You Are "You-Nique" Own It!
Being your authentic self in a skewed and scripted world is not an easy feat. Often, we find ourselves lost in the wreckage of low self-esteem and trying to fit into a predetermined mold. Sometimes we find ourselves in situations or environments where people try to mold us into what they want us to be or what serves them best. Unfortunately, in this type of environment, individualism is not encouraged. I agree that uniqueness must give way to teamwork at times for the betterment of the whole. However, that does not mean we should become muted or silenced. Instead, everyone should be seen and treated as a unique person, bringing value to the team.
Embrace Your Uniqueness
Living an authentic life means embracing my uniqueness, my quirks, my flaws, and my strengths. For example, I am outspoken, love watching Nollywood movies, impulsive at times, and strive for order and organization. I love Jesus, spending time with Jesus in prayer, reading, listening to God's Word, and other books. I thrive best in a peaceful and united environment. I am grateful for my family and community. I love being a nurse, and I enjoy talking to old folks. Fashion is my passion. Been fashion-forward, colors, and color blocking are some of my trademarks. I enjoy the beach and traveling. I love seafood and I enjoy experiencing other cultures through their food and crafts. I am passionate about my business Sarah Danielle Apparel and look forward to growing it and several others. Most importantly, you will never hear me say I'm bored because I love my own company. I truly enjoy my alone time, tranquility, and serenity.

Virtues To Own.
With that said, I want to add some virtues that complement and enhances our uniqueness. We all have undesirable habits, such as arrogance, rudeness, meanness, selfishness, and self-serving. Frequently, I hear people say; I will do me, regardless of what anyone thinks or feels. That could be wrong or right; if you mean, you will own your game and show up the best version of yourself daily, that's good. If you treat people poorly, manipulate and step on others to get where you need to, that's not right. If you are harsh, rude, and disrespectful to people, that's not cool either. None of us is perfect; we all have flaws, moments of weaknesses, and err at times. However, we should strive to be an altruist people and show up in the world with love, kindness, compassion, humility, forgiveness, grace, and mercy. We should commit to helping the poor, comfort the hurting, root for the "true" underdogs, visit the sick, encourage the brokenhearted. In others words, seek ways to be a good person, a good friend, and a good humanitarian and citizen of the world.
Commit to Grow
We should Commit ourselves to personal growth and development, learn from our mistakes, commit to not repeating them. Identifying the lessons in our mistakes and applying the principles to our lives; will lead to growth. We must endeavor to become better people; if we do, we will mature into remarkable human beings. Navigate life from a place of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. Don't allow others to use you as a pawn in their chess game. Don't allow others to manipulate you and mistreat you. Know your worth; if you don't, read the Bible. Jesus loves us enough to give His Life for us. What does that tell you about how he feels about us? That's more than enough love for me baby, everyone else's love is a bonus after this kind of love. Listen, look in the mirror daily, truthfully, and positively affirm yourself with the Word of God. Do not allow social media, others, or your environment to determine or dictate your value.
#Tip: Surround yourself with people who get you, lift you, speak life and truth into you, inspire and motivate you. Keep in your circle people who are not jealous, intimidated, or threatened by you; but love you enough to support you, have your back, check you, and call you out if you are wrong or out of line.
Commit To Grow Contd.

Finally, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take."
