Changing myself

The only one thing I can change is myself, but sometimes it makes all of the difference.’. Unknown

As you all have probably realised I love quotes. I adore them on paper, screen, wall art, notebook, magnets anywhere. They inspire and uplift me.

The quote above is pretty apt for the stage I am reaching in my life. For a long time I haven’t really liked who I was. To chubby, to weak, to thick, not dedicated enough , terrible wife, dreadful mother have all been thoughts that have crowded my mind at one point or another.

I’ve never allowed myself to see what I’ve achieved or how far I’ve come. Or how strong I have been. The negative has definitely overweighed the positive.

Yet today while mucking about in a clothes store with Alan my husband I finally realised the difference between vanity and respect for oneself.

Looking in the mirror and saying “hey you are pretty ok”. Is not the same as saying “hey world look how great I am”.

The time has come for change, I believe I have a lot to be proud of. I have achievements I should respect.

As the quote says “‘The only one thing I can change is myself,” but doing this has made a difference.
