I decided long ago that I will never settle for anything in life. I am thankful to say that I was raised to hold myself to high standards and I have been mentored by those who have further instilled this in me. These people who have graced my life also taught me to never compromise my true self, and that as long as I didn’t, I could always keep my head up high.
We are adaptable, constantly changing creatures. It is said that you become most like the five people with whom you spend the most time, so choose your company carefully and keep your standards high. Likewise, be true to yourself and own it with your head high. It doesn’t matter if you are currently not in the place in life you wish to be, or that your physical body might not be at the exact weight that you want, what matters is that you are true to yourself, for when you are, everything else will fall into place.
Simply put? Be you and never settle. You are better than good enough.
