There are days that I feel it is hard to accept who you are. Do you ever feel this? It is hard to admire and love yourself when you know all the little flaws that make you imperfect. It is so easy to Love others and to see their good, but I am always the first to see the negative about myself. I think I have been on this thinking path lately because I have a new life that I am in charge of and going to be taking care of in 6 months. It gets you thinking about all the things you need to do better. So today as I was cleaning out the junk in the baby room, I ran across this paper that I got when I was in high school and it inspired me. I thought I would share it with you.


It is rewarding to find someone whom you like, but it is essential to like yourself. It is quickening to recognize that someone is a good and decent human being, but it is indispensable to view yourself as acceptable. It is a delight to discover people who are worthy of respect and admiration and love, but it is vital to believe yourself deserving of those things. For you cannot be given a life by someone else. Of all the people you will know in a lifetime, you are the only one you will never leave or loose. To the questions of your life, you are the only answer. To the problems of your life, you are the only solution.

That is such a good little message that we all as girls need to take into more consideration for sure. I find myself taring myself down more and more and realize that is not what I want my little boy to hear. We need to learn to be happy with what we got. Thanks for sharing.....
