence children it is vital, but it is appropriate when looking at our general presence within the entirety of both social and natural worlds.

    You have certainly added something beautiful by posting it, for which I am grateful – especially since you were not seeking it – another beauty in itself.

  3. Thanks for the nice comment Ben. It’s always good to hear from you. Hope to hear from you again soon.

Go ahead...Write something. Your opinions are welcome.
