Being Yourself…

“To be beautiful means to be yourself.

You don’t need to be accepted by others.

You need to accept yourself.” Thich Nhat Hanh

As the New Year begins,

many people make resolutions about

how they want to change and improve themselves.

And when they fall short after a few weeks,

they then blame themselves and feel bad.

What if our New Year’s resolution was

to accept ourselves completely,


and with all our imperfections?

When we decide to fully embrace who we are,

we live counter cultural and escape the addiction

of our time to impress others with creating images

of success that hide our human and true selves.




our true

and human selves.

Let’s make 2023 a year

of “freedom to be”!
