I do my best thinking here... or 10 minutes after I go to bed, or in the shower... oooor in my car.
But I digress..
Sitting in this chair gave me so much clarity today. As women, we spend too much time trying to "fix" others opinions of us. We put too much thought into figuring out WHY someone doesn't like us. We lose too many moments comparing our reflection to others. Why? Seriously, why?
Because I don't have a solid answer.
Who told us we weren't good enough and, more importantly, who the hell made THEM on expert on our lives?
People will dislike you simply because you are you. People will talk about you because they have nothing better to do. People will try to tear you down to make themselves feel better. You can't stop that: that's not your responsibility.
Your responsibility is being the kind of woman who can meet her reflection straight in the mirror and give it a wink. That inner power is more precious than gold and we must fight like hell to cultivate and protect it.
What others think of you is none of your business. Because that's THEIR perception and not YOUR reality. Ya feel me?
