     I will never forget the words of my childhood spiritual mentor upon my entering into a committed relationship  with my boyfriend.  She said, "always  remember who you are!"
    When I graduated from a Catholic College, Sr. Josephine's (my college advisor) final instruction was to "be who you are."
    Mother would, too, offer that I do all things in the way only I know how to do them.
    Since each of us is an "original" we out be more true to ourselves.  Uniquely, God "packed" us to "do life" in the only way WE can.  There are so many "ways" to accomplish the same task.  No ONE way is THE absolute correct way, we need to give "our bend" to life. . . Be ourselves.
    Since I am the "boss of my body", everyday I have the opportunity to decide to "be me"or "to be "like" someone else."  (Additionally, I don't think God meant for us to be anyone other than ourselves.)
