I took this from Kristin Armstrong's blog she write for Runner's World.
For some reason, it seemed to speak to me today.
"There will invariably be people who do not accept you. And in that case you must be your own badass self, without apology." - Katie Goodman
Maybe it's because I feel I apologize a lot for who I am, for my shortcomings, for my "flaws."
Maybe it's because, for all the most amazing and wonderful compliments 30 people will give me, I seem to hang on to the demeaning and nasty words of 1 person. And then believe them.
Maybe it's because I so easily forget all the good things about myself whenever they are not acknoweldged by another.
Maybe I need to just silence the voices of those who do not accept me.
Because yeah, there are things about me the aren't always shiney and happy and pretty. And maybe I can work to change them, or maybe I won't.
But they are me.
