Inside and Out!

Oh the joys of computer issues! Makes blogging come to a hault, although I didn't get my blogging time in this weekend, I did have a great weekend!
 (you'd think my new laptop wouldn't have issues after 2 months)
Back to the pen and paper of the good ol' days!

  . . . . . . . .

Have you ever looked in the mirror and thought, I wish you looked different?! 
I wish I had straighter hair...
I wish I had a better smile...
I wish I had straight teeth...
I wish I had less curves...
I wish I had higher cheek bones...
I wish my forehead wasn't so big...
 I wish my nose looked different...

?

I am pretty sure I am guilty of many of those!

As women, we are TOO HARSH on ourselves. We often times judge ourselves more than we judge others. {we.shouldn't.do.either} We don't view ourselves as the beautiful people that God made us. We look for the flaws, more than the good. We often expect ourselves to be and look perfect. {there.is.no.perfect!}

I was watching this THIS video that my friend sent me the other day and it really hit me. I might wake up and look in the mirror and from day to day, not always like what I see...BUT I am beautiful! If we all looked the same, it would be a boring world! Just think if Picasso made all the same paintings and everywhere you looked, there was the same painting. OR God only made the world in one color, so everything you looked at was red. OR There was only one song that was played over and over and over on the radio, so that is all you heard every day.

This would be one boring world!

Change is good! Everyone is different and that what makes everyone unique!

Lets be less harsh on ourselves and more complimentive! Lets give ourselves a few more 'pats on the back,' a few more smiles, instead of frowns, a couple more 'attaboys' instead of insults, less judging and more 'rewarding.'

Let's all face it, no one is perfect and you are made the way you are for a reason! 
Life is too short to take time to judge yourself...live it out and live it proud of who you are!

Yes! It's so true. We are so hard on ourselves, when we should be thanking God for making us healthy and for creating us as amazing women!
