“Don’t wait for someone to bring you flowers. Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul.”
This quote really stuck me today, as I have realized lately that I need to be the keeper of my soul.
I can’t rely on my husband or my friends to make me happy. I have to figure out what it is that I need to be happy, and then seek it out, either with someone else, or on my own, if necessary.
This may be easy for some people. But for those of us with self esteem issues who have backed themselves into a corner, this can be a task of monumental proportions. I am learning to break down those huge tasks into baby steps, and slowly move towards my goals.
Heck, I haven’t had goals to work toward in almost a decade….so just having goals is a major thing for me right now!
