I know I know its sounds horrible, especially when I tell you it was my boyfriend who said it. But he said trying to tell me that he dose not care what I look like. He is happy with my body and he thinks that I am beautiful, even if I don't.
His statement makes me wonder, what if we could all see ourselves through that special someone's eyes? And I don't just mean your life partner, it could be your best friend, your mom or dad, it doesn't matter who just that one special person is. Just try and see yourself through their eyes
Do they see those extra pounds hanging our waists? that cursed double chin that keeps appearing in pictures? Do they see how we fuss and fidget with our clothing that we wish was not as tight (ok maybe they see that, but you get my point) and the answer is NO!
They see laughing green eyes, a bright smile, an amazing personality, someone who is able and willing to try and enjoy life to the fullest. They see laugh lines not winkles, they see their friend, or lover when they look at us. They smile when they see us, they pick up random little gifts just say thanks, or treat us to tea and chat at the local coffee shop.
They see the extra things that you do for them whether its hanging down at barn all morning helping with the horses and then being sent on the coffee run, when the fun really starts. They see the weekly date or hang out time at the local hockey game on Friday nights when you join them and some of their friends and get picked on and have random people give your pony tale a tug or the tea you bring to their older friend, just so you can that little hug from them. Its the meals you cook for them and bring over just to share, or grabbing the broom and sweeping the floor that makes you that special to them.
Its all about your warm bright personality, which caused this person to have more then just a passing glance at you, not just the physical shell that the soul is currently housed in. If we could see ourselves through those eyes, ask your self would you be happier?
