You may have noticed on my website that in one of the pictures of me, I’m wearing a t-shirt that says “DO YOU.” Someone even asked me about this on my Facebook fan page. We all use the transitive verb “do,” which Merriam Webster’s dictionary defines as “bring to pass; to carry out.” We do our work. We do what’s best for our families. We do what we need to do.
For me, “DO YOU” is really about truly being who you are. It’s about celebrating your individuality. Don’t mold yourself to fit into any of the pressures that society puts on you for your life. Part of what makes your life special and wonderful is following your own design. You don’t have to do what everyone else thinks is best. Just be you.
