I’ve been the one who does what has to be done. I’m becoming the one who does what can be done.
I worry about and take care of everyone else, which means I tend to get left by the wayside. I have given up so much in the past few years to make sure other people are safe and sound. Which, surprisingly, has led me to a good place too. Actually, it has led me to no place at all, which kinda means I get a do-over. I can choose to settle like I have in the past, or I can make my life what I truly want….not what I–or someone else–thinks I deserve. Not just good enough, but holy-damn-fuckin’-cool good.
I’m not going to settle for what other people are willing to give me, I’m also not going to settle for what I have been giving myself. I don’t just get to create the life I want, I get to create the me I want.
I am sick of Andie MacDowell and Diane Keaton being the only ones telling me I’m worth it. I guess I’ll start telling myself, and hopefully someone else will see it’s true.
