“Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.”
– Alan Cohen

I am feeling incredibly thankful at the moment. I have been stressed lately, obsessing over obsolete things that are unimportant in the grand scheme of things and beating myself up about them. Sometimes it is easy to get worked up and then be unsure how to come back down again! Luckily, I am surrounded by wonderful, caring people both family and friends full of pep talks and reassurance, who happened to have a spare rope lying around that they could throw me to help me find my way back down to the ground again. 🙂 I love how raw and true this quote is. So many of us out there (including me!) can be self deprecating and we need to cut ourselves some slack! Family and friends sometimes have the power to see us clearer than we see ourselves. So this blog post is dedicated to the people that have helped me lately (they know who they are), all my blogging buddies that fill my days full of laughter and fun and also to all the other people out there who help people up when they stumble! 🙂
