be you

A Snippet of Inspiration
Week Five

When I look back on my younger self I see someone who wasted a lot of time trying to fit in with people and places that just weren't me. 

This is what I want to tell my younger self.


We are each unique and our paths are unique. So each day I spend time learning and listening to my inner self. Who am I and where do I belong? 

You are a beautiful and unique flower. It's never too late to find out where YOU belong.

  2. I love growing older then it all seems like the rest was worth it or maybe I no longer worry about it. Age does wonders for your self esteem. Hug B

  3. I'm learning that, but it's hard when people try to pour you into the mold they've always put you in. Thanks for the encouraging word.

  5. I think that as we age we realize so many of the things we thought were so important in our youth really do not matter. I am myself and if others don't like me this way - then let it be. It's just not important to please everyone and be everyone's best friend. Ahhh, what a freedom!

  6. Laura, I know that I have changed through the years. I hope for the better. I have always tried to be kind...because it matters. It is easier to one's self than to try to be someone else. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  7. I was close to 50 before I realized where I DID NOT belong. Took me till age 54 to get out. It took all the courage I could summon, and I was terrified of the world he said I could not make it alone in. I like being alone. He was wrong.
