Don’t Take Yourself Too Seriously

I don’t know about you, but I make an effort to embarrass myself daily. Okay, not really…I just embarrass myself daily because I’m me. But, I’ve learned to laugh at myself and not care what anyone things because life is too short to waste time concerned about other people’s opinions. I don’t take myself too seriously.

Neither should you!

Sure, I want to be seen and valued just like everyone else, but I don’t have to walk around acting like I’m “above” in order to accomplish that. I am unapologetically me. That doesn’t mean there isn’t room for self-improvement, just that I embrace my flaws and work to better myself.

I feel like everyone has room to grow. Nobody is perfect. Everyone has their own doubts, insecurities, and questions.

There is nothing wrong with confidence! Be proud of who you are and what you’ve accomplished in life, but learn to take a step back and see life for what it is.

Dream a little. Believe a little more. And, at risk of sounding cliche: “Dance like no one is watching!”

I am me and if someone doesn’t like me, that’s fine. Not everyone will. It’s not going to stop me from being myself.

This thing we call life is funny anyway. Filled with moments of “who he even knows what’s going on!?” Faith brings us through these times of uncertainty. I may not have all the answers, but I can look to the God who does.

Take life seriously, but don’t take yourself too seriously.

It’s too stressful to measure up to the standards we create for ourselves.

Everyone is trying to live their life the best they know how.

So learn.


Embrace uncertainty.

Don’t be afraid to embarrass yourself.

Just be you. It’s more than enough.

You as you, not who you pretend to be, are more than enough.

Remember that.
