You could spend all of your days obsessing over what other people think of you and at some point or another we have all gone down this road. Everyone has an opinion but it doesn’t really matter because other people’s opinions shouldn’t affect what you are doing with your life. Your business is your business. The moment you begin to let other people’s thoughts and values start dictating how you live your own life, it is no longer yours.”
So many times in life, I didn’t get something I wanted, something I thought was perfect for me. I see now that those things I thought I needed, were exactly what I didn’t need. Even if you can’t understand it now, be humble about letting those disappointments go and accept that it may be for the best.”
I am not perfect. I’m not stick thin, I dont have perfect teeth, perfect skin, perfect hair, perfect anything. I get insecure, self conscious, I’m awkward, I’ve had more embarrassing moments on national TV than I have fingers. And that’s okay. You are all so beautiful. And I really hope you realize it. But I’ve learned that it’s insignificant whether or not other people love you or accept you, YOU have to love and accept yourself. It’s okay not to be perfect. Your imperfections are what make you YOU. And I don’t know how helpful this may be but I hope it puts a smile on your face and you realize that if you’re going through rough times, I’m here for you.
