here's to you !

“How do you react when you think you need people's love? Do you become a slave for their approval? Do you live an inauthentic life because you can't bear the thought that they might disapprove of you? Do you try to figure out how they would like you to be, and then try to become that, like a chameleon? In fact, you never really get their love. You turn into someone you aren't, and then when they say "I love you," you can't believe it, because they're loving a facade. They're loving someone who doesn't even exist, the person you're pretending to be. It's difficult to seek other people's love. It's deadly. In seeking it, you lose what is genuine. This is the prison we create for ourselves as we seek what we already have.” 
 Byron Katie

may we take steps to discover and uncover who we TRULY are and who we are meant to be, and may we learn to fall in love with ourselves in a way that leaves us with no "need" for others to love us, like us or even validate us, may we be and do all those things FOR OURSELVES, TO OURSELVES...may we completely let go of, LOSE, the desire to become something or someone OTHER than who we are!  here's to YOU, whoever that is!  :)
