How We Need To Remember To Be The Best Version Of Yourself

If you’re feeling down, if you’re feeling inadequate, your best version of yourself will help. When you’re more in tune with who you are, and less worried about who people think that you are, you can see life as it is, and enjoy every minute of it.

The other day, I was sitting on the porch in our back yard. I wasn’t feeling too great, physically or emotionally. It had been a long week, and I was feeling defeated. I walked away from the porch.  Suddenly, I was home for the night. I took some time to just be. I walked around in the moonlight, and I saw a man sitting on his porch. I walked into my garage, and found out that there was a man sitting on the porch with his head down, looking depressed. He was my dad. I asked him, “Do you need something?” He replied, “Yes. I need to talk.”  I walked up to him, and after letting him talk, I said, “Would you like to go to the store to get some coffee?” He said yes. I took him to the car, and he said nothing about going to the store. The entire conversation went like it started. There’s not much I can add to that other than to reiterate the fact that we have the power to change anything, and we all do.

It’s an amazing world, in the moment, in the now. It gives us all the opportunity to be what we are meant to be. Every time we stop taking for granted what life has provided, we start to appreciate what we have. We come to see that the things that we have are not what’s important, but are what’s most important. It gives us an amazing feeling of freedom to start living fully in what nature intended. As you can see, it’s quite easy to remember to be the best you can be. That’s it. Nothing else.

“If you only knew, even for a moment, how much you have, how many things you are capable of – you’d forget the way you’re always running from yourself, from what you don’t know.” ~Anonymous “Don’t try to live up to what others think you should be. Let God be your only standard, nothing else matters.” ~Unknown “The great gift you give yourself is what you give to others.” ~Anonymous “Let your real life shine. People think you should be this perfect and be happy. They never realize you already are. Don’t be afraid to be yourself.” ~Anonymous “Don’t go out to the world in your current state of mind. Live by a simple principle that everyone must start with, that no one is perfect and that you all come from the same source. Be a person who is joyful and thankful, and don’t take anything for granted.” ~Anonymous “There will be great things in the world. We don’t realize it. We don’t know it, and if we could know it, we wouldn’t forget it. If you go out there and look for them, you will find them, but you may not have known they would be there. You will have to realize they are there to you by looking and by trusting what you see. The moment you believe that it’s coming, then it’s coming.” ~Anonymous”It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
