Do it anyway xoxo

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”

Mother Teresa

Mirror, mirror on the wall xoxo

Feeling uncomfortable in my own body was a nightmare. I had suddenly ballooned and I did not know what to do!!

I had lost control and felt as if I were walking around inside a stranger's body; nothing seemed to fit and my stomach was showing through my clothes!!! (Insert hand over face) I ran (let me tell the truth... lol...I walked to the bus stop and got the bus a few stops to the west end). 

...Hunting for control pants as if they were my lifeline, I found a good fit! Thank God I thought... They worked...

Control pants were not the answer, yes they covered up what I did not want to see but they did not deal with the issue. As time went on they began to hide a little less and I had to make the decision to change, the decision to be the best me I could be and hiding wasn’t the answer.

My first step was to get my mind to think long term, what were the consequences of overeating, I then had to take a good look at myself, strip out of my clothes and look at the direction my body was taking once I had done these I had to acknowledge the consequences all this had on my emotions, self esteem and self worth. It was a lot to take in but I had to force myself to do it. Doing this encouraged me to make better decisions for me, my health, body and self esteem.

Big, medium or small, boy or girl, black, white, or asain, 18, 21 or 41 if you're someone who is blasé about your health, I encourage you to take it seriously, speak to a family member or a doctor if you have any concerns because it could mean life or death. xoxo

The beauty of a woman by Audrey Hepburn xoxo

"The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows and the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years."
