Are we broken? Do we need fixing?



I’m gonna go out on a limb here and ask…

Are we broken? Do we need fixing?

Are we like this teddy bear? Worn out and of no use?

We have had many people tell us for so long that we don’t measure up. That we are not good enough, skinny enough, pretty enough, clever enough, rich enough, worthy enough.

What do you think? Are they right?

Are we measuring up?

Measure up to who?

Measure up to what?







Who gets to set the bar?

Who gets to do the measuring?

How can anyone measure another?

Why do we even need to be measured?


We are not the same.

We are not the same. Nor would we ever want to be.

I cannot be measured by you and your beliefs, dreams, experiences and you cannot be measured by mine.

Our lives are completely different.



One size does not fit all!

Each and every person is their own uniqueness. A rare gem that will never ever be seen again. A one of a kind beauty that makes this world the magnificent Art that it is.


Stop judging!

When we stop judging another for their differences, maybe, just maybe, we allow our lives to be enhanced.

Enough of shutting down a persons’s light. Blackening it, to the point they can’t even remember their own worth. How can we possibly benefit from that? And of course that includes ourselves as well.

So that brings me back to the question.

Are we broken? Do we need fixing?

Have we allowed ourselves to be dictated to. Have we allowed the words and actions from others to become our beliefs? To be controlled by judgmental beliefs of another. To believe in their judgements instead of working it out for ourselves. To listen to our own intelligence.


You matter!

You don’t need anyone to tell You how to be. Just choose to be.

Choose to be here. Decide to be whatever you want to be and go for it!

Start appreciating You!

Find ways every day to remind yourself of what is good in You. You know them! How you feel matters. What you think about yourself, totally matters.

Don’t leave it up to others to do it for you. Don’t wait on someone else’s schedule to fit you in. Don’t wait on others to tell you that you matter and you are worthy.

Do it yourself! You are with you 24/7. What better person can do it better than you can?

This quote from Sara Henderson says it all

“Don’t wait for a light to appear at the end of the tunnel. Stride down there and light the bloody thing yourself

Stop beating yourself up for past/ present choices. Stop comparing yourself to someone else, what they have, what they do or be.

Just stop!

Remember, You matter too! Stop believing others know better than you do. They are not You therefore they cannot know you better. Trust in yourself. Trust in your own inner voice. That most beautiful voice within, knows you, knows your rhythm, knows your unique beat, knows your special tune. Work it girlfriend!!!

Break that measuring stick!

Break that dam measuring stick!

Don’t measure yourself! Feel your heart beating for You. You are here for a reason. Not to be a follower but to become a leader of your own self. You are not here on this amazing Earth, to be SOMEONE ELSE!

You are not broken! And you don’t need fixing!

You just need to be loved, cared for, accepted exactly as you are, by Yourself first.


My own journey.

I haven’t got all the answers for myself. I’m learning as I go. But I am ready! I am ready to stand up and rise within myself.

To no longer shut myself down because of a seed of belief planted a long time ago that I was not good enough. It is no longer needed. And replace it with whatever you want. You are the carer of You. You decide what seeds you plant now. You decide what is best for you.

When you rise up. You uplift the world!

That’s how important you are!

That’s how precious you are!

That’s how beautiful you are!

Don’t let anyone tell you any different.


One last time!

And so I ask you one last time


Well that’s a big hell NO from me!

Your answer is your choice.

Be brilliant! Be You! Be the leader of yourself! Be happy!

I leave you with this quote from Bert Lance

“If it ain’t broke. Don’t fix it”
