Who are you, today? I used to ask myself that question. A lot.

If one day I tried to be me and, if that version of me was not acceptable to someone, I made a modification. I took a piece of me and bent an edge. Another day I took a pair of scissors to a corner piece and fit it to the puzzle’s center.

Today, Jessie J sits in a room in her music video Who You Are and reminds us to remember our true selves. She reminds us to live our authentic selves. Her video is this week’s Tunes with Tuesday feature.

She tells us, “Just be true to who you are”.

I am stuck on the word “just” within that line. It has not been an easy journey for me to be “myself”, my authentic self. Some days have been struggles, and some days still are that way.

I wish you a day full of YOU, the true you. I wish you the comfort of living a moment, hour, or day being your true, authentic self.

This is christyb, sending a hug to you, the YOU who you truly are inside your skin.

      Oh Julie, I am glad you take away the message too of being authentic. I think you and I have struggled through some of the same issues. I love you and am so glad to know you and your kind, strong spirit xx

    Awesome choice for a Tuesday and always stay true to yourself. Your true friends will love you and the not-so-good friends will walk away and they didn’t need to be around in the first place. 🙂 I just love your blog!

    Terrific song Christy. I’ve struggled with this too. I learned to be a chameleon–being whatever the situation and the person needed me to be. I played so many roles. But very few felt close to me. Owning my writing, putting it out there has helped me to find me. And there are some exceptional people who like the real me and remind me that she’s the one I need to be as much of each day as I can. Thanks for a thought provoking and beautiful post. I’m so glad I’m getting to know you here and on FB!
