“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” – Dr. Seuss
Did you just read that and think to yourself, “There is no such word as youer”? Well sometimes it is necessary to make up a word. Dr. Seuss who originated this quote made up some really wonderful characters, ‘The Cat in the Hat’; Horton of ‘Horton hears a Who’ fame and do not forget the Grinch! Sometimes wonderful characters require wonderful new words. Why can’t you be a wonderful character too?
I know it is OK to use fun words once in a while. It is smile worthy to know that you are reading this and cutting me some slack for using a word that does not exist.
How do I know you are cutting me some slack? Because YOU are allowing me to be me. You see that this quote is more light hearted than some of the quotes I share with you. I bet you can also read it and say, “Yup, that sounds like Margaret.” I hope the people you work with can hear you use an expression or watch you take an action and know that they are seeing the true you.
Thank you for allowing me to be me and I encourage you go out there and always be you. Being true to yourself is a gift you share with yourself and with others.
Dr. Seuss was right; there is no one alive who is youer than you!
