Do you xerox yourself or are you an original?
Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else. ~Judy Garland
There are plenty of times that I have tried to make a xerox of myself because I felt someone dressed better, looked better, had a better house or car. It is easy in our day and time to get caught up in what someone has or does and to try and xerox ourselves to be like them. What is not easy is being yourself.
If God had wanted me otherwise, He would have created me otherwise. ~Johann Von Goethe
Trying to xerox yourself can lead to heartaches and disappointments. You can only be who you are and who God intends you to be. Stay tried and true to yourself, and make it a point not to xerox yourself to please others.
You were born an original. Don't die a copy. ~John Mason
