Happy Hump Day all!
Last night while scrolling through Facebook, my friend Shondrika posted this Huffington Post article 23 Things Every Woman Should Stop Doing on her page. Usually when people post articles I tend to scroll past them but this one piqued my curiosity so I read it. This article was so timely and spoke to me on many levels. I can honestly say I’m guilty of doing 80% of the things on this list. I know I can be my own worst critic, especially when it comes to past mistakes and missteps. Instead of focusing on forgiving myself I get caught up in “should’ve, could’ve, would’ve”. I realize that kind of thinking only serves to minimize how far Ive come and stops me from being good to myself.
Despite my flaws, I still have love for myself. It’s easy to make a laundry list of things we don’t like about ourselves but it’s difficult to acknowledge the wonderful people we are.
1. My Smile: I have a big, beautiful smile. I love how it instantly brightens my face.
2. My Shape: While I’m not crazy about the number on the scale, I don’t have a problem with my voluptuous shape. I think I’m perfectly proportioned and wouldn’t have it any other way.
3. My Relationship With My Nephew, Frederick: My nephew is my hero. Frederick has overcome so many obstacles in his life to transform himself into an awesome adult. He is truly one of my favorite people in the world.
5. My Passion For Travel: I love visiting other countries and learning about their culture and people. My mom instilled the love of travel in me when I was a teen. My goal is to visit every continent on this planet. Ive got three down…four to go!
What do you love about yourself?
Have a wonderful day!
