If only you could sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person. ~ Fred Rogers
I’ve been MIA recently, sorta, kinda, unintentionally took a hiatus.🙊 Being offline has given me such a sense of peace. So here I am soul happy, heart full and my mind at total ease…
If I had to describe myself, I would say: Tenacious, hardworking, resourceful. Maybe a little bit stubborn. Definitely someone who is driven, even to the point of establishing a perfectionism complex, therefore enabling acts of being too hard on myself, but maintains high standards for themselves. Well, I’m not a genius but I do know that I’m a good-hearted person. How do I succeed? I Pray it, Believe it, AND Receive it. Nothing else.😊
I’m aware of my perfectionist tendencies. Yes, I’m not Perfect BUT I choose to be PRESENT, rather than perfect. Anyone else feels this way!? As I have learned,so it goes. I define my own beauty – that’s not a power anyone can have over me. We all need to be internally happy with who we are, and what we do in life. But it’s also important to have friends and family in our lives so that they can build us up when we are down. To feel loved and inspired by others and to have someone that truly has your back, is PRICELESS and NECESSARY. Especially for those days when you are feeling a little blah.😕
Please, be proud of the pieces that make you. Embrace the oddities and hold on to them with everything you have. Be proud of yourself, because if you are, it never matters who else is. Because when we are, the inevitability of other people believing in you. And being proud of you, is such an amazing bonus to the strength you already possess.
I have been told to be gentle, kind and patient with others, AND nothing is wrong with that! But you can’t go around pleasing everyone. You can’t worry what everyone else thinks. Whether it’s your hair, how you dress, your make-up, what you have to say, what you believe and what you have. You can’t let the judgement of others stop you from being who you are. Because if you do, you are no longer you. You’re someone everyone else wants you to be.
Don’t you see? You are the only person who radically has the ability to change your life. You get to choose your own worth. It’s knowing you deserve to laugh. It’s doing what feels right no matter what. It’s doing what you want to do, no matter how stupid it may seem and look. It’s about being yourself ’cause no-one can tell you’re doing it wrong.’
To work on yourself is the best thing you can ever do. Accept that you are not perfect. Let go of the idea that you must always be who you have always been. There is no statute of limitations for you. And that’s the greatest thing in the world.
Learning to love yourself is not a simple journey but *oh my gosh* it’s a thrill.😊
Blessings and Love…
