Express Yourself

Dare to be an Original

It takes courage to grow up and be who you really are.
--E.E. Cummings

Embrace your uniqueness.
Time is much too short
to be living someone else's life.
--Kobi Yamada

Don't die with your music still in you.
--Wayne Dyer

We are what we pretend to be,
so we must be careful
what we pretend to be.
--Kurt Vonnegut

Be who you are and say what you feel,
because those who mind don't matter,
and those who matter don't mind.
--Dr. Seuss

Debi-Well how neat is that! At first I thougth I was just looking at a cluster of 2 or 3 tomatoes. And, just like a person, as it turned I saw all its diversity and unique qualities. And, though it may not conform to the world standard of beauty..it is beautiful in its own way. Thanks for the neat post! Diana

This is a beautiful post Debi!! It is much needed right now for me too... sometimes it is hard to let go and share your true self in fear that it might not be good enough... but really it is only to ourselves that we need to be good enough right?? love that tomato!!
