A Refreshing Attitude

They put all their effort into enjoying themselves rather than judging themselves. The water was refreshing, as was their attitude. - Queenisms™

How many times have we denied ourselves the pleasure of this or that activity because we were too fat, too thin, too gray, too old, too whatever? When we allow “what will they think of me” to become the guiding principal by which we live our lives, we make our universe so small it’s a miracle we ever go outside. Here’s the deal, in our opinion. Someone is always looking at you and judging you – most often because they’re afraid, angry, hurt or feel less than good about themselves. Their fear rarely has anything whatsoever to do with you and you can’t do a darned thing about it. So staying hidden away and avoiding fun activities with your friends is just plain silly. They’re judging you for that, by the way. Please, oh please, don’t let the fear and anxieties of other people keep you from living your life fully. Put on a bathing suit. Wear a red hat. Laugh too loudly. Dance with abandon. Color outside the lines. Then look over at the judgmental and fearful eyes of anyone who is judging you and smile. Accept them as they are. Invite them to be more. Putting your light under a bushel doesn’t help their light shine brighter. It just keeps two lights under a bushel. Your new attitude can be refreshing – and change everything.

    Love your insights! Being Goddess of Myself, I forward so many of your quotes to my friends who haven’t quite reached that status within themselves yet! Keep up the good encouragement!

    You are a good friend Queen Millie! Whenever we come to love ourselves, we become magnetic and we suspect you’re lighting a path for your friends because of who you are – utterly perfect just the way you are.
