I have to live with myself, so I want to be the kind of girl that's great to know.
I want to be able to look myself in the eyes, no matter the situations the passing years might bring. At the end of the day, I don't want to regret the way I've behaved...I want to stand tall, knowing my actions deserve respect--that I'm not all bluff and empty show. I want to be without pretense and bluster...be the same girl when I'm alone as when everything about my actions is seen.
I want to be able to like myself. I don't want it to be said that I never endeavored to learn anything new or that I lived side-by-side with people I never bothered to remember or that I never took time to throw away the hurts. I want to walk undaunted, committed to Christ...to be unafraid to wholeheartedly embrace what makes me unique while being quick to make course corrections.
I may fool everyone around, but I can't hide myself from me.
Of my flaws I am an expert... intimately aware of the things others will never know--when I'm most selfish or distracted. I can see what others may never see. I know all the subtle nuances of my weaknesses...all the rationalizations and cover-ups.
I can't fool myself. I know myself better than anyone, so when I look at the girl in the mirror, I want to know I haven't tried to cheat or disillusion her. I want to know the girl gazing back from the glass is my friend.
