It’s amazing to me how much we pour into reinventing ourselves.
What really amazes me is how much time and energy I’ve spent trying to reinvent myself — how much effort I put into making myself less unique. What I finally learned is I’m better off improving and harnessing the qualities I already possess than trying to trade them in for completely different ones.
Tomorrow is another birthday for me. One thing I’ve noticed the past few birthdays is that every year I’m a little happier I never succeeded in becoming anyone else.
Better late than never.
