"Be a first rate version of yourself,
not a second rate version of someone else."
- Judy Garland
They are words I need to remember everyday. It's hard not to want what others have. It can range from anything as simple as wanting someone else's hair style, to wishing for their life. I look at other more established writers, and it's hard not to want to be in their shoes. But I also know that I need to make the journey myself, so I can appreciate it when I get there.
Heavenly Father did not make us the way we are by accident. We are all His creations, each one made with care and love. When we put ourselves down, we are putting our Creator down.
We all need to stand up and be proud of who we are. There may always be room for improvement, but don't ever forget who the real you is.
