You are Beautiful…Part 10

Aviary Photo_130712803099340412I definitely enjoyed writing this 10 part series blog on “You are Beautiful”.  I hope that you were inspired just a little bit or at least took away “a little food for thought”.  I have to say for myself, just writing these blogs truly inspired me to look at myself a little differently through the mirror.  So for this last blog entry of “You are Beautiful”, I have chosen to write the message to myself.  It is definitely true when they say writing is the best therapy, because each time I incorporated a little part of myself into the blogs, the more I realized that I needed to take some of my own advice.  You ever had a friend that gives the best advice you’ve ever heard, yet they don’t take their own advice?  Well… that’s me!  I don’t always practice what I preach…

Why do I think I need to be a particular weight to be perfect?  Every morning I am on that scale weighing myself.  I am completely devoted to my Fitbit… although my new black band has now given me a bad rash around my wrist.  Instead of waiting for my replacement blue band to arrive (sidebar:  I’m not allergic to the blue band), I’m still wearing the Fitbit because I don’t want to distract my fitness regime.  Ok enough of that… onto the next issue.  Why do I think I need to have washboard abs?   And lastly, why do I always feel guilty when I eat a meal that I consider to be not so healthy or indulge in a decadent dessert?

As I now look in the mirror, I realize that I am beautiful just the way I am.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with me. I have to tell myself, “it’s ok that you don’t have abs of steel.  You have fibroids and endometriosis.  It’s really ok to enjoy a meal or decadent dessert once in a blue moon.  And for goodness sake, girl take that Fitbit band off of your wrist until your replacement arrives.”

I 100% believe that every one of us should definitely take pride in the way we look and the way we feel.  The problem is that some of us go overboard.  I am one… correction…I was one of those people.  As I look in the mirror one last time for the night, I see a woman that is embracing all that is beautiful about her body… flaws and all!

Goodnight all!  I will talk to you soon 💋
