B is for Beautiful!

Friday, August 23, 2013

1. Having qualities that delight the senses, especially the sense of sight.

2. Excellent; wonderful.
From the Online Free Dictionary

Beautiful... We must love ourselves to be successful. Beauty is more than just looks. I think people who are positive and feel good about themselves have an inner beauty that shines through.

Just yesterday I had a conversation with a client. Her name was Linda. I asked her if she knew the meaning of the word, "Linda", and she said yes, it means "beautiful one." Of course, my name is also Linda, and I told her right, I also said, if you believe you are beautiful, it will shine through. She had a little chuckle of that, but was not convinced that it pertained to her.

Now, back to my head! In my mind, I believe it. I believe I am a beautiful person, but still when I look in the mirror, I don't feel it. My husband tells me I'm beautiful, and he is sincere. I need to believe it all the time. Why is it helpful? I will still have the same features, even if I lose a lot of weight. I will still have the same feelings and emotions, after a weight loss too. I will always be who I am on the inside and it does not matter what I look like on the out side. Do I love myself? I think so, rephrased... I do! I am beautiful!

I'm the one in the middle!

I am the one on the right. The other two are my twin sisters! I think we were so cute back then!

This pic was taken a few years ago. And of course the picture on my last blog entry is my most recent.

    Yep, Nat!
    It is an A-Z blog for me. I can't take credit for the idea though. I have a spark friend who I stole the idea from! She lost 70ish pounds, so she is a great example to me! Have a great week!

    Beautiful inside and out, Linda. Usted es Linda... (linda is the Spanish word for pretty, or beautiful, if I remember my high school class work...) I have three sisters and a brother, by the way, and I think somewhere I have photos from the same era... and yes, the sisters photo is so adorable!

    May that beauty be visible to YOU, in your mirror as you remind yourself that you are indeed, a beautiful woman.

    All told, there are six of us. All girls, and all within 6 years. Yes, my parents certainly had their hands full! Thanks for the kind comment!

    LOL I bet your parents had their hands full.

    You are beautiful inside and out. Keep saying it 'till you believe it.

    One of the hardest things to get in our minds. I really have not done it yet.
