Ok, friends. This is a serious one. We’re going to have a heart to heart. You up for that on a Sunday morning? Watch this video first.
I love the poem shared at the end. Chills.
We’re fighting fat talk. How about encouraging beautiful talk? Have you told yourself that you’re beautiful? When do you feel beautiful? Find out. Explore it. Write it down, say it out loud, repeat it, repeat it, repeat it and don’t forget it. Sing it until it sticks.
I’ll do it first then you do it. It’s not easy for me. I am a “maximizer”. I like to take something and make it better. So, when I look at myself, sometimes I think, “How can this be better?” I promised you and promised me that I wouldn’t say I had imperfections and flaws any more. I have promised to fight fat talk. But, now, I feel like we should also promise to start “I Am Beautiful talk.” So here it goes.
I feel beautiful when my young boys tell me I look pretty, smile and touch my hair.
I feel beautiful when I catch my husband staring at me while I’m getting ready and when I meet his eyes, he smiles with adoration.
I feel beautiful after I dress up, walk into a room with my boys and they whistle, say “whoa!” and “wow!”.
I feel beautiful when my toes are painted.
I feel beautiful after I get my hair done.
I feel beautiful when I take care of me…my heart, my soul, my body.
I feel beautiful when I take care of my family and my friends.
I feel beautiful when I smile and laugh and spill with joy.
I am beautiful…with stretch marks, cellulite, pimples, scars, extra fat…my body has been the home to 4 beautiful children. My body has performed a miracle four times.
I am beautiful.
