Quote of the Week – Edwin Elliot

Quote of the Week by Edwin Elliot

Every week we choose a quote to focus on. This week our Edwin Elliot quote will be a reminder that being ourselves is how we be the best we can be.

“By being yourself, you put something wonderful in the world that was not here before.” ~ Edwin Elliot

Sometimes we lose ourselves. Sometimes we reinvent ourselves to be who we believe the world or another person(s) wants us to be. We fake it and in doing so, we rob the world of something amazing! Our unique, irreplaceable, true self with the gifts and talents and purpose we were specifically blessed with. Edwin Elliot’s quote reminds us that no one else can take our place and also that we are each and every one of us, wonderful.




I also found this fun little quiz from LifeHack.
