I saw this beautiful ribbon the other day and just had to buy it because it reminded me of something:

Tape measures can only help us to understand and communicate one aspect of an object.

We should avoid taking the ‘tape measure’ approach to other areas of our life……

Your self-esteem should not be bound up in your waist or thigh measurements.

Your work should not be thought of as just numbers and figures. You are not a machine.

The value of a life is not related to its length.

We invented the tape measure, the tape measure didn’t invent us. You are not an object.

Let it go and breathe.
