I checked the results of the latest poll on Self Esteem, and I feel discouraged….but not surprised. Check this out;
Question: How is our Self Esteem these days?
See full poll results at the right side of the blog. Sorry – only US map available!
Nearly 60% hate ourselves. Hate. That is the strongest word we can use against ourselves, and I chose it deliberately for the poll.
I want to hear from you…
Why did you vote how you did?
If you didn't vote – do so now and explain your choice.
I could sit here and tell you all the benefits about the power of positive thinking, and try to convince you to put on a happy face, but unless you feel it and believe it, and want it…you'll never get there.
I love myself. I truly do, and I am not afraid to say it.
I'll be 40 this year and I am excited about life! Sure, aging is kinda scary, the wrinkles are starting to show, the body not the same as 20 years ago, but I say who cares! Who cares because I am here to live my life and I am not going to miss one single moment of it on vanity.
I was born with one gift, and that gift is to have a very distinct, constant, awareness of death.
Life can not and should not ever be taken for granted because it can be over in a snap. If I was gone tomorrow, I would go knowing that I lived my best life, I spent everyday trying to be the best person I could be, I tried to give and love to the fullest, and most of all – no regrets.
No regrets…now that's an amazing thing to be able to claim.
How about you?
