Give Yourself a Break

By Monica Link
Live Your Dreams Now!

In a world full of checklists and goals its easy to be judge, jury and executioner of yourself without anyone saying anything. I'm talking about the judgement you give yourself. This week superstar Jessica Simpson put her wedding on hold with her fiance. She took the pressure off of herself by putting the wedding date on pause. Simpson, who recently had a show about beauty, doesn't take herself too seriously because she has a lot of critics.
Are you your worst critic? Are you always tearing yourself down thinking it will make you better? Being overly critical of yourself will only hurt you in the long run. You'll spend your time, energy and money trying to prove to something to yourself.
There is nothing wrong with you or what you have. You just have to make yourself better. Mistakes happen, failures happen and a hair will fall out of place. Don't cry if you miss one hair appointment and don't die because you feel like you said something wrong.
I recently had 30 seconds of fame on a national TV show and the wind got to my hair a little. I was so worried about it all day. At the end, I looked great and it was no big deal. My hair wasn't perfect, but its ok. I'm not defined by a hair day, a bank account or where I live. What's important is my heart and who I am. Mistakes will come but what's inside will always count.
Stop judging yourself and live your dreams. It doesn't matter if you're not the smartest, richest or the most put together. What matters is getting what you want. The road along the way will be paved with bumps, so enjoy the ride.
