Be bright, be  bold, be you!

 Be yourself; everyone else os already taken.

Oscar Wilde 

I think its a good feeling to be happy with who you are and not wanting to be like someone else.  Accepting yourself is important to having a positive identity.  I’m happy that I’m the age I am an don’t try to look younger.  I’m also happy with how much I weigh, I’m not slim and trim and never have been.  I was never skinny. I don’t have to look like the models on TV and magazines to be happy.

We are all different , no two alike, and we should appreciate our diversity in the world We all have unique talents and gifts that can help to make this world a better place.  If we weren’t unique, we might all be generic clones with no unique traits.  

There is always going to be someone that has more money than you or is better looking than you and sometimes we struggle with comparing ourself with others.Tell yourself that is ok to be different.  You may have something to offer the world that they don’t. 

Remember that who you are today what you choose to do today, defines who you are and that is whats important. We can alll make a difference in the world. Each in our own way.

Appreciate yourself and what you do.  knowing who you are.  
 Tell yourself it’s okay to be different.

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The secret of being happy is accepting where you are in life and making the most out of every day.

How many years I wasted, trying to be somebody I'm not. Remember Twiggy the British super model? I was always 'average' body type, but gosh I wished so hard I would look like that. Good grief. Thankfully, now I'm content to be who I am, just as I am. Just as long as I'm healthy, little else matters. Happy Saturday!

I think that is hard - don't you? I wish I could accept myself better than I do!

The older I get the more acceptant I am with myself. Wish I learned that earlier in life.

The Emerson quote is right on the money.

Much of our lives will be spent trying to please others, or be someone we re not UNLESS we are careful. But I am also with Betty age helps us be ourselves.
