A Sticky Note For Yourself

Sticky NoteWe put sticky notes all over things to give us little reminders of a thought or a next item on the to do list to take care of. But for today I want you to pin

          A Sticky Note To Yourself.

Write down Live as if you matter. Why? Because there is only one you and that YOU needs to rise to the surface and show itself. You're UNIQUE, just like everyone else, the joke goes. But with definining our identity no one needs to know what we are good at and like to do more importantly than us.

Often in life we are doing what we should be doing rather than what we want to be doing. In life you may have five distinct selves. You are trying to get it right. You may be single purposed or have multiple purposes. Do not live life as a blur, but a sharply defined light. People will remember you EXACTLY for who you present yourself to be.

JL: I like being myself too. Who else are we supposed to be? LOL. Yet many do not work at discovering themselves enough I have found.

Gary,

Everyone should follow this advice.  Everyone is unique in their own way.  Follow through on your strong points and live life.  Life is too short not to.

Hi Gary-I especially like this line. "People will remember you EXACTLY for who you present yourself to be".

You my friend will be remembered for being the loving caring person who inspires people everyday to love ourselves. You let us know we are all important to YOU,  just as you are important to all of us.  God bless YOU.

Good words, good reminder. I always find it funny when someone says "thats SO not you!", based on their perception of who I am.  Who says it's not me?  Certainly not me!  =o)

This is an amazing message (I use the word amazing a lot, don't I?).  I have a post it note on my desk that says "Attitude is everything".  I picked it up somewhere and I look at it all the time to engrave it on my brain. It is so true that life is too short to be a poser.  I am not very popular or have many friends but the few true friends I have would bend over and backwards for me and adore me just the way I am. I think that's pretty remarkable because I enjoy being myself!  Thank you, Gary for letting YOU show...we're all very blessed because of that.

Gary - And I would add to that - Live as if you won't have another day - to say the things that need to be said, to do the things that need to be done, and to be the person you want to be (and should be)!

Gary- I use sticky notes all the time, but I can't remember when I used one to remind me to do something just for myself. Maybe I will post one just for me and see if I will do it. LOL
