Note to Myself # 14

Are you happy you are who you are?

Often, it takes much work
to get to this place of. . . 
more than mere acceptance,
a place of celebration.

A place where we realize
(as Carole King said)
you've got to take the bitter
 with the sweet.

If you're not there yet,
what do you need to change?

Do you see yourself as others see you?

If you're too self-critical,
where does that come from?
What old tapes are you playing too often?

What are your best qualities?
What are the benefits of your worst qualities?
