I have this best friend, E, who has this best friend Mal, who came across this blog Yes and Yes, who came across a post about being AWESOME!
Okay, so now here's where the story gets even better - I had a rough week to say the least. E came to the rescue when I needed it most (along with Whit and my favorite new tee) with a message reminding me that is okay to be awesome :) Sometimes we can't always stop the bad days, but it's amazing that we can't help but be who we are!
So Sarah Von, creator and writer behind Yes and Yes, scribbled down a few "It's Ok " statements. Just to give you a glimpse at what she's talking about and I'm loving, please read out loud:
"It’s OK to be the smartest, the cutest, the sassiest, the brassiest, the best-dressed, the most well-versed AND the most ambitious person in the room."
"It’s OK to know exactly what you want and to GO for it — guns a-blazing, Lady Gaga-style."
"It’s OK to have dreams that make no sense to the casual observer — and to actualize them."
"It’s OK to kick everything to the curb and start from scratch."
"It’s OK to be a supernova."
"It’s OK to be sought after."
"It’s OK to take more than 2 weeks of vacation per year. Much, much more."
"It’s OK to spend a lot of time, energy and money improving your mind, body and soul."
"It’s OK to be the life of the party."
"It’s OK to love so fiercely it hurts."
"It’s OK to be legendary."
"It’s OK to surround yourself with people who are just as awesome as you are … and maybe ever awesomer."
"It’s OK — really, truly, honestly — to be awesome."
Aren't these amazing, brilliant and life-changing boosters all packed into one kit & kaboodle? Thank you E, Mal, Whit, Yes and Yes, Sarah and most of all the fact that It's OK to be OK with yourself.
Life, throw me the punches, toss me a few more hurdles, try kicking me to the curb, I dare you ... double-dog dare you ... to forget that It's OK to be hurt and realize at the end of the day no one has the power to make you feel less than you are or ever will be.
Now, I'm off to roll with the weekend! :)
