"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment." -R.W.E.
Sometimes I find myself comparing myself to others and in those occasions I try very hard to internalize this quote. My hubby has always told me that happiness comes within yourself and comparing yourself to others doesn't help anyone's personal growth. I believe this to be true well at least when it comes to me. Today for some reason I woke up with a different attitude about life and I feel great. Please don't get me wrong I've always been a very upbeat and bubbly person but today was different.
Before today for some reason or another I was an individual who didn't think I deserved all the good things that were happening in my life but things have changed. I have realized that I am worth everything that I have and much more. I have gone through life feeling like a victim and making different excuses about not accomplishing different tasks that seem easy to others. I have faced many adversaries but if it wasn't for those things I wouldn't be the individual that I am today. I'm certainly not the type of person that goes around totting my own horn so please don't mistake all that I'm telling you for cockiness. I'm just really excited about what I have realized. I'm finally able to except myself with all my faults and I'm happy at the type of individual that I have become.
My hubby has always accepted me and all my quirks but now I have realized that I love the person that I am. I won't let other's dictate who I am and who I strive each day to be.
Along with what I had previously said about becoming healthier I now want to extend it to other aspects of my life. I'm going to stop making excuses for the direction my life has taken, for the things that I haven't accomplished and those that didn't quite turn out the way I expected. Like the cliche goes you live and learn, right? I began my transformation by deleting my facebook and twitter accounts which has liberated me. I'm not saying that everyone should go out and do the same but for right now I believe that I have made the right choice.
Now that I'm finished rambling on about what has changed I shall return to my never ending school work and to living my life. I'll see you guys at the finish line in a couple of weeks.
