It's Good To Be Yourself

I had a great conversation the other day with my dear friend, Jo. We were looking at a video of one of my recent music favs, Marie Digby. I think Marie Digby is totally adorable, and I wish I could sing like her, be cute like her, and just be brave the way she is in pursuing her love of music. Unfortunately, I am none of these things. Both Jo and I were praising her virtues, but Jo stopped and said the above quote. And, for some reason, I thought I should share it.

I admire that she sees flaws in herself, but is still glad to be herself. I think that's an admirable trait to have. I don't think I'd be comfortable being someone else either, and I hope we can all realize our own potential and value ourselves too, just the way we are.

Have a happy day!

Yeah, I'm generally happy to be me. I just would rather be me with about 40 less lbs.
