But I can still breathe....

Monday, July 11, 2011

While my perspectives on many levels including life and faith and family and friends has changed I find my self perception has not. It still amazes me to try on a size 8 and have it fit or feel a little loose. Or to find that a favorite piece of clothing does not look. Sometimes it looks like I am a little kid playing dress up. So why do I only see the fat self in the mirror? Maybe because I am still working out those changes.

Michael (my oldest nephew and is only 6 years younger than me) made me laugh at myself I realize how silly I am being. One day he was complaining about life and his job and lack of love and a host of other things. My retort was at least you can breath. I will never have tooth pick skinny legs due to years of dance and family genetics but I can still breathe. My stomach will never be flat due to a large scar but I can still breathe.

My mantra is But I can still breathe. Things will never be perfect but my attitude will shape my perspective and even perception. So breathe.

    Look in the mirror and say to yourself hundreds of time during the day. I approve of myself. Say it in the shower. in the kitchen anywhere. Do some pirouhettes in front of the mirror and say I look good. You have worked hard for this and now reaps the rewards.

    Yes you can breathe and yes you have the right to look fantastic. Years of negatives do not disappear in amoment but you are such a positive determined and committed person that you will overcome this hurdle. You inspire me that is for sure.
