Becoming Yourself

Who are you really, when no one is watching?
What makes you think and act like you do?
When will you stop pretending and drop your disguises?
Where will you find your identity true?
Why not embrace the uniqueness of you?

    Excellent questions, Kim! I think parents always ask questions like these when their kids follow their peers and not their own hearts. A belated congrats on a wonderful win! Love and Blessings, Rhonda

    The US Dept. of Health and Human Services produced television commercials promoting the "be yourself" idea back in the seventies. It's good advice to anyone.
