Morning Ladies,How do you perceive yourself? Is it the same way others see you? Often times we are hard on ourselves, and I think, as women, compare ourselves to others or we find flaws in our own selves. I loved this quote by Marilyn Monroe, “ Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.' There are so many quotes about being yourself, and being happy with what you see. What I have come to realize over the years, is that, i strive to be a good person and the person I am proud to be. All of the insecurities over the years, especially in my youth have faded, as i look at myself as someone who has overcome challenges, a person who cares about others, and someone with a strong relationship with family.
