#5. START BEING YOURSELF, GENUINELY & PROUDLY

Continuing on this list of 30 things to stop doing to yourself, and this list of 30 things to start doing for yourself.

We’re on to No.5, which is to:

No.5: START BEING YOURSELF, GENUINELY & PROUDLY

Trying to be anyone else is a waste of the person you are. Be yourself. Embrace that individual inside you that has ideas, strengths and beauty like no one else. Be the person you know yourself to be – the best version of you – on your terms. Above all, be true to YOU, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it.

Which also means:

No.5: STOP TRYING TO BE SOMEONE YOU’RE NOT 

One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else. Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you. Don’t change so people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love the real you.

PLAYLIST FOR RUNNING | TODDLA T

I love, love, love running to this song. It really gets you up and running (ha!), although sometimes I head-bop a little too much to it, which probably is effing up my body. Can’t help it, the song’s that good. The song reminds me of something, as though it brings me back to my younger days in that ol’ ’90s R&B/soul phase of mine. In any case, enjoy running to this!

HAPPY EARTH DAY!

I can never get bored of this fantabulous salute to Earth Day from a little pug via California! If a little pug can do it, so can I!

I ♥ Sherlock

I HEART SHERLOCK

I was never into Sherlock Holmes. I’m sorry. But I wasn’t. Even though when I was little, I had gone to see the play in London about him. I think I fell asleep. Although I do remember the part where he injects himself with…opium? I was baffled.

So, then fast-forward years later to the present, and my lovely friend, who never talks about TV, extolled the virtues of the latest adventures of Sherlock from BBC/PBS, starting Benedict Cumberbatch (brunch!). Season 1’s first episode got me hooked real good. The rest of the the season was alright, but never made me *fist pump* like the first.

Then Season 2’s first episode nearly knocked me over. So, so, good. Hot damn. I wish I was nearly as clever as him, or even Irene Adler. Even though I have a bit of crush on Lestrade (okay, okay, it’s mostly because he played Freddy Honeychurch in Merchant & Ivory’s A Room With a View–only one of my favorite movies ever).

Sorry, Benedict doesn’t do much for me, but he’s brilliant as Sherlock. Holy crap. He’s sooo good. Everyone is really good, except I really don’t like Moriarity — what’s with his accent? Is it American? Scottish? English dialects? What the? It’s irritating and not very good. Yes, he’s good at being insane, though.

Oh boy, now I wish I had a proper English accent now. *sigh*
