So I'm Not Perfect

~~I may not be perfect, but I'm always me.~~  Unknown


Someone once asked me why I start my posts with quotes.  I love words and how they touch my heart!  That's all I'll say on that


Just wanted to say that I am getting the hang of having two jobs now!  It's still a work in progress but I enjoy them both and wouldn't have it any other way.  I'm finding time for me so that really helps as well.  Being an introvert, I value my alone time to rejuvenate and relax. 


But I also have this need to remind people that they are ok with who they are where they are.  Strange, huh?  It's alright, I agree.  But the thought of so many people being unhappy with themselves because they've been told they aren't good enough...aren't pretty enough....aren't smart enough....well, it hurts my heart.  And the thought of people smoking because they don't think they are 'enough' to quit???  Makes me tear up.


Anyone can quit smoking.  We all know that.  But in the secret of your heart you don't think that you can be successful because you "aren't"...aren't smart enough, strong enough, brave enough....please listen. 


You are just fine as you are.  You are just fine where you are in life as well.  Maybe you haven't reached all your goals.  Maybe you haven't even set any goals.  Doesn't matter!!  You can live a smoke free life no matter what. 


I know because I've been there.  And I'm now here telling you that things get so much better!!  Your quit gets better when you hold it.  You get better when you accept who you are.  And who you are is perfect.  I mean that.  No one else can do the things you can do with your grace, your skill, your unique spin on things.  No one else.  You are so needed just the way you are.


So get over those thoughts that you can't.  That you aren't 'enough'.  That it doesn't matter.  Of course you can, you are enough, and you matter to the universe!!  Why else would you be here??? 


So, see?  I have these needs and I act on them.  It's kinda who I am.  You may not understand.  You may not need my words.  You may not even 'get it'.  But I'm simply being me and that is enough for me to continue
