I can sit and read through quotes and inspirational messages all day long. In my phone I have notes and text messages of quotes and affirmations they help me through my day. I ran across two quotes by Stacey Charter. Amazingly I can't find any information on this wonderful woman. Here are two of my favorites.
“There comes a time when you have to stand up and shout:
This is me damn it! I look the way I look, think the way I think, feel the way I feel, love the way I love! I am a whole complex package. Take me... or leave me. Accept me - or walk away! Do not try to make me feel like less of a person, just because I don't fit your idea of who I should be and don't try to change me to fit your mold. If I need to change, I alone will make that decision.
When you are strong enough to love yourself 100%, good and bad - you will be amazed at the opportunities that life presents you.”
"Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself - no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are - completely; the good and the bad - and make changes as YOU see fit - not because you think someone else wants you to be different."
I love to post quotes like these on my Facebook page because you never know who may need to see something inspiring for the day. If you have any quotes you live by or positive affirmations please let me know!
