To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring.

Accept who you are

Envision a person who loves you for who you are. Then be that person.

Think of how it would be to have someone who accepts your flaws, forgives your missteps, understands your quirks. You can do all that for yourself.

Certainly you’d like to improve various aspects of your life and your behavior. But that doesn’t mean you have to reject or condemn the way you already are.

While you’re working on doing better, accept where you are. With that acceptance you encourage and empower yourself to move forward.

As a significant added benefit, you learn to be more accepting of others. Love who you are, and that love is available for giving to those you care about.

Accept who you are, where you are, how you are. Free yourself to be your best.

— Ralph Marston
