Nothing is yet in its true form.

You are right where you are supposed to be and it’s up to you to see that as good enough. If it’s not enough, you gotta get your perspective right and your head back on straight.

Stick to who you are, do not go down the ugly path of comparing and you’ll find your confidence, because no one can do what you are doing better than you! YOU are your biggest asset you see. Isn’t that comforting? Woo-hoo! And when you are being you, that grabs peoples attention. Don’t strive to fit in, strive to fit where you belong and you’ll be much happier.

Giving is the key to happiness, so don’t get so caught up on you. Get caught up on what your way of contributing might be. That’s real. That’s refreshing. That’s the ticket!
