Happy Father's Day to all the dads, adoptive dads, father figures, and fur baby fathers!!! Whatever type of father you happen to be, you're an incredibly important part of your children's lives and the lives of those around you. You're amazing and deserve to be acknowledged for all that you do every single day, not just today. Sending love and best wishes to all the fathers out there! I hope you have a wonderful day full of joy!!
I am 24 years old today! It's kind of hard to believe I'm at another birthday again, because the passage of time over this past year has been so wonky. That said, I'm very grateful to have made it through what was an incredibly harrowing, fearful year for many of us.
Don't rely on other people to determine your own self worth. It's fine to want to feel needed by family, friends, and other loved ones. It's alright to devote much of our time and effort to them, too. However, other people don't reflect your worth as a person. Your worth is so much greater than what those around you think of you. Always remember you're a king/queen all on your own. You don't need other people to validate or reinforce that.
Finally, warm weather is here, and my kitties are absolutely loving it! The forecast looks nice and sunny for the next several days, so I’m hoping the spring weather is here to stay this time. I know my cats are, too, because they’ve just loved basking in the recent sunlight!
You are amazing, gorgeous, and worthy just as you are. You don't need to change to suit the expectations and standards of others. If they can't appreciate you for who you are, then they don't deserve you. Because you're beautiful just the way you are now. Remember that, and know you're worth it. You're worthy of love, respect, and so many other wonderful things, solely for being who you are.
