Who You Are Today



Who you are today….that’s who you are.

Be brave.

Be amazing.

Be worthy.

And every single time you get the chance, stand up in front of people.

let them see you. Speak. Be heard.

Go ahead and have the dry mouth.

Let  your heart beat so, so fast.

Watch everything in slow motion.

So what. You what?

You pass out, you die, you poop?


(And this is really the only lesson you’ll ever need to know.)

You take it in.

You breathe this rare air.

You feel alive.

You are yourself.

You are truly finally always yourself.

-Dartmouth Commencement Speech, Shonda Rimes, 2014
