#MondayMotivation 3/26/18

I was finally able to see The Greatest Showman the other day and loved it.

I understand now why everyone was obsessed with the soundtrack and the movie. I love musicals and especially ones with a deeper message. The #1 message I received from this movie is to be completely unafraid to be you.

I feel that we get told a lot that it’s cool to be individual and be your own self. But I feel that people aren’t doing it to authentically themselves. Don’t be you to be cool. Be you because you are cool! It’s great to be you!

I know there are days where I don’t think that way. And I’m sure it’s the same for you but you won’t feel that way every day. And I feel that sometimes you need to hear it from an outside source that being you is amazing. You are amazing! So don’t be afraid to spread those glorious wings and share your beautiful self with the world.

Be unapologetically and fearlessly you!

My favorite line from the song This Is Me is: I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me

Because you are bruised but you are brave and who you are meant to be you. Don’t let anyone tell you differently.

And don’t give anyone the chance to steal you from yourself. There will always be someone jealous because you are unabashedly you! And that will make them hate you. Let them hate! Simply because they don’t know how to love themselves doesn’t mean you can’t love yourself or love them for their own faults. But you don’t ever have to sit there and take anyone trying to take you away from yourself.


“When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me
Look out ’cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me”

This Is Me – Keala Settle from The Greatest Showman


If you love musicals and haven’t seen The Greatest Showman yet, go see it! You won’t regret it, of course. Even if you only like musicals the tiniest bit I still suggest you see it. If that’s still a hard no, listen to the soundtrack and then tell me you don’t want to see the visuals that go with it.


I hope that you are having a fantastic day being you. If not, know that it does get better. You can’t have high days without low ones. If you didn’t then you wouldn’t know what a high day was to begin with.


Stay safe out there.
