Not an original thought of mine, but don’t quite know who to give credit to. But, I like this.
Let’s examine this quote further.
My cousin used to always say, “You, do you!” I think it is the same concept of celebrating what is inherently you and your being and doing things that will reveal to other exactly what it is in you that is so good and pure or evil and bad. I guess it works both ways.
Do your life. How do you do your life? Does it mean to disregard the outside influences and just look within. Does it give us license to be selfish and only consider our own needs? In a state of doubt, depression, confusion, distrust, and hesitation, at that time, if no other time it should give you allowance to rely on the only person that you can control. Namely your self; you actions, your experiences, your memories, and your perceptions.
Do your life! Interesting.

A Comment on Realizing Your Dreams
I haven’t always been a cartoon freak, but I get my daily comics delivered to my email and there are so many profound, intellectual, life inspiring commentaries in the comics. So, that is why I have posted these as I find them.
This is so me! My life and my dreams are so far apart. But, the irony of the situation is, I know this without a doubt, but don’t know what my dream is. I just absolutely know it is not where I am and what I am doing right now.
So, how do you make your dream and your life closer together. Yeah, don’t need to run to the [insert addictive mind altering behavior]. HAHA.
How do I make the vast cavern between the two filled with happiness? And, can you find joy in the journey. Well, that is what I am going to try and do.
Find joy in the journey!
“If you think about being as healthy as you possible can, there is no way you’re not going to look like a million bucks.”
This quote is from either Beyonce or her trainer, it wasn’t quite clear in the article. Beyonce is one of my female image idols. I like her look and how it has changed over the years. I like that she is curvy and fit and takes fashion risks. I don’t necessary like her personality, I don’t know here, but I like what I see.
My other image idols:
Catherine Zeta Jones
The late and great Aaliyah
These women all seems to be criticized for their bodies, but they embrace their body and their body image. They all don’t look like traditional images of what is expected of them. They look good.
To all the great ladies and their great self images. We can all strive to be like them in that respect.
“Many people think they r unhappy because of what’s going on “around” them, but a lot of it is because of what is going on “inside” of them. Think about what you THINK about.”
