To those inner folks that live inside me, who feel they failed, please listen and believe--inner child, inner wife, inner daughter-in-law, inner stepmother--you were perfect. You tried so hard. You did your best. No one should have ever said otherwise to you. No one.
You were perfect. You still are.
As a recovering perfectionist, I don't use that term lightly. :)
So twirl, flourish, and enjoy life!
