Celebrate you

Saturday, November 10, 2012

It is about 8:00 p.m. I know that I should be doing laundry but I decided to do something else. I am happy to say that I just spent $37 dollars on another manicure. It feels good to just appreciate myself for where I am at now. I love the whole idea of me losing weight (I have even found a Curves close by today. ) but I say love the skin you are in. Go ahead and love yourself. Buy that new lip gloss or earrings. The more you treasure yourself the more likely you will want to try to be your best self. I want a total make over now and when I decide to get the pounds off it will not be foreign to me to take care of myself. Yes, I have a lot bills. And no, being good to yourself is not cheap. I want to love myself as I am and that kind of confidence is attractive. I am glad to be a black woman as well because our standard of beauty is different. There are a lot of bigger and healthier black women who simply look marvelous. I want to be one of them right now. Later, I will try to lose weight keeping in mind that my weight is just a reduction in size but not in self-worth. I am valuable at any size. I am a child of the King.

    Nice post! I, too, treated myself to a manicure yesterday.
    And I agree with you 100% about the larger black women looking marvelous.
    Fortunate for me, I am a large white woman who "cleans up well" when I put forth the effort.

    Keep up that positive attitude beautifully and within time this could be us. emoticon
