Sometimes we need to remember that we ARE OK just the way God made us. I am as guilty as anyone else out there of being my own worst enemy (another favorite song!)
As I drove along today with my sunroof open, the warm air streaming in, the blue sky above me, and the sun shining down on my head, I realized that YES, I am OK. No, I know that I’m not perfect, but I am also beginning to realize that I need to have care, love, and respect for myself. Being OK has to start with ME.
Just as I was thinking all of those things about putting an end to my eternal battle and endless self-criticism, the song Perfect came on. “Change those voices in your head. Make them like you instead.” Easier said than done, huh?
One more thing that I want to share with you in this super-duper quick blog post is this Facebook page. It is chock full of fabulous daily reminders that this great, beautiful world is larger than the thoughts that reel over and over inside our own heads. I need to remember each and every day to look beyond the tip of my nose and find the good and beauty around me.
