Appreciate Who You Are

I am uniquely me, I have feelings and emotions. I am somebody who thinks a lot, I tend to over think things. It can be a blessing and a curse. It can be my super power and it can be my kryptonite. But, I have accepted that that is me. That is who I am.

I am, however learning self control, where the balance is in analyzing a situation. Watching my thoughts as they come in. Choosing which ones I want to move me and which ones are not worth it.  It can be a struggle sometimes wrangling down those thoughts and feelings. But I know the freeing feeling in letting go. Even when letting go is hard to do.

Despite my challenges and my journey to balance and harmony. I appreciate who I am. Because in all that thinking it arms me with something to bring to the table. I am inherently a problem solver because of my need to analyze. I can appreciate that, as one of the strengths of a thinker. And most importantly I found my love for writing, when I needed to put all that thinking down somewhere.

You are uniquely you, you are, even if you think you’re not.  It’s ok to feel something, it’s ok to be authentically you. Bring your strengths and your weaknesses to the table, and find appreciation for who you are.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually who are we not to be? Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that others won’t feel insecure around you. It’s not just some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Quote by: Marianne Williamson

When we appreciate who we are we become powerful.

The most creative I feel is when I'm writing. About life, about navigating through life, and figuring out how to live the best life we have been given.
