The Girl In The Mirror Smiled Back

Friday, March 15, 2013

Today I looked in the mirror and I was able to smile at myself without being sad.

You see I look so much like my Mom its very hard for me to look in the mirror sometimes because it hurts.

I'm really proud of myself for the mirror thing. it's very hard for me but it means im getting stronger and that is a good thing.
the self nurturing thing i did for myself today was I painted my nails.
called slimer green. its crazy funky and i love it.
I also got a lot of cleaning done, laundry and etc.
i love spring cleaning and I intend to spend the whole weekend airing the house out and doing more cleaning...Yaaaay

    Improvement is always a good thing. I lost my bio mom when I was a kid, but my adopted mom saved me a picture of my bio mom. She told me I looked just liked her and she would be proud of me. I keep that picture in my room and it makes me proud and happy and gives me good memories of both moms.

    I hate cleaning, and wish I could pay someone to do mine! I did NOTHING work wise, and just spent the whole day playing and talking with my son.

    I know what you mean--I lost my mother last June. I am not the spitting image of my mother, but sometimes I do see her in my face when I look in the mirror. She battled obesity her whole life--and lost. I miss her like crazy. That's why I keep on fighting to lose the weight. The last thing she would want me to do is join her. I commend you for making progress with your grief. Next time you look in the mirror, remember something silly or funny, some inside joke you two had--that way, when you see her in your reflection, you'll be sharing a laugh together.
