Authentic Empowerment

Fitting in is overrated. I spent my first few years at my first job out of college doing everything I could to make myself more like the people around me. It didn’t bring out the best in me – and it didn’t position me to bring out the best in others. The best advice I have to offer is: Seek out people and environments that empower you to be nothing but yourself. – Melinda Gates

  1. I love this. I’ve never fit in a day in my life. I’m almost 50 and I don’t have 10 good good girlfriends. However, most are still from my childhood. I’m just plain ole me and guess what? That’s okay.
