have a measuring stick to see to all the good in me.
With the New Year in full swing all I keep hearing about is resolutions. "I'm going to the gym". "I'm going to lose weight". "I am going to stop being such a pushover". "I'm going to save more money". It is all about people resolving to change themselves. Don't get me wrong getting healthy and saving money is awesome. Standing up for your self is key in life. These are all attainable goals to better yourself.
However, you should BE yourself in the process.
If the next line of this blog was to say name 25 things you would change about yourself many of us would start flicking out fingers as we named the list. But if I said name 25 things you wouldn't change about yourself for anything, most would get stumped after 5. Even 5 would be hard for a lot of us. It would be a struggle to say it out loud let alone list 25 things we wouldn't change for anything. But ask us what we would change and we are off. Changing and growing are incredibly important in life. But so isn't being comfortable in your own skin as is. You are you and no one else in this world can take that away from you- as long as you don't let them.
That magical moment where you suddenly accept yourself as is...
Is right this very moment. Now.
Not when you, after you or when you can.
