dVerse Poets~Slogan About Me

"Be Who You Are & Let It Shine"- Laura Rogers

Our dVerse Poets prompt is all about slogans and what they mean. Remember the NIKE slogan, "Just Do it"?

Think about what your personal slogan is and what it would say. I chose: "Be Who You Are & Let it Shine."
Let me explain why I wrote this slogan and what it Say's about me. At my age, I have learned a lot. Some from joyful moments and many things from painful experiences.

My philosophy is to be yourself. If people don't like you, well then it's there problem. The older I get, the more I come into myself and who I really am. I am not trying to please others like I did when I was younger. I feel blessed in my life. I am surrounded by only friends that support me and love me for who I am. I had to learn the hard way about who my true friends really were? It takes too much energy to be who others want you to be and it is not healthy.

The confidence I have in myself at this age, lets me even be snarky at times. I used to be so careful to say the right things, not offend anyone, be the perfect person. Those days are gone and it is not a bad thing. I think I grew up and realized that we can't please everyone, so you may as well just shine on others who you really are.

I am blessed and feel the important things in my life are my creator, my family and friends and of course my health. Life is great and I am so grateful for all that I have. So, I guess to be true to oneself is a way of life for me.

I hope you all feel blessed like I do, and let your light shine and be who you really are. God made each of us different for a reason.

  1. smiles... yes, it surely is important to be who we are and don't make it our goal to please people - my way was a bit different, i didn't care at all what people thought about me in my youth and had to walk a bit towards them...finding a new balance... smiles

  3. be who you are and shine is a great slogan...we spend far too much time trying to be someone else...and when we do we will never shine as bright as if we just accepted ourselves....smiles.

  4. Laura, I love my life and happy with who I am. I have no need of personal acquisitions, no need for the latest gadget or (branded) item of clothing.
    So glad that you are happy in yourself too.

    1. Hi Bjorn
      I don't like the "Just do it" either. Gives me the creeps. Thanks for coming by the stoop.

  6. Hey sis-I can attest to how you've grown into yourself. Life's ups and downs are good at making you think about how hard we work for approval. Life is too short to worry about what people think-Living an authentic life is the only way to go. Great post twin-head.
