White Tanks and Blue Jeans

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

Lately I have gotten into the habit of leaving the blinds open to my second-story dorm room. I'm in the back of the dorm which faces the woods, so it's really no big deal. But I've gotten into this habit, because honestly, I love looking at myself in it! I don't have a mirror in my room, so the window's the closest thing I've got. But I was getting ready for dinner, pulling on my jeans (which are getting a bit large for me now, btw), and looked in the window and just admired myself for a while. The best part: my shirt was white! The color white always made me look so much bigger than I really was. To see myself look good in a white tank and jeans... needless to say was a fantastic feeling! My hair still could've used a little work, but when you've got split ends and no one will give ya a free haircut... ha ha!

Ever since I've begun this journey, it has been a process for me. I've started learning how to appreciate myself again. I know this journey is far from over, but I could not be more thankful for it. Be on the lookout! New picture to come soon!!


"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ~Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
