peace with who I am…


How can I swoon
over the mystic maker
of waves and flowers and wind
and stars and trees and sky and sea
and also dishonor the spark
that is me?

“Self-acceptance is that gentle place we get to
when we make peace with who we are.”

-Melody Beattie


  1. Yet more words of wisdom. Thank you.
    And the you that we see is a warm, beautiful and inspirational spark. Someone to warm our hearts on.

  2. Wow. Wow. You just asked THE big question. You’re right. Lovin’ your words, Jennifer. And, lovin’ your photos. This black eyed susan field is…gorgeous. Peaceful. I can hear the gentle breeze. Love to you my friend, k

  3. Yes!
    The most important question I have come across in a long time. This is the perfect start to my day. And I think this is gonna stick with me!

  4. Amen

  5. Excellent question. Beautiful image.

  6. Hi Jennifer, this is great wisdom. When I discovered how much God loves me, I started to be more accepting of the marvel that I am. God doesn’t make junk became my mantra. If we could only realize the miracle that we really are, we would all love who we are. After all we didn’t made ourselves. We are wonderfully made by a loving Creator.

    Have a blessed week.

  7. So true and your photograph fits the words perfectly 🙂

  13. These are important words — I, for one, am often known to slip into a great lack of confidence and self-esteem. But you are one hundred percent right!

  14. Yes. I’m on this road too. To peel back layers of who I really am. Not who I’m supposed to be. It feels strange and so right- this self love for me.
