Define yourself

“There is a time in every man's education when he arrives at the conviction that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better, for worse, as his portion... The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried.”(Ralph Emerson, from his essay “Self Reliance”)

i dont particulary like Emerson or his works.... but i always did like the idea he expressed here. Dont be what anyone else wants you to be guys. Be yourself. You're unique, you're awesome... and only you can take that away.

power to ya,
