Many people read this quote wrong at first glance, adding an extra I before be. It's not "who will I be" but "who will be me!" We each have a part to play in the dance of life. If I don't play my part, what will be missing? Each year as I grow older I make it my intention to be more of who I am so that I can be a greater contribution to you and the world.

Be yourself. Express your uniqueness. Know that who you are matters.
