Accept who you ARE, not the fantasy of whom you would like to be.
If only we could all accept who we are NOW, not how we would like to be, but who we are at THIS moment, and then accept others in just the same way, without tweaks, just the way they are right now, can you imagine how much happier we would all be?
I know I battle with this for me. I always want to be more and do more and feel like I fall short of what I should. I’m too quick to criticize myself– which often leads to paralysis when I feel that I don’t measure up to where I should. (The fact that I squeezed in the ‘m’ later, and skipped it up top, holds a touch of irony, wouldn’t you say??)
I’m going to try to be nicer to myself.
Wanna join me and be nicer to you, too?
