I now believe the more comfortable we are with ourselves. The happier we will be. It’s time to stop beating ourselves up for what we did or did not do, for what we have or do not have. What would happen if you decided to stop comparing yourself today, if you decided to give your own inner voice an actual place on the stage of your life, and allowed yourself to enjoy where you are on the way to where you are going?
“It’s still magic even if you know how it’s done.” Terry Pratchett
When I wrote this post before work this morning, I didn’t expect that we would lose the Queen of soul today – Aretha Franklin.
“Be your own artist, and always be confident in what you’re doing. If you’re not going to be confident, you might as well not be doing it.”
As Aretha once said, “sometimes what you’re looking for is already there.” Let’s look within, and embrace the grace you’ve been given. Shine bright baby girl.
