I've been trying to figure out what my first blog should be about and since I've seen a lot of postings lately about feeling good about yourself - bathing suit weather is coming - I thought I'd lend my thoughts on that. So many of us chat on to ourselves with negative self-talk about what's wrong with our bodies. Sometimes very long, detrimental conversations.
How about transforming the way you think about it? Our true selves are not what we see on the outside, but who we are on the inside - what we value, who we love, what we do for others and ourselves, how we treat children and animals.
Our exterior, the wrapping, is just that! Think about getting a present. Unless we are a toddler, who generally is more interested in the wrapping, we rip the paper off and discard it to get to the gift. We rejoice over the gift, we give thanks to the giver, we cherish it. How about doing that with yourself?
You are a gift, be grateful for you.
Live and sparkle,
