All I need...

Thursday, July 14, 2011

I have really been struggling with my self image lately, well for the past 30 years or so. My husband is always telling me I'm beautiful, but then I think that's his job, that's what he's supposed to say. I am always telling him not to poke my back fat (he denies that I have any) or that he's pinching my fat rolls (once again he tells me that I don't have any), but I know they are there. I think this morning for the first time ever I really, truly realized that love is blind. You see, Jeff had already left for work, I do remember him kissing me before he left, and I got out of bed about an hour later. I sat up in bed and was greeted by my reflection. UGH! It really wasn't a pretty sight, flat on one side and just wild and crazy on the other with little swirls here and there. I tried to mash down the wild and crazy side and fluff up the flat side, but nothing really worked except for making more tangles in my hair. I walked out to the kitchen and noticed that I had a message on my phone. It was from Jeff and it read "you looked very beautiful while sleeping this morning". I realized that he sees me and loves me for me, no matter what I may look like, even first thing in the morning. He is all I need to help me believe in me. I really do love that man.

    I don't even look into the mirror first thing in the morning... it isn't worth it. Just remember that we all look like that, so mankind invented hairbrushes, and the people who love you know you as perfect inside!

    Also, could you tell me where to find a man like that??? emoticon
