add the sentiment found in this quote by Dita Von Teese: You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there’s still going to be somebody who hates peaches. The irony of my love for this quote is that I hate peaches. Even more ironic is that in doing my research to find out who said this, I discovered that Dita Von Teese and I have quite a difference of opinion on the matter of modesty. I think that’s the most diplomatic way to say that I’m not a supporter of striptease shows. So lets agree that she can be a peach and I’ll be a honeycrisp apple and we can each be the best version of our heart’s desire.
Speaking of becoming the best version of my heart’s desire, I also wanted to add another blessing I have received by writing these posts each week. You’ll have to forgive me for this post being centered around myself, but I feel the need to express my gratitude for the gifts that have come from this venture. Perhaps in sharing the positives that my “beginning” has afforded me will encourage others to begin their own passions. This blessing that I speak of is the opportunity that each post provides me to rededicate myself to the messages within. I am far from perfect and yet each week I get to come here and strive to be true to myself. I have to look at the true beauty of my individuality whether I feel beautiful or not on that day. I have to remember that I am a Daughter of God with purpose and worth. And in writing these words, I need to practice these words. I can honestly say that I struggle daily with so many of the topics I write about here. But each week, I get to remind each of my readers, and in turn myself, how wonderful each of us are and the gifts that we each have to offer this world.
Thank you for the gift that you have offered me through your comments in reminding me that I am not alone in my efforts to be better with each day. Here’s to being the ripest and juiciest version of yourself!
