“Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.” ~ John Jakes

Being yourself isnt a choice. Its a way of life. Period.

Being you is not always the easiest thing to be. Believe me I have had a hard time in the past just being me until I found out who I was.

Being Beautifully YOU means to celebrate your individuality – learning to express yourself and be happy with who you are. For some it’s learning to love yourself, for others, it’s not hiding who you are or changing things about you to fit in. I fall in both those categories. And its amazing how everyday I learn something new about myself and strive to unleash it to the world…all because I am ready to do the inner work to be authentically ME.

I have become more ME in these past 5+ years of writing this blog than I could ever be.

I have become even more ME in the past 6 months as I have shed layers of my negative self.(the HOW coming up in the next post!)

I feel lighter ~ physically, emotionally and spiritually in tune with the Universe

Below I share with you 7 Simple Ways to Be Beautifully YOU! All tried and tested on yours truly 🙂

7 Simple Ways to Be Beautifully YOU

1} Redefine YOU:

“There are some things one can only achieve by a deliberate leap in the opposite direction.” ~Franz Kafka

Your primary goal should be to know, understand and accept yourself completely. Take out time to contemplate on your life’s choices. Try to think about what kind of things you would or wouldn’t like to do, and act accordingly. Finding out through trial and error helps more than you know. Work on accepting mistakes and choices you’ve made; they’re done and in the past, so there is no use crying over spilled milk.

2} Bye Bye perceptions:

“There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.” ~ Aldous Huxley

It’s literally impossible to be yourself when you’re constantly wondering “Do they like me? Do they think I’m fat? Do they think I’m smart?” To be yourself, you’ve got to let go of these concerns and just let your behavior flow. What you think and know of yourself is important not what others think of you. Don’t wear different masks to please different people….you will ultimately lose yourself. Be you, be authentic without being rude and self-indulgent.
