Our lives, jobs, careers, social lives are filled with rules.

Do this, don’t do that, give up this, liberate yourself from that.
What if there is a new game to play?
The rule is, there are no rules.
Live your life, make your choices, be happy, stop listening to the external noises that want to shape you this or that way.
From how to write your blog, your resume, how to dress, how to respond to questions at interviews, how to present yourself.

How about just BE YOURSELF!
How about just BE KIND!
How about just LIVE AND LET LIVE!

Much simpler, takes the stress away and lets you dream, smile, be giddy once in a while.
Lift up your friends, empower the ones that are down. Don’t kick them.

We cannot all live in a box that has certain rules, dimensions, prohibitions, and levels.

Yes, be the best at what you do.
Yes, be respectful.
Yes, strive for perfection.

BUT
Within yourself, your character, your beliefs, your own being.

As Christmas approaches, all I read are articles with huge titles, like what are you ready to give up in order to….
Guess what world?
NOTHING
I am giving up nothing at all! I am who I am, I love who I am, I believe in who I am.
I am strong, caring, loving, and all I want for Christmas is Peace of mind.

Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to all!
