Hi and happy Thursday! Yesterday I had the opportunity to guest post over on Housewife Glamour for Heather and I couldn't help but want to share it today for Amanda's link up! It is a little different from my thinking out loud posts as of recent; shorter and no lists. Now I love putting together a long post, yet sometimes less words leave room more to think and that's my goal for today's post. The topic is something near and dear to me. It is something I feel is important to remind ourselves of often.
Being proud of who we are…including where we came from.
No one is perfect. Now, society tries to tell us otherwise, but I promise you that if you are trying to reach it you will be forever searching. The only thing we can hope to do is be the best us that we can be which includes learning and accepting where we came from and what has happened to us. Everything that we endure plays a role in developing us to be the person we are meant to be.
We all feel pain.
We all make mistakes.
We all encounter obstacles.
We all face disappointment.
In the end…we all are human.
These things will always be apart of our lives. There is no escaping them. However, we do hold the power to make them into something we celebrate. I am by no means trying to make this sound as if it is easy to do. It's not. It could take days, weeks, months, or even years and then just when you think that you have the hang of it, life will throw another curveball your way. The key is to not let it dictate us and our every move. If we can be prepared that this thing we call life is going to be filled with multiple hills and battles to overcome each new day ends up being more manageable.
Our struggles develop our strengths.
Adversity leads to opportunity.
& don't forget::
To be proud of who you are.
Questions of the Day:
1) What helps you overcome what life brings your way?
2) Is there one thing you find harder to accept over others?
3) How do you remind yourself to be happy with who you are?
