We all have things we would like to change about our bodies, but what it comes down to is that we are all beautiful despite those things we would like to change. We are beautiful to someone, our mothers, significant others, friends, most importantly to God. God doesn't care if you have a little muffin top, or bat wing. God only sees the beauty that is within.
I have been working hard to lose weight and be happy in my own skin, and even though I get told I am beautiful and that I look good, I need to believe it. It is a constant struggle I have had since middle school. I didn't always have people in my life telling me the good parts, they just pointed out the bad. I finally have someone in my life to helps me overcome my negative thoughts and I am actually starting to believe it!
I am not as brave as Kim, you are not going to be seeing my in my bathing suit (sorry) but I am going to show you one of my most embarrassing and most self conscious about parts. My feet.
I know, how silly of me to fret about my feet. But they are gross. They are dry and cracked and no amount of lotion seems to help that. If I could afford a weekly pedicure then I could possibly save them from the damage of daily running, but I can't. My 2nd and 3rd toes are a little webbed. They are just not cute like some people's feet (or even like they used to be)
The things is even though I don't like my feet, I am thankful I have 2 feet to allow me to run. Running is my new passion, a passion that I have have been slowing starting to really enjoy, but a passion none the less. I really enjoy how I feel after a good run. I am thankful that my feet and legs work and allow me to play with the twins. I could never keep up with them without them. My feet have taken me many amazing places, and I know they will take me many more. My little webbed toes even make me different from the average person, and I match my momma! So even though they need a little TLC, they are beautiful. (but someone please tell Matt that :-D )
Today, all day, celebrate yourself. No negative thoughts about yourself. Only thoughts about how beautiful you are! Because you are, and don't let anyone tell you differently.
