"Having a positive body image is directly connected to your overall happiness.
Love yourself no matter what stage of life you are in, size or shape you are.
Don’t think if you were younger, thinner, etc you would receive more love.
What you look like is not what people love you for, they love you for your heart & how you treat them.
And your LOVE for YOURSELF will shine in your eyes & your happiness will make you GLOW. ~ Namaste ♥ Anna" (on a poster)
I have got to remember this as I know I need this. I always think what if? and How come? and I do feel inadequate at times. Then there are the other times that people just seem to love me and I have idea how or why. I don't do anything different than what I am but I get " we miss you" and "what are you doing now" "where are you working" from people that I used to help at the stores when I run into them at different places.
Most of the time I do like myself, then of course there are the days and times I don't like anyone! lol But again that goes for everyone I guess.
As a kid I was the shy one, the "fat" one, the one that never got invited to a lot of things. Some of that was because I grew up in a military family (moved a bit) but when you're shy that compounds things and ideas. And kids are cruel......just plain and simple.
I'm still pretty shy until I get to know someone, still don't say much on the threads of the teams I'm on, and most of all I don't do blogs very often. I think my last one was over a year ago...yep sure was, just looked!
Well this is to a new thinking....a new way to look at things....a new way to feel
Hope it sticks!!
