365 Days of Courage #39: "To thine own self be true" aka advice from Pink's Dad

I absolutely LOVED Pink's speech as her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was unveiled yesterday.

"Today for me is a celebration of something that my dad taught me and that is, "To thine own self be true".

And if you walk along this boulevard and you look at these names, there is a power that lies in that. To thine own self be true. There is a power in believing in yourself, there's a power in not giving up on life and not giving up on yourself. And there's a power in making a decision that while you may not be the best that ever did it, you may not be the prettiest, or the tallest, or the funniest, or the most talented, or whatever it is you tell yourself that you're not.

If you're stubborn and you don't give up and you work really hard, no one else can ever be you."

So much wisdom and truth in her words.

"No one else can ever be you."

Amen to that.
