Where you gonna go when you go where you wanna go,
Who you gonna be when you get to be you?
People are often dissatisfied with their current reality, and take steps to better their lives, their bodies, etc. I did, and almost every page I follow on Facebook represents someone that has done, or is doing, the same thing.
So much of a quest to lose weight, maintain weight loss, get healthy, train for a half marathon, etc, is the journey towards being the best version of yourself. These lyrics make me think about who that "best version" actually is...or eventually will be. What does that person do, think, wear, say? But then I also get frustrated with these words because I AM me. I'm me in whatever form exists today, this minute.
Oscar Wilde is quoted with saying “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” I love this quote. I spent a good part of my school years trying to be like someone else or dress like someone else. Such a waste of time. Here's anther great quote:
Get to know yourself and enjoy being you, whoever you are.
