Be the First You
This interview with new country music sensation Kacey Musgraves is worth eight minutes today. Musgraves has risen to prominence because she can write great lyrics (she's also a fantastic vocalist).
She's also not afraid to push the boundaries a bit or to challenge the stereotype of what country music can be. When asked about this in the interview she says that she'd rather be the first her than the next someone else.
In all of your striving to be just like someone else, you're missing out on the greatest opportunity of your life: the chance to fully be you.
The world needs you to be you. And to be the best one. So, go on. Be you. Please.
