I can love my life!


Thursday, July 25, 2013

As I was driving with the top down today all I could think about was how I looked in my tank top when other drivers could look right in at me...debating whether to throw a loose button down shirt on top, even though it would be so hot. All the sudden I thought, "who cares?" even though I want to get fit and slim down, that doesn't mean I can't enjoy my life along the way.
It was a perfect 80 degrees and partly cloudy and the air felt great on my skin - I let myself just enjoy it and not worry about what other people thought.
When I got home I realized that I can actually love my life, no matter what size I wear or what I eat. I don't have to deny myself the simple pleasures of being out doors in a sleeveless top or going dancing, based on how I look.
Life changing I tell you! Life changing...why didn't this occur to me sooner?

    Alleluia. The oppression of feeling the need to cover up to hide haunts every plus size woman at one time in her life. Low and behold when you do muster up some courage to try something a little risqué you get a look or a comment that sets you back and it needs to stop.

I remember being a teenager and wearing a trench coat on a hot day to be comfortable in my surroundings. My mother pleaded with me to take it off because it looked ridiculous and I wasn't fooling anyone but me.

    That's an AWESOME conclusion and one we all need to come to. If we wait until we're 'perfect' we'll be missing out on so much! Congrats on your epiphany and allowing yourself to enjoy the day! emoticon
