A First-Rate Version



“Always be

a first-rate version

of yourself,

instead of

a second-rate version

of somebody else.”


~ Judy Garland


We all must learn from others

but you do not have to ape them,

just take what you need and leave the rest.

It’s O.K. to borrow some dance steps

from the star performer but eventually what will

make  you the happiest is creating a move that others

will want to emulate.

Today, think like Einstein, behave like your favorite saint,

and do only what Superman and Superwoman can do,

but do it in your own uniquely awesome way.

Life is being a first-rate version of yourself.

Life is living and loving in the here and now.
