The Shift

Once told she was too “ugly” for a particular roll, Meryl Streep had a decision to make – she could have allowed this opinion to derail her dream of becoming an actress, or she could pull herself up and believe in herself. Her response, “I’m sorry you think I’m too ugly for your film but you’re just one opinion in a sea of thousands and I’m off to find a kinder tide.” To date, she has won 158 awards.

There is a pivotal moment in life when the tide shifts and we either push forward with what is naturally ours, or ¬†allow the inner turmoil of someone else to determine our course. What are you “too _______” for?
