The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.

-Anna Quindlen

I have so much to say about this quote that I'm not even sure where to start. Who are you? Truly. Without anyone telling you what to do or when. Without being influenced by catalogs, commercials, and celebrities. Without someone else's ideas about perfection. Who are you?
