Book of Me Quotes

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Treasure this day and Treasure yourself, truly, neither will ever happen again." -- Ray Bradbury

"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage." -- Lao Tzu

"Savor the moment. Search for a little joy, and you will find a great deal of it in unexpected places." --Unknown
When and where have you found joy in an unexpected place?

What does it mean to "be yourself" - for you? What does that look like? How is it different from others?
