Last week a coworker told me that she wishes she were more like me. It’s not the first time I’ve been told that and I’m always flattered that someone would want to be more like me or emulate me, but at the same time I don’t understand.

Whenever someone says that to me, I ask “Why?” And the answers are generally the same. “You don’t care what anybody else thinks or says.” True; but it’s taken me a long time to get to this point.

The first two verses of the song speak to me a lot. I am reminded of the rain and the heartache and the sun and the joy that came after them. The lessons I learned from them have made me into the person I am today and I am Happy Being Me.

“Happy Being Me” by Angie Stone

Baby, I’m thanking you

Looking back on when I started
Had a lot of sun and a lot of rain
I’ve had some joy and broken heartache
But now that doesn’t mean a thing

I’m living for the joy and laughter
Longing for my befores and afters
All in all, it’s been cool
And there’s nothing I wouldn’t do

I’m so happy being me
So happy being me, I’m regretting nothing ’bout me
Too busy living life, living love freely
So happy being me

Stop reaching back for your beginnings
All those broken dreams that went down stream
As we grow, live and know
Somethings were never meant to be

Just like people, they come and go
Some will live forever and some will never know
That’s why God gives us memories
To lead us to our victories, I’m so happy loving me

So happy being me
I’m regretting nothing ’bout me
Too busy living life, living love freely
So happy being me

All though hidden treasures
Feel little a pleasure
We could never replace this love
We can’t no, we can’t no

The sunlight leads us to a place
And the moonlight keeps us in his grace
I’m so happy, happy being me

So happy being me, I’m regretting nothing ’bout me
Too busy living life, living love freely
So happy being me

So happy being me, I’m regretting nothing ’bout me
Too busy living life, living love freely
So happy being me

So happy being me, I’m regretting nothing ’bout me
Too busy living life, living love freely
So happy being me
