Be your unapologetically weird selves  

The most important piece of advice I can give you on the path to happiness, is not just be yourself, but be your weird self. It takes too much energy to be other than your weird self. We spend too much of our lives living up to the expectations of others.

We buy things we don’t really want, with money we don’t really have, to impress people we don’t really care about. Forget that. Forget what other people think. Everyone here is weird, admit it. We each have our quirks. Celebrate those. Be goofy. Tell corny jokes, dance awkwardly, express your half baked thoughts. But most importantly, laugh about your failures.

It’s our collection of screw ups and idiosyncrasies and memories and stories and lessons learned, that make us weird and interesting. Weirdness is why we adore our friends. Weirdness is what binds us to our colleagues. Weirdness is what sets us apart and gets us hired. Be your unapologetically weird selves.

Be happy. Sleep well. Be weird.
