The Best Possible Version of You

Happy New Year!

I saw this quote awhile backquote & it struck me how much energy we expend on being who we think we should be, rather than simply getting comfortable with who we are.

We all know what we could strive to do better in various areas of our lives.

My only caution would be to ask yourself why you are putting forth the effort to make those changes?

Is it because you are trying to live up to someone else’s expectations?

Or is it because, in making those changes, it allows you to be the best possible version of yourself?

Give yourself permission to sift through the expectations of others and instead focus on what is right for you.

Be the best possible version of yourself, whoever that might be!

Happy New Year my friends and as always, thanks for reading!

    I think as we grow older it is easier to accept who we are, though there are so many pressures on young people nowadays to conform to other expectations. Happy New Year Lynn.

    Well said, Lynn! One of the advantages of aging, is being more confident and comfortable with ourselves!

      Thank you gf! It definitely takes some aging to recognize it’s okay to be exactly who you would like to be, rather than spending so much time worrying about who others think we should be.❤️
