There is a certain kind of freedom in doing your own thing without worry of judgment from others. Last week I talked about being true to yourself. Take time to step back and look at what comes natural to you and motivates you. What inspires you to be better may not be what motivates others and that's okay.
There is a sense of peace when you do what you know in your heart you are supposed to do. One of the children's stories that I wrote contains a character who discovers this. Emma is different from her peers, but shines when she is in her element. I think people are a lot like Emma.
You can tell when someone is doing their "thing". There is a certain confidence and happiness that permeates from them. So do your thing, it's your life!
