I will be me

This stems from my reminders to myself lately during this awkward, (mostly) inexplicable (hopefully) brief time in my life:

I will not carry the burden of your happiness.
I am not responsible.
I will not be able to please everyone.
I will not stop trying though.
I will not be liked by all those I meet.
I will still smile and not let it bring me down.
I will make mistakes and that's okay.
I'm a learning sponge.
I will not assume how you are feeling or what you are thinking.
I will ask more questions.
I will believe in myself and in my decisions.
I will not be driven by guilt or doubt.

I will stay positive.
I will look up.
I will be free.
I will be me.


I am reminded of a quote from over a decade ago... "no can ruin my day, but me!"

That should be a mantra for me with some issues I'm am dealing with....why can't I come up with words of wisdom like that? Thank you for that lesson you gave me...

My sweet friend, be free and happy always.

Don't worry too much about what other people may think about you. If you are giving them your best, that's the best you can do!

Keep smiling!!

Much love and hugs

This carries so much wisdom. I want to print it out and staple it to the heads of a few people I know. People sometimes forget they have to take care of themselves, make themselves happy only then can they share life with others.
