{31 Days} Day 15: The Sweetness of Being You

Monday, October 21, 2013

I've written before about knowing who you are...but being content with who you are, with what your life looks like, finding joy and peace in your everyday is even more vital.

loving your natural hair color

speaking and walking with the easy confidence that says 'I am happy being me; I don't need to prove something different to the world.'

understanding that you are not the best at time management

choosing the bright hues of color that you are repeatedly drawn to

writing the words that you want to, in the style you love

painting, even if it is messy, because that is how you like it

finding your signature piece, such as eye-catching rings or stripes or green or hats or jeans

playing the music you love, even if it is different from what your friends take delight in

granting yourself the sunsets that you want to remember watching

accepting that chocolate is one of your necessities for living

taking + claiming those moments of solitude and beauty so your soul can breathe

knowing that you are a person of touch, of hugs and love.

That's the sweetness of being you.
