You ever just


feel like you have had a weight lifted off your shoulders...well that's how I feel today. I had a very candid conversation with one of my mentors about some things and now I feel like I can move forward.

I have been an extremely critical person of someone, I mean extremely critical of this person, always finding fault and NEVER any good, NEVER anything positive. I always seem to compare this person to others and I never see this person for the wonderful person that she really is...

That person that I have been so very critical of is myself!

I have been really coming into my own lately and haven't been doing that as much, less and less (I am still a work in progress)...

I am at a point now where I realize that I am who I am and I can only be who I am going to be...the only thing that I can do is try to be the very BEST person that I can be...and so this morning as I sat and I let the words roll off of my tongue and I moved forward towards the next steps of really fulfilling myself and coming to terms with just who TC is and what she is really all about...I am really alright with everyone that is around me.

I think it just takes us saying certain things out loud and allowing ourselves to be vulnerable and honest with ourselves than we can just move forward. Lately, I have been feeling pretty darn good about myself, realizing and understanding that I AM a good human being with many talents and gifts and that I have my own personal light that I need to recognize within myself...

So I thought that I would share that...I know that a lot of times we always see what the person next to you has to offer but you can't see what it is that makes YOU so very special...

I can't judge how green my grass should be by looking at my neighbors yard...

I just need to take care of my own...

Peace

Very well said!
I agree 100%.
As Oprah has often said people should be in the habit of "living their BEST lives!"

Only you can truly be your measuring stick in life. What happens to others has nothing to do with you. Everyone has their own unique purpose and perceptions in this thing called life. And you can only live life grand when you are willing to be and give your best at all times.

Hey t.c.. Hats off. And I just
got around to reading your
"truth" response. Blacks in the
know here in Canada are aware
that slavery went on here as
well. And the even smarter ones
are knowledgable of the fact
that we were , and still are
Kings and Queens. The only Blacks
that don't acknowledge racism
in Canada are those in denial.
