10 Ways You Can Express Yourself

10 Ways You Can Express Yourself

Be proud of who you are


To express yourself means to let the world know who you are. It is a way to identify and stand out in a world of similar people everywhere you turn. There are several ways we can express who we are through our daily lives like art, writing, music, langauge and more.

1. Writing

Writing is an easy way to express your feelings, your opinions and even to just write stories that interest you.

2. Singing

No matter how good you are, singing can be fun. You can put your own touch on popular songs. No two people ever sing a song exactly the same, that's what makes your singing voice unique.

3. Painting or Drawing

Artwork is a great way to express what you like. You can create a picture however you want and put your own personal touches on the work.

4. Sports

Play a sport you enjoy. By playing soccer, baseball, tennis or any sport, you can have fun and let the world know who you are.

5. A journal

You can keep a daily journal and write down your feelings. You cannot express yourself until you first know yourself and learn who you are and how you feel.

6. Dancing

Dancing is a fun way to express you. There's so many different styles, so you can chose what you like and jump right in.

7. Join a club

Find a club with others who share your interests. The best way to express yourself is with others. You may find many people who think like or like the same things as you.

8. Decorate your room

Put things in your room that let others know that this is you. Your bedroom can be as unique as you. Put up pictures, decorations or quotes that you enjoy.

9. Your style

Wear clothes that make you feel like you. Create a you trend and find a style that you personally love to wear.

10. Play a musical instrument

Take up a new instrument. Playing music is a great way to express yourself. It helps you to shout to the world who you are. Like dance, there's many different styles and you can find the one you enjoy.

Expressing yourself is a great way to let the world know, "This is me and I am proud to be me!"

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).
