I'm beautiful now, but I want to be better
Wednesday, January 11, 2012
I read a year or so ago about a lady who had a long journey of weightloss. She did it slowly and successfully, but there was one particular thing that really stuck with me. I cannot quote it, but basically she said, 'Take a before picture - but make it a good one. Get dressed up like you're going out for a night on the town. She said 'do your hair and makeup'. She also said that 'you are beautiful NOW because God made you! You are of value NOW and even though you want to be better you have to love who you are NOW first.'
I thought that was really good advice to take a before picture when you are the best you can be now. She also said that she didn't like the type of "shows" where they had you remove your makeup, your hair was flat and you look unhappy. We need to believe that we are worth it! So, I'm beautiful now, but I want to be oh so much better AND healthier! Life is precious!!
