Y2 – Day 80 – Embrace Me

I like me and embrace me today with all my character and physical flaws.  I work on improving both and then let it go.

For too long, people walk through self-doubt and listen to people willing to support that self-doubt.

As a woman approaching her mid-fifties, I am finally realizing I can resurrect the true me without shame, guilt or a false sense of responsibility.

Be who you are and say what you feel

Because those who mind don’t matter

And those who matter don’t mind.

Dr. Seuss

Mean what you say, say what you mean and don’t say it meanly. Don’t use ‘honesty’  or the ‘truth’ to get your way, gouge someone’s heart out or to manipulate.  If growing up, you observed that other’s approval or happiness was more important than your own, then know – this well can never be filled by an outside source.  It’s an inside job.

Role models for rigorous, emotional honesty are not always exemplary or even existent.  Information is used as power and withheld to make you feel less than or not important.

I am inherently honest, I don’t have a devious bone in my body and I am not a cynic.  I crave truth and authenticity, in myself and others.  I trust me.  I embrace me.  It is my problem if I am not in acceptance of a person, place or situation.  I get to be who I am.  Go out there today and be who you are and just keep your side of the street clean.  Let’s rock!
