Fall Down Seven Times, Get Up Eight

"If you're trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it." ~ Michael Jordan

"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why ...

I wrote the following piece on 1/8/08 in honor of all my SP friends. I have been so inspired by your determination, diligence, and kindness. Regardless of the various stages we are on our journey of good health, I'd like to let my friends know that your inner beauty is shining through our virtual connection on SP.

I AM BEAUTIFUL

My eyes are beautiful not because they are bright and perfectly shaped.
They are beautiful because I see the beauty of the world God has created.

My lips are beautiful not because they are full and luscious.
They are beautiful because they offer words of comfort to those who are down.

My bosom is beautiful not because it fits the ideals of Hollywood.
It is beautiful because inside beats a heart that loves and forgives unconditionally.

My hands are beautiful not because they are soft and manicured.
They are beautiful because they reach out to those in need.

My torso is beautiful not because it is flat and toned.
It is beautiful because it carried a precious baby from conception to birth.

My legs are beautiful not because they are shapely and tanned.
They are beautiful because I dance to the beat of my own drum.

In spite of my tired eyes, thin lips, sagging bosom, rough hands, flabby torso, and pasty legs...
I am beautiful!
