They say we are what we eat, but I say we are what we do…what we put out there is how people will react to us, how they will relate to us and how they will judge us.

We don’t realize that there is always a witness to our actions, that more often than not there is someone who sees us even when we think no one is looking.

Does that mean we have to hide? By all accounts that is exactly what we should NOT be doing, we should go out there and dance in the rain, sing at the top of our lungs, even when off key, be silly and just have fun being you. We shouldn’t be afraid of ourselves, we are all unique and we all have that special quality few others have. We were not put here to judge one another but to embrace our uniqueness and our differences.

You are what you do, if you hide who you really are then you’re a coward, if you come out of hiding you’re brave. If you give of your time to someone in need without expecting anything in return; you are caring. Should you be the type of person who only watches out for themselves; you’re self-absorbed and selfish. Are you the hard working student who puts class ahead of the beach? Well then you’re ambitious and dedicated. If you allow others to carry your ‘weight’ through life then you’re spineless.

Every action we put out there will have a reaction in the form of how people will think of you. We seldom think of the consequences of what we are portraying to the world.
If you lie about whom you are or what you do, then you are forever stuck with being that person, lying to those around you and most importantly lying to yourself.

You are what you eat, you are what you put out there and you are what you do.
Go out and embrace life as the real you and just have fun.


  1. I agree. There is one thing that gets to me and that is superficial people who go with the flow despite it not being who they truly are.

    I try to be myself no matter who I meet and where I am. I have learnt that not everyone will like me but I can be the kind of person who has morals, is kind, caring and sincere. The rest will follow.

  2. I think a lot of people put on their acting hat every morning, trying to play into the role they think will make them great.

    I try to be one way, but my true colours come out and everyone knows I am nuts! I think I ease my personlaity into things, to give them a chance to adapt!

  3. True Tara, every action will have a reaction whether it be the reaction that you want. The older you get, i think the more you realise that life is about being you. People accept you for you or they dont. Rather spend time with those you enjoy your true self and those that allow you to embrace your zest for life.
