Do you feel you’re:-

- too tall
- too fat
- too thin
- hair too straight
- hair too curly
- nose too big
- nose too crooked
- legs too long
- legs too short

Goodness! The list goes on, doesn’t it?!
We’re human and we’ll never be satisfied with what we have. But here’s an interesting question for today – “Are you happy being just you?” :)
I’m human and thus not infallible. I confess to always wanting more – to be thinner, taller, richer, prettier … you name it, I’ve wished it at some point.
But it was only when I paused for a moment, took a step back, and took a good critical look at my life, that I realized that whilst it was fine to wish to be all those things, I really should just be happy with being just me, and enjoying my life right now, instead of craning my neck over the horizon to see what might be better. I have all my 5 senses intact, I have all 10 fingers and toes, I have a roof over my head and food in my belly and am relatively hale and hearty.
I really am not doing too badly, everything considered :) Being ambitious is one thing, being unhappy with being who you are, and not doing much about it, is another.
And when I had that realization, I also learnt to be a little happier with what I have and with being just me. Of course, some of the wants are still there, but I try to not let it upset me anymore. I now look at things more critically and I’d like to think, am a lot happier for it :)
Your say: Are you happy being you? If you aren’t, perhaps its time to take stock of things :)
