Born this way

I have been inspired by Glee again in writing this post. You know the episode; "Born this way" celebrating the music of Lady Gaga.

First let me share the video by the cast themselves

In the episode the cast each wear a t-shirt exploring their own personal flaw that they feel about themselves.  The hope being that they could accept the 'flaw' and know they are perfect as they are.  It's got me thinking.

What t-shirt would I wear?
Prone to depression
Talks too much
Double chin

But the thing is, I'm not sure I am really able to accept these flaws in myself.  I try, daily, but some days it's harder than others.  

And then I hear this section of the lyrics:
I'm beautiful in my way
'Cause God makes no mistakes
I'm on the right track, baby
I was born this way

Don't hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you're set
I'm on the right track, baby
I was born this way, born this way

And its a prayer for me.  One I pray morning, night and often in between.  "Lord help me see the ME you see, help me accept myself, help me know I'm good enough."

I loved that too.. It got me thinking about what I would put on my T-Shirt and I think that it would have to be something like:


That is at the root cause of many of my issues..



which causes many others!!

Am I ready to accept either - well maybe not just yet - but I pray for acceptance of them when the time is right!
