Hey Beauty Queens!
Today is the day that all negative thoughts of ourselves ends and we focus on what we think is OUR TRUE BEAUTY!
I feel this is very appropriate for today's post! I mean yesterday was all about what I DON'T like so here we go! Three things that I DO like, about me!
1. My eyes. I have very light blue eyes and never really knew that they were actually "pretty" until I lost weight. I just never wanted to really look at my face. Now I can actually appreciate the beauty in them. I think this came when I had kids. I saw in them, parts of me. Parts I really like. Especially when I look at my son's sweet little face...he has my eyes. :)
2. My height. I love being tall. Maybe it's because I can weigh more than someone that is 5'3! Plus I guess it is easier to wear certain items of clothing, when you are tall. EXCEPT for dresses! OMG! I see all these cute H&O dresses, that I want, but can't wear. I need a dress that is AT LEAST 35 inches. That my friends, is hard to find. But I never have trouble finding designer jeans to fit my length. They all seem to come in a 34 or 36. :) This is also something I see in my beautiful Olivia. She is going to be tall and I always tell her how awesome being tall is! We get to help short little men in the grocery store reach stuff, on the top shelf!
3. My hands. I have very long fingers that are super thin! Ummm...hello, they had me thin! I have my Grandma Mayme's hands. In fact, I have a lot of her amazing traits. She was the most amazing piano player. So those long lanky fingers came in handy. If only I would have stuck with my piano lessons! I wear a size 4 1/2 wedding band. Yep, they are tiny. About the ONLY thing on me, you can call tiny! But...I'll take it!
Ok this post wasn't as hard as I thought. I think that with age, comes acceptance. So for me, being 41 has helped me realize, that I am not so bad! I won't lie, when I look in the mirror, I am still not 100% satisfied with what I see. BUT...that being said, I am also at a place in my life, that I can truly appreciate what beautiful traits I do have! And like I said, seeing "me", in my babies, makes me happy.
