So everyday in my e-mail inbox, I find a lil e-mail from Melody Ross's Brave Girl site. Today's affirmation really struck me .... Have a read!
This made me really happy today .. like realizing that it's actually cool to be different and awkward! For someone who is outgoing, I've come to realize in many ways, that I am actually quite socially inept. I can be the loud voice, the laughter, the jokester, but I never seem to find the right words to say in a group setting ... it feels forced and kinda strange. I am a deep intense soul .. and I have been berated and cast aside (and absolutely embraced) in my life because people don't know what to do with that .. or it is too much! I GET IT ... seriously I do ... but that's me. It makes me different .... and that's okay! If you've been inside my heart, you will always have that place ... it's like having some kind of special blocked off place that is yours ... I have lots of these places in my heart, for lots of special people. Sometimes those places get closed off for a while .. and ya know .. that's okay too! I always manage to return in my own privacy and relish that part of my heart (your part), and savour it. It's what has made me .. well ME!
So if you have an odd, strange way about yourself that some people sometimes don't get or appreciate ... LOVE that part of you. Chances are there are many people that love it too .. even though the words don't always come out right!
A tad deep yes ... but a tad happy too! :)
Hugs and MMMMMMWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAA!
