Hello all! Ashli here today. I wanted to write a little post about something I find to be inspiring. As some of you may have noticed in our logo we have the phrase “Define Yourself.” In a way, it’s our motto, and I wanted to take the time today to let you know what that means to us. Obviously everyone is subject to their own interpretation, but I felt compelled to write a post about it so here I am!
To me, defining yourself is the same, and just as important, as knowing who you are as a person. The nice thing about it, though, is that you can decide to change your definition of yourself everyday, if you so choose to. Personally, my mood and overall feel of the day inspires how I choose to define who I am and decide to represent myself for that day. It’s important to know that you don’t have to be the same every day, and you don’t have to succumb to the pressures of being what everyone else wants you to be.
Individualism is essential to knowing how you’re choosing to define who you are. Don’t ever let anyone influence or decide for you because really, how is that defining yourself at all? You must let go of the fear that who you want to be is too out there, or weird, or even too plain and boring. You are your own and you have the power to be above what anyone else may try to influence upon you. Be you and don’t care what anyone else may try to say or do to bring you down, because in the grand scheme of things they really don’t matter. Define yourself in whatever way makes you happy and feels right to YOU.
Now, I would like to ask you…what does “Define Yourself” mean to you?
