To Thine Own Self Be True

Award-winning artist, P!nk has just received her star in the Hollywood walk of fame.

During her acceptance speech, she quoted something her father had always told her: "To thine own self be true."

P!nk went on to say that there is such a power in being yourself, it's a power that no one else will ever have.  Although, she said, you may not be the prettiest, the most talented, the best, the [insert whatever word you tell yourself you're not here], if you're stubborn enough, work hard enough and don't give up, no one else will ever be you.

So for all the days when I'm in tears because I'm not good enough, because I've seen on Facebook that so-and-so looks far prettier than I do, because someone took a better photograph than I did or wrote something better than I did, because they have a better car, better house, more friends, more fun...  For all those days, and there are many, I'll replay P!nk's words and I'll remind myself that there is no one in the world who can do what I do the way I do it. 

Because I give you me in every word I write, everything I say and every picture I take.

Plus, I'm absolutely, unbelievably, ridiculously stubborn.
