Being You




'Being you is the only thing at which 
you will always be the best in the world'

'You will always know more about what you're thinking about than anyone else.
You will always look better than you think you do in the mirror. 
The face you see will be far less warm and attractive than the face seen by a friend.
Expressions make a face....
Never let anyone write you off.
And never, never write yourself off.'
 

Extract from the (library) book "One - living as one and loving it" by Victoria Alexander p.87
Photo - Ned Kelly grevillea, an Australian native, yesterday morning in our garden.

How I love these native flowers for the birds, bees and butterflies they attract. Lovely to sit and watch them all visiting.
