When you take a beach vacation it means bathing suit time. And this may seem like a no brainer. But if you’ve been overweight if not obese most of your life than it can be stressful. Last year I wore black. This year I went for more color. Why? Well I had some encouragement and I wanted to feel good about me.
I hadn’t planned on displaying pictures of myself in a swimsuit on my blog. Even I am a little wiggy about it.
But I decided this morning that it was important to share with myself and my readers how I look.
It also helps me look at myself.
I need to look at myself.
I need to be VERY aware and honest with myself on how I look.
There was a time recently when I avoided the mirror. I was avoiding myself.
How did I overcome this?
I’m not sure I’m completely out of the woods yet.
What I do know is that I have to keep looking. Sometimes I like what I see. Sometimes I don’t.
I started My Love Thyself Challenge a year ago. I basically started taking pictures of myself everywhere I went.
I started a love affair with myself. I was determined to get to know that girl in the mirror. The one who seemed to avert my every look.
I had also noticed that I was always the one in my family taking pictures and there were none of me. I discussed it with my husband and now he will take the camera and make sure I’m in the pictures too.
But you know, why wait for someone else. Take a picture of yourself.
Be responsible for pursuing your personal relationship with YOU.
These are a few blog posts I wrote during my process of loving myself.
My challenge it’s still going on. I’m much more in love with myself than I was before.
But you need to work on any relationship including the one with yourself.
Do you like you? Have you complimented yourself recently? What’s stopping you?
Have you snapped a picture of yourself lately? Go ahead do it right now.
Keep taking them until you get one you like.
Let me know how it goes.
