Do you ever look at yourself in the mirror and think, "Hello, gorgeous!" Do you zero in on your favourite features and smile winningly at yourself? And then do you head out into the world, full of confidence at how beautiful and fantastic you are? I wish I did. But honestly, most of the time I don't. I don't think many of us do. We are too quick to focus on all the little "imperfections" that we see. I look in the mirror and I see the laugh lines around my mouth and eyes. The ten pounds I just don't seem to have the will-power to lose. And they're pretty much all I can think about. Isn't that sad? Where did we get the idea that we need to look perfect? And how can we shake it off? I guess we can start by focusing on the things that make us beautiful, outside and in. I'll go first and you follow in the comments, okay?
I like my green eyes. I like my freckles. I like my smile.
I am funny. I am kind. I am thoughtful.
I may not be perfect. But parts of me really are pretty awesome.
