Most of this world seems to be more concerned with being Socially Accepted (fitting in, gaining the approval of others) than being Self-Accepting (embracing your true self with all of your unique imperfections). Well, it doesn’t have to be this way for you.
Think about it this way…what if you re-frame how you look at your imperfections and choose to embrace all of you? And really, why are we so concerned with what the average person out there thinks of us anyway?
You can make the choice each morning to be Self-Accepting by taking off the façade and just being you. That might be scary, but the more you practice being you, the more natural and comfortable it will feel.
God created you just the way you are, perfectly imperfect. What a gift! Life is a gift and it’s what you make of it. When I choose to let go and embrace my imperfections to make the choice to be Self-Accepting, I can tell you, it’s absolutely freeing! You can “test it out” for yourself today and it starts with letting go of what other people think, letting go of trying to gain the approval of others, and letting go of trying to be someone you aren’t.
Below are four statements that can help you feel more Self-Accepting. Speak these throughout the day and see how it feels…
- I am Perfect just the way I am.
- I am choosing to be Self-Accepting.
- I was designed this way for a reason.
- I really am Perfect just the way that I am!
You get to make a choice each morning and it’s up to you!

How do you want your eggs? I’m sure we have all been asked that question before at breakfast. Maybe you like them scrambled, over-hard, sunny-side up, or over-easy.
Now ask yourself that same question but replace the word eggs, with life. How you do want your life? Scrambled, over-hard, over-easy, or sunny-side up?
Inspire Moment #99 is to help bring happiness to you today and suggest the Sunny-Side Up way for life. If life is over-hard or scrambled for you right now, Sunny-Side Up could just be the approach to take. If life seems way over-easy and you need more motivation or balance in your life, Sunny-Side Up could be just the answer for you.
Here a few suggestions on how to begin living Sunny-Side Up…
Try different things in life. Example- Maybe the scrambled eggs you got at that diner weren’t that good, so instead of ordering the same dish the next time you go do something different and order Sunny-Side Up. Try something different in your life today. It could be very simple.
Be open to life and don’t be afraid to ask. Example-Maybe you already like Sunny-Side Up eggs but you don’t feel full when you are done and it doesn’t taste as flavorful of a dish anymore. Usually there are some potatoes or bread on your dish to dip into the yolk, but lately it’s just been the eggs at the diner. Next time you’re there be open to ask for a side of bread or more potatoes. Don’t be afraid to ask! You never know unless you ask. You could even be open to spicing it up by putting some hot sauce on those eggs. Test out something new and see how it sits with you. Try to be open to life and all the different results you will feel when you try new ways. Remember, you can’t experience what you don’t know.
Just like you have a choice on how you want your eggs cooked, you also can make a choice on how you want to live your life. Ready. Set. Go…for Sunny-Side-Up!
