"If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.”
― Masaru Emoto, The Secret Life of Water

How to Observe Being You Day
Do something today you always wanted to do.
Share a post or video about something unique about you.
Post 3 things about you and that you're grateful for.
International Being You Day was created to help people embrace their "own uniqueness, as well as stop comparing themselves to others and rely on other people’s judgment, inspires them to be who they want to be instead of who they are expected to be, and empowers them to choose chasing their dreams over simply fitting in." It's for the dreamers, the perfectionists and for those of us who feel the need to be more accepting of themselves.
In short, Being You Day is about self love:
- "Self-love means that you accept yourself fully, treat yourself with kindness and respect, and nurture your growth and wellbeing."
- "Self-love encompasses not only how you treat yourself but also your thoughts and feelings about yourself."
- Prioritizing your health and wellbeing.
- Recognizing your strengths.
- Accepting your imperfections.
- Letting go of negative feelings that hold you back.
"If only you could sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how
important you can be to people you may never even dream of. There is something of
yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person." — Fred Rodgers
