That’s Melissa‘s new (first) tattoo. Isn’t that just FANTASTIC?!?!
Think about it for a while…
You are you.
Does that make you smile? Cringe? A little of each?
What if we each got to a point where being ourselves actually seemed pleasant??
How many times in a day do you get disgruntled with yourself?
What if… what if instead you just took a deep breath, smiled a little, and said gently to yourself “You are you. Now isn’t that pleasant?”
I personally find the “you-est” parts of you to be the most delightful.
Here’s to embracing ourselves and each other exactly as we are. Today, may you be fully, authentically, pleasantly You.
