Mirror, mirror on the wall…

…who’s the best voice of them all?
Art is fascinating. It is so subjective. A voice one person might might swoon over makes another person want to put in earplugs. It is impossible to appease everyone and make everyone love you. It is impossible to sound like anyone else (without, of course, the use of an auto-tuner.) It’s also impossible to win them all. You are unique, and so is your voice, your body, your personality and your mind. Learn from the greats in your field, emulate things that work for you, but don’t try to be someone else. Try this little experiment. Go out to a public place, take a seat, and people-watch. Notice those who really stand out from the crowd. Notice those who catch your eye (be it good or bad.) What is it that draws your attention? Is it their unusual clothing? Their interesting stance? Their vivacious energy? Their inner calm? You might notice that the people who force you to stop and take notice are the people who are reveling in being themselves. They’re really living it up, being exactly who they are with no regrets or excuses. It’s better to be yourself perfectly than someone else imperfectly. So, look in that mirror, see yourself as you truly are and revel in it. Be the perfect version of yourself; you’ll find that you’re pretty good at it!
