Decide To Be You

I've finally decided that I want to be Me when I grow up.

When we ask a little kid, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" we are really telling them, "You have to become something else. Who you are isn't good enough."

I wish at least one adult had told me this when I was a child: "The whole universe is happy, and all the galaxies dance with joy, because You were born! For all eternity, there has never been another You, and there never will be. Yet for this brief moment, on this little planet, You are here!

"I hope that when you grow up, you will not try to be anyone else. Just be You: nobody else can do that!"
