I sat down before work this morning to start this post. But I just wasn't quite ready. I had to really think about this for a while. I didn't have to figure out that I do love myself. Because that I know, I do. It took me a long time to get there ... thanks to what I hate about me. I didn't realize that it was ok to like/love me. I think it is just as important to like yourself. Love can exsist without like. But to truly like & love is complete for me.
I realized when I found myself again that I do like who I am. I realized not everyone is going to like me & that is ok. I don't have to be liked by the masses. I only need to be liked by those that matter in my world.
So after a lot of pondering today I realized what I do love about myself most is that I DO NOT fit into any box. I am who I am because I choose to be. Not because society says I have to be. Oh trust me it was way easier sometimes to stay inside the box & just go along not ever being noticed.
That box was safe for a long time. But when I realized I wasn't being true to myself I said fuck that box, I was escaping & I am no longer thinking or living inside that box.
I love being able to go anywhere & not give a shit if people are looking at me thinking 'what the hell is she thinking' I don't hurt anyone ... I live my life doing what makes me happy & comfortable. I am not an idiot nor am I white trash. I am me. And me is ok.
I am a creative soul that is not afraid to reach outside of the creative lines & color.
So that is what I love about me ... I don't fit into any box ... I fly out & stretch my wings.
