So after a day at the outlet mall, with some awesome people, I came home to watch the walking dead. After yet another phenomenal episode, I found myself channel surfing and trying to find something new to watch, and the Oscars were on. This was the point where Ellen took a selfie with the likes of Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Lawrence (marry me?), Merryl Streep, and a couple other various superstars. It made me think, man, does she live it up. Ellen lives the life of a rockstar. How fun would it be to be Ellen for a day?
Now I’m laying in bed pondering to myself, why? Why is Ellen so great? What unbelievable talents does she have, that I don’t? Take a second, think about that. Think about whatever star you really, really admire, and the differences between them and you. I bet you’re not so different (other than a ton of cash).
People love Ellen, because she is undeniably real. She is herself all the time, every day. And she loves that. It makes her amazing. But wait, what? Being yourself, makes you amazing? Yes, yes in fact it does. Being yourself absolute makes your unbelievable.
In a world full of people, who want to emulate others and be nothing but something there not, being real and being yourself is something that is highly valued in this world. Don’t believe me? Look at who everyone’s talking about. The Ellen’s, Jennifer Lawrence (again, marry me?), and even Miley Cyrus. These people are incredibly popular (disregard the reason for the popularity) because of who they are, and how they are. They’re themselves. So if you want to be different from everyone, and just be yourself, then do it. The world obviously loves people who are that way.
Whether you feel that love for being unbelievably unique individual is another story, and totally irrelevant. The only people whose opinions matter, are the who’s who you let matter. As Dr Seuss once said “those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind”.
Thanks for reading and until next time,
