Just OWN it

Every so often I come across something so powerful I want to share it on my both my blogs.  This is one of those posts.  Thanks to my friend, Roots to Blossom for sharing…

My friend told me I could share her post.

I love this quote from her Mother-In-Law. She said “Tell them you like pink. Get some other pink things, a pink hat, flower, bow, necklace, color your hair pink. Own it. If they want to look let them look. If they want to ask, let them ask, Who cares what they think. If these glasses help you feel better…that’s all that matters, you are all that matters, not them. Just own it. Be someone who wears pink. why not”

I love the concept to Own who and what I am.  Not cover me up.  Not hide from the World but truly embrace who I am and Own it.  I believe this is beyond acceptance.  With acceptance, I always sense a wide streak of reluctance that if there were something ‘better’ I would do it.

To me, Owning it is embracing events and who I am as something awesome.  I also believe it is the key to thriving because I stop looking for something else because I OWN it.
