I am more beautiful than I think.


I was talking to a friend and he was commenting on how pretty I am. Not just pretty, but amazingly beautiful with model-like features. After I stopped laughing I said thank you and told him that I wish I saw what he saw. Yes, I can see beauty in myself and have grown over the years to love even the flaws, but sometimes all you can focus on are the flaws. That gets in the way of your overall perception of yourself.

After our conversation he sent me this Dove video and said that I reminded him of it. Its so powerful and so very true. We can be so critical of ourselves and others don't see half of what we see. I think this holds true for men and women. I'm going to work on speaking more positively about myself AND looking more for the good in others and focus less on the bad.

I also want to be mindful that people around me feed off my energy. If I wear my happiness, it looks better than if I put on down in the dumps. Today I'm feeling so blah, but no one else needs to know that. Anyone coming in my office today would think I was on top of the world. No point in making the ugliness show on the outside.

    We are all made in the image and likeness of God. We are all beautiful creatures. You must first learn to love and respect yourself, flaws and all, before you can expect someone else to love you like you so righteously deserve to be loved. Accept the real you. There is no perfect man, woman or being except the Lord almighty and you are a beautiful image of our heavenly Father.

  3. I'll tell you what's beautiful... you going to the gym. I'll also tell you what's powerful and true... if you are trying to drop the rest of the lbs. you are trying to drop you need to put the work in and stop taking days off.
    Besides that you are Georgeous, I won't be able to use that too many more times. Givensous doesn't quite work the same.
