Be the best version of you possible. Don’t try to be what other people want you to be.

Don’t try to be what you see other people being.

Just be you.

Better yet — be a better version of you today than you were yesterday.

Learn from your mistakes. Try new things. Fail big. Keep trying.

It’s easy to fall into the mindless trap of listening to everyone else’s opinions.

Just be you.

Instead of thinking for yourself — instead of believing that you’re strong enough to achieve the big dreams you have for yourself — you make the mistake of doing what you think other people want you to do.

You become what everyone else wants you to become. And you never create anything beautiful. You never become something beautiful.

Just be you.

You have problems when you’re not being you.

But when you are the best you possible — that’s when everything you touch becomes be(you)tiful.

You did that. Because you were you. Not what everyone else told you you should be.

Be you. Be the best you possible. Be(you)tiful.
