I don’t remember when it started.
I can’t think back to a specific event, moment in time or idea that let me know that it was OK.
I just always remember liking who I am. Embracing everything that I am.
I only hung out with people who could accept me for me, because I wasn’t changing for anyone. This attitude hasn’t shifted as I have got older.
I am 35 years old. I am a wife, a mother, a step-mom, an ex wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a grand-daughter, an aunt, a niece, a blogger, a beer drinker, a full-time professional and a college graduate
I have stretch marks, a past, a few extra pounds, a loud voice, a positive can-do attitude, an adjustment disorder, determination to do just about anything and a temper.
Things in life can certainly make you question yourself. What about me? What is wrong with me? What could I do different?
I have made mistakes, even those I embrace. If I didn’t, how could I learn from them? I still embrace all that I am.
How does the saying go? You have to love yourself before others can love you? Embrace yourself!
