Today we celebrate you! 
 I don’t normally make it a habit to walk around talking about myself because that’s really not my style, but today that’s exactly what I’m going to do, mention something about myself that I love, only because it goes along with today’s focus. 

One thing that I value about myself is my ability to not really care what others think of me or of what I say or do, with the exception of my family of course because I try not to embarrass them and I also care if I hurt someone so I usually don’t go around hurting people and not caring, but I think you get my point that I don’t really care what people think of me or about me. I was given this life and I only get to live if once so I do what makes me happy (as long as it meets to two above guidelines).  I use to worry so much about what people thought of me and one day I just stopped caring, I don’t know how or what prompted it but I just let all my fears go and it was so freeing, so wonderful to just not care anymore. Many people were offended and thought I was rude or that I had an ego but it wasn’t that at all, it was me finally getting out from under years of perceptions that people had created about me and when they finally found out who I really was they couldn’t take the honesty. The truth is most people would much rather be told a lie than to face the truth because it can be ugly or it can hurt or it can really rock someone’s world and I had just hit the stage ready to rock everyone’s world!  

The point I’m making is that today I want you to find 3 things about yourself that you love and value, even if no one else cares about them. All that matters is what you think, remember this is your life so don’t live it how others want you to, live it how you want to. Maybe it’s your freckles or your ears; maybe it’s your big heart or your friendly personality. Maybe it’s how creative you are or how you have to be punctual everywhere you go. It doesn’t matter what it is, what matters is that you love this feature about yourself so celebrate it and try to bring it out more often, disregard what other might think because it’s your life and honestly no matter what you do there will always be one person who has something to say so go ahead and give them something to really talk about and enjoy every moment of it!


  1. Today and everyday! Amen :)

  2. Thank you for this reminder!.

    It is especially sad when someone gets so caught up to impress others, and they don't take care of their body enough.

    I have been doing this for sometime, but I worked out it is hardest when you just met someone. You want to impress them. You show all your "good bits" and hide the "bad bits". Maybe even changing yourself a little bit to be ideal.

    This is one thing that I struggle with. My friends know who I am, but most new people I meet only see the "good bits" of me.

    Happy blogging!
