Got back from Copenhagen, and I swear there’s something in that “typically Danish” rye bread that can just go straight to a sister’s thighs! Either that, or the falafel and shawarma (med chili) that got a sisters hips fillin out with some dangerous curves! lol. Like in the US, the cheapest things to eat in Denmark are often not the healthiest options :(
Still, looking in the mirror, I love myself. I love the fact that I have thighs and legs and lovely proportions. And I love seeing myself this way. Yes, take care of yourself, be mindful of your health, exercise and do what makes YOU feel good in life, but also remember that you’re beautiful.
Life experience has taught me that it’s really hard to improve yourself without loving yourself first. Have compassion and when you look in the mirror, appreciate and validate the person that you see. You can’t expect others to do this for you—be your own best friend and lead by example. Yes we all have ups and downs, we have flaws and strengths, etc. That’s what makes us beautifully human.
In Japanese tradition, it’s often the little flaw in a piece of art that makes it special. The beauty lies not in perfection but in imperfection-in the challenge to be unique… the challenge to BEyou-tiful.
1 luv to all my RAPtivists out there—
