Today You Are You

Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.
I’m a big fan of Dr Seuss, and I know I am not alone. Do you ever find random Seussical phrases popping into your head? No? That’s just me?

The thing is, the library of Dr Seuss, the pen name of Theodor Seuss Geisel, is full of important life lessons for all ages. Even “grown-ups” can enjoy the quirky illustrations and catchy prose of his stories, which are as timeless today as when they were first published decades ago.

Today, with the word kindness in mind, I’ve pulled out these great words to remind us of two things.

  1. Be kind to yourself.
  2. Be true to yourself.

This certainly seemed appropriate when I was asked to join the impressive line-up of guest posters that make up the honour roll of Kind Kindred. I mean, quite frankly I felt like a bit of fraud. What could little old me possibly contribute?

When you living the life of a creative, or as a mum, an employee, or even as a brother of sister, it is easy to get disheartened ~ you’re not good enough, your “stuff” isn’t good enough, that person is much better at “it”.

But hey, you’re you. No one else is you. Unique starts with ‘U’.

So today, here’s a bit of me and what I do. A printable that I hope will you find useful and hopefully inspiring, using the words of one of my favourite authors.

Geisel wrote more than 60 books as Dr Seuss or Theo. LeSieg {which is Geisel spelled backwards!}, which have sold more than 222 million copies in 15 languages.

And to spread a little kindness, here’s a double download of the print above ~ one with a 2011 calendar to remind you each and every day how unique you are, and one without.
