As children we were told to be ourselves, but part of what it means to be a self is to be an entity that evolves and expands.
“You” are not your history and “I” am not condemned to be what I have always been.
If our potential is part of the self we must strive to be, then staying the same is the very opposite of “being yourself.”
Today I choose to elevate my game. Today I choose to actualize my highest possibilities. Today I choose to be the self whose best days are yet to come.
