Accept Me For Who I Am

Accept me for who I am today, not who I was when I was younger or who you expect me to be. For I can only be what my experiences have made me to be. I have tried to live up to other's expectations and found myself lacking. I can never measure up to something that doesn't exist. Nothing will be good enough when I am competing against someone else's vision. If all I can be is myself than that has to be what the universe wants me to be. I may not know what my future will bring, but it will be where I need to be. 

Let's walk for awhile...

(Today I observed people just enjoying being themselves. Not caring whether anyone was looking at them or not. They were just being who they are. I hope to one day live life with the care free attitude. Laughter is so contagious.)
