Imitation is Suicide. Insist on yourself; never imitate. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Write down in which areas of your life you have to overcome these suicidal tendencies of imitation, and how you can transform them into a newborn you – one that doesn’t hide its uniqueness, but thrives on it. There is a “divine idea which each of us represents” – which is yours?

Cooking: Am not a top chef. Far from. Don’t have the know-how/experience like my friends and family who are excellent cooks. When I try to create their recipes, like their tasty red cabbage slaw, super moist banana bread or delicious adobo, and it tastes like nothing like the way they made it, I feel like such a failure.

Still. That shouldn’t deter me from trying again. And again. And again. Remind myself: How did their recipes taste so delicious? Repeated trial and error.

Clothes: When I see outfits that I admire on other women, I look for it in the clothing stores. When it doesn’t fit my body and looks atrocious on me, I feel ugly. I zero in on my body flaws. I magnificy my promblematic hips, butt, waist and under arms.

But a little reality check snaps me back. I know that certain cuts or styles just don’t flatter me. I’m not a size 5 anymore. I have curvy hits and butt. My waist is not 24 inches, but I still have an hour-glass figure. My under arms are nothing to be ashamed of. Just continue to wear colors and silhouettes that make me feel good about me. #Trust30
