INSIST ON YOURSELF, NEVER IMITATE

INSIST ON YOURSELF, NEVER IMITATE.
Your own gift you can present every moment with the cumulative force of a whole life’s cultivation, but of the adopted talent of another you have only an extemporaneous half possession…Do that which is assigned to YOU, and you cannot hope too much or dare too much.

--Ralph Waldo Emerson--

It's very risky business...to totally be one's self. But worth it.

Seems to me that you are daring and hoping to find your true self and that's the adventure!

Actually my thought today while being silent with myself was about individuality...And how important it is!! Being oneself...the good...the bad...and even the ugly!!
