Theodore Roosevelt said that comparison is the thief of joy and I couldn’t agree more. Be your own kind of beautiful rather than comparing yourselfYou have such unique gifts to offer the world, stop thinking that others are somehow better than you. Those precious blessings can also allow you to create a life you love but you must nourish them and allow them to flourish.

The first step is recognizing and acknowledging the beauty that is within you.

Sometimes we are so busy focusing on what we think that is wrong with us that we don’t see all that is beautiful. We can have harsh thoughts that point out perceived flaws and totally identify and believe those thoughts. That is a choice though- to believe what the ego mind tells you.

You can choose not to believe that negative dialog and with time you can even change it to a more loving one.

We so often want to fit in and feel like we belong that we are ready to ignore certain parts of ourselves that make us uniqueWhen we deny who we really are to please others and receive their love, we stand on very shaky ground.

We first need to accept and love who we are to create a solid foundation.

Then, we must make sure that the people we surround ourselves with allow us to be our true selves. Only then can we rise to our full potential and inspire others to do the same. Wishing you a wonderful day where you are your own kind of beautiful.
