Be True to Yourself

Be true to yourself. I think it is extremely important to always be true to God first and yourself second. I believe it is so important to firstly concentrate on your happiness meter. In fact ask yourself the question of, "how happy am I appearing today". Even if you're not feeling terribly happy, at least fake it until you make it. It is one of the most important things that you can do for your own personal happiness, is to behave as though you're already there. And all of a sudden people will respond to you differently. In fact, if you behave as though you're already there, then by golly you're halfway home by just believing in it. And believe so hard that you make it so. These are such simple words but if you learn to live by those words and truly make them yours I believe they will work.

I don't think all of this is simple to do, but it is so worthwhile that poets write about believing in oneself and actors employ the use of happy words. Walk as though you have a spring in your step and a glow about yourself. And suddenly people will begin to notice something a little bit different. They may not be able to name it or even say it, but all of the same people will notice a subtle change. Maybe it's a twinkle in your eye or a gregarious smile you are wearing. Show your glow and people will notice your joy and they'll feel your warmth. It's not that I'm so perfect, but I am certainly working towards that happiness goal because it works and everyone knows that it's more fun to hang out with people who are funny or light-spirited. Something to think about-try the idea of thinking about your favorite comedian and see if you can't employ the humor of someone like Seinfeld. Everyday things are funny and that's what Seinfeld capitalizes on; simple humor is often the way he draws people in. All in all, the essence of what I'm getting at is that just like Bobby McFerrin likes to whistle his tune, "DON'T WORRY, BE HAPPY", employ the same attitude because attitude really IS in fact everything. Wising you joy, love and lots of laughter, Tara.
