Day 101/365

I found this little flower and I think it's meant as a gift tag, but it caught my eye because all of the words inscribed on the petals have been used to describe me by people I love and admire.

And it seemed almost to jump at me, in my fever-addled haze this week, that maybe it's time I actually believed that sometimes other people see me more clearly than I see myself.

We are so quick to believe the negative things that people say throughout our lives, to believe the one mean kid that called us ugly, or stupid. But at the same time we constantly and consistently dismiss when people tell us that we are, for lack of a better word: wonderful.

When we start to believe that maybe those lovely voices are actually right... we blossom. I blossom. I'm trying to blossom.

So, instead of hearing over and over and over the one single voice of dissent... I'm trying to hear the myriad of people telling me I am better than I've believed myself to be.
