Do you love yourself? The way you look? Honestly. I know everyone has something that they don’t like about themselves and that’s okay sometimes but spending time focusing on the bad isn’t good for anyone.
When we went to the Dole Plantation, Piglet and I took a picture together and when I uploaded the picture to my computer, I immediately hated it.
All I could see was the negative, how chunky I looked. I thought “Piglet looks so cute and there I am, all blah.” But I uploaded it to Facebook anyway and do you know what?
It was one of the most liked pictures that I had uploaded that day. One friend even commented and said how beautiful it was. Despite what I thought of the picture, other people thought we looked great.
It’s no surprise that I do not look like a supermodel. I’m only 5’4″, I wouldn’t even qualify. And yes, I have had 2 kids so no, I am not a size 2. I’ve never been a size 2. I will probably never be a size 2. And that’s okay. Because there is so much more to me than just being skinny or “Hollywood pretty.”
I’ve been trying to focus on other aspects of my appearance. I’ve been trying to style my hair (hard when I spend most days in a bun for work). I’ve been wearing make-up . I’ve been trying to wear stylish clothes – even if pj pants are more comfortable. Sometimes, it’s helpful to focus on the good stuff instead of wallowing in what you think is wrong.
Because chances are, no one else thinks it’s wrong.
