To Be Yourself ... A little southern inspiration.

I was enjoying some quiet time before dinner tonight flipping through my new Southern Living. I always love reading the Editors Welcome. He has witty jokes and fun stories - opening up his home and his life to his readers. Makes you feel like you really know him. So today when he shared a few words of wisdom, of course I listened. 

"To be yourself in a world that is consistently trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

So powerful. I have to say, this would be a quote to live by each and every day. I feel like I am constantly trying to influence others to just be who they are and say what they think. Not just jump on the bandwagon of the next best thing. I think that's what I love blogging and reading others blogs. Each and every one of them is unique... a life, a family, different stories, relationships, favorites and funnies. Each their own story, shaped by a unique experience. 

I just wanted to say kudos to all those bloggers out there doing their thing. Cheers ladies {and gents}!
