Just be you

It sounds cliche but these last few weeks I’ve learned the wisdom in “just being me”. When I originally began my journey (or shall we call it an experiment?) on Twitter, I didn’t want to be perceived as one more person jumping on the “social media expertise” bandwagon. I purposely downplayed the business side of my skillsets and described myself on twitter like so: “Christ-follower. I love biking, blogging and baking.” The three B’s are supposed to be kind of funny because they all start with B. Yes, I know my sense of humor is weird.

Lately, I’ve received several inquiries from some rather influential and successful people via twitter. I asked one of these people “what attracted you to click through to learn more about me from twitter to my blog”. His answer totally shocked me. He said: “I was interested in learning more about you because you love to bake.”

My takeaway this week is to revel in your uniqueness. Just be who you are. And to repeat a phrase I heard eons ago, but it still works today “God didn’t make no junk”. Word.
