“and being thin won’t make you stop hating your body”
I lost a good friend on the grounds of that quote….because she could not, to the root of her soul, hear me when I tried to tell her that. She placed her entire sense of self worth and happiness on a mythical number of pounds to lose, and then…..poof!! Suddenly she would find herself happy and content and right with the universe.
But lo and behold…..there is no magic number that makes you suddenly love yourself folks….that’s an internal job and a task for each of us to succeed or fail regardless of what the scale says.
Scrolling through my dash the photograph made me stop and look.
Then i read both comments and decided to reblog.
Who told you that you weren’t good enough, beautiful enough, sexy enough, valuable enough, smart enough, because you didn’t fit their perception of those things? Who?
When my daughter was around 7 years old she came up to me one day and said “mommy, grandma keeps telling me that I am beautiful inside and out. What does that mean?” i remember distinctly that i smiled because that was my mom, and i explained to my beloved daughter who may very well one day suffer from another person’s perception, this truth.
“Grandma wants you to know that your whole being is beautiful. Beauty isn’t about how a person looks on the outside, it’s about that entire person. Are they mean, do they say not nice things and make other people feel bad or small? If their spirit and their behavior is ugly it doesn’t matter what they look like baby.” She was satisfied with that answer.
We all teach our children this very thing in many different ways and then we send them out into a world that shows them the exact opposite.
i wonder why that is…
Thank you mom for showing me from the moment i can remember that i was beautiful inside and outside. And thank you for making me believe it.
Monday morning Boost for the day, week, month and the rest of your life. Whether you’re a man or a women life has and is unfortunately a comparison. Be beautiful on the inside 1st… a grow from there.
The beauty of tumblr is we get to see the beauty of the mind and soul before we see the physical. So much richer and loving experience!
Happy Monday folks.
