Today my 23 year old sister came home from Colorado to visit for a couple weeks and today was dedicated as our day to spend together. First we just hung out and watched TV, then we went shopping at the mall, out to eat and came home for me to head off to work. The challenging part was that I spent the entire time staring at her physique in utter jealousy. I was envious of her thin legs and the way shorts were too big because (unlike me) she wasn't packing a lot of junk in the trunk. Because of this, I hated the way I looked in absolutely every outfit I tried on.

Then as we were sitting at lunch together and talking about how we both wished we would have worked out, it was revealed that as I was ogling over her thin legs, she was envying my smaller build and flat stomach.

We spend so much time comparing our bodies to those of the people around us, that we never stop to appreciate the positive qualities we do have. Yes, I do have chunky thighs and a big butt, but I need to remind myself that there are positives about the way I look. And sometimes, that girl we are staring at in jealousy, is staring back at us for the same reason.
