#309: Power Play – Be yourself

Heart and Ice Power Play - Be yourself

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you like everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight and never stop fighting. – E.E. Cummings

Being different puts you in a vulnerable position, but sometimes you just have to put yourself out there and be your authentic self.  This Canucks fan was ‘brave enough’ to sit amongst a flock of Team Sweden/Coyotes fans, yet he didn’t sit down and try to hide – he showed his pride for his team even though he was their lone supporter.  That might be easier to do for your favourite hockey team, but harder when it comes to other parts of your personality and the things that make you unique.  But when you’re brave enough to be different, it encourages others to do the same.  You will come across people who are very different than you, who have different likes and dislikes, different values, different opinions, but God made us different for a reason.  Don’t be afraid to show it.

Game Plan:  Be nobody but yourself.
