DARE TO BE YOURSELF!

By Katelin J. Wright, President of Be Non Human

Playa Vista, CA. – You deserve to live a life you are excited about. Don’t let the opinions of others make you forget that. You are not in this world to live up to the expectations of others, nor should you feel that others are here to live up to yours. In fact, the more you approve of your own decisions in life, the less approval you need from everyone else. You have to dare to be yourself, and follow you own intuition – no matter how frightening or strange that may feel or prove to be. Don’t compare yourself to others. Don’t get discouraged by their progress or success. Follow your own path and stay true to your own purpose.

“You have to dare to be yourself, and follow you own intuition – no matter how frightening or strange that may feel or prove to be.”  – Katelin J. Wright

Risk more than is required. Learn more than is normal. Be bold. Be strong. Show courage. Breathe. Excel. Love. Lead. Speak your heart. Live your values. Laugh. Cry. Be creative. Simplify. Adore mastery. Release mediocrity. Aim high. Stay humble. Be kinder than expected. Deliver more than is needed. Exude passion. Shatter your limits. Transcend your fears. Inspire others. Dream big. Act now. Don’t stop. Create your legacy.

TRUE BEAUTY

By Katelin J. Wright, President of Be Non Human

Playa Vista, CA. – 99% of women HATE their bodies. We’re too fat, too thin, too dark, under-eye circles, wrinkles, fat ankles, funky toes, weird nose, bad teeth, ect., ect., ect…

We live in a society that has created an extremely deceitful illusion of what “PERFECTION/TRUE BEAUTY” is. According to society, in order to “be someone” you have to be “Beautiful”. Meaning, unless you have long blonde hair, mesmerizing violet blue eyes, double D firm breasts, a 32’ waistline, 36’ hips, voluptuously pouty lips, a small upturned nose, & a flawless sun-kissed complexion you’re neither “perfect” nor “beautiful”. This extremely skewed illusion has created an inferno of self-hatred.

In my opinion, TRUE BEAUTY is defined by what lies in the depths of one’s heart. Moreover, beauty is the essence of YOU. You are an original, a one and only, a creation of God. There is absolutely no one else in the world like you. When you focus on being your truest & most authentic self, there is absolutely NO competition.
