Be Yourself

On my walk to work this morning I was thinking about the meaning of these two simple words. To be your authentic self brings happiness, contentment, and success. I think back to the me I was 10 years ago, hiding behind the me I thought I should be - the me I thought everyone wanted and would love.

The real me is loved and respected and confident (well...confident-ish). Is this the wisdom that comes with age?  The pay off for weight gain, wrinkles, and graying hair?

This is the Little Man with me in this picture, from September 2002.  So I am about 29 1/2 here... I look so good.  I need to go back on Weight Watchers and kick my Slurpee habit.  Even then could I ever look this young again???  Doubt it.

Look how unimpressed he looks with the tea cozy on his head!  Hahaha
