I spent the better part of my life trying to be what I thought everyone else wanted me to be. Only leaving me frustrated and angry that I never measured up. It took years of hurting myself and abuse to finally wake up and see that I already had everything I needed. You see, it is hard when you are trying to be what you are not. The truth is that it is in that place of trying to be everything to everyone that we are usually the worst. Feelings of shame, blame and self-sabotage take over and you are no good to others or yourself.
I have found my best times where when I am FREE TO BE ME!!! I laugh louder and harder, smile more, love and appreciate everything and everyone around me. It is the greatest gift you can give yourself, FREE TO BE YOU!

Unfortunately for me it only took me thirty years to figure that out. Fortunately for you I may have saved you a few. I have spent the last 20 years loving me for who I am and who I am not and singing the song my grandma sang to me. “With all your faults, I love you still.” Learn to love you! I do!
