time for my friendship spiel

True friendship is like sound health; the value of it is seldom known until it be lost."
- Charles Caleb Colton

I have two friends whom i love dearly. One of them is my room mate and the other is a friend from the south. They are both fantastic amazing guys, with one minor flaw. They don’t live in the now, They live in the future. They both say they are not going to date until they have the Adonis body that is not real. They would rather miss out on great opportunities in life for some future date that may not ever come.

I really think that one has to love themselves now or the tomorrow that they hope for will never get here. Some people think they are too fat, too bald, too old, too slow. I say let it go... There is never a better time than right now to get out there and feel great about yourself exactly as you are. Just because you don’t look like everyone else in the magazines, or on tv, doesn’t mean you are not worthy. If there is one thing i can’t stand, it is the media and how it glamorizes looking rail thin, what ever happened to originality. Last time i checked we were individuals.

This is how the term is defined

1. Of or relating to an individual, especially a single human: individual consciousness.
2. By or for one person: individual work; an individual portion.

# Existing as a distinct entity; separate: individual drops of rain.
Serving to identify or set apart:

stop living for tomorrow and get out and feel great about today. If you don’t, you may live to regret it. Your mind is the only thing you can set free. your mind holds all the keys for unlocking ALL the doors in your life. Break the mold and love you for you right now...Stop saying your too fat, too old, too tired, too slow. BE!

I leave you with this:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
