📅 Thought for today:
‘Let go of who you think you’re supposed to be; embrace who you are.’
— Brené Brown

Brené Brown talks a lot of sense, in a no-nonsense way.
Where did we get the idea that we are “supposed” to be anything at all?
This is often part of the emotional baggage we pick up along our life journey.
Remember when someone said, “what are you going to be when you grow up?”
Like we should know, have a plan, be something.
When, in the 60s, I said I wanted to work on computers, my dad (who was a lovely man) said that there was no point, the world really only need a few computers.
So much of what we come to believe we are supposed to be is someone else’s dreams or baggage.
Put it down, be brave, be yourself.
