I'M GOOD ENOUGH

C and I were watching an episode of Oprah (OK we 'fess up!) and Oprah was interviewing Grey's Anatomy star Chandra Wilson. They were talking about people always wanting to be someone they aren't. One day I'll be thinner, richer, more clever, happy etc. And Chandra Wilson was talking about the speech she gave when she won a Screen Actor's Guild award. She said when she gave the speech she said it for her daughters. She wanted them to know that it doesn't matter what your colour or your shape or size. That WHO you are is what matters. She said this great line during the Oprah interview and I had to write down:

"I'm good enough. Already. Right here. In this skin.Where I am right now."

Make sure you know that for yourself.
