The Path to Appreciating What you See and Feel [10/31/15]

So, I’m not skinny; I have big hips and a gut.  I don’t have straight teeth.  My complexion is anything but flawless.  I have a little acne and my hair is crazy curly and sometimes frizzy.  Yet it’s okay.  It’s taken me my whole life just to be okay with my self-image.  Self-image is in my hands and in the hands of no one else.  For a long time I thought all the things I listed above were major flaws, major things that made me unattractive.   They are not! If you put all of those things together, then you get me!

I remember being six years old and hating the depth of my voice.  I hated listening to myself speak in fear that people would wonder why my voice is so deep.  I would ask my mother “ma, why do I sound like a man?”  I laugh at this now because it’s one of the things I love about myself.  My voice and its depth is why I’m able to sing low alto notes and create the tone I want when performing my spoken word pieces.  My voice is how people understand who I am.  My voice is how people identify me.   I love my voice!

As long as you can appreciate and value every aspect of your character then nothing can penetrate your self-love.  Everything that people might judge, question, or criticize about you is everything that you need to love about yourself.

You are beautiful.  Everything about you is beautiful.
