When I looked in a mirror, I used to always see a pretty plain, normal looking person, but I'm beautiful too. The older I get, the more comfortable I feel. There are features that have been passed down to me from my parents, my aunts, my grandmothers and their mothers. My hair, my figure, my loud voice. I am grateful for those things that make me unique.
I have no idea how to wear makeup and I struggle with hair that isn't a top knot, but I own it and feel comfortable. I love when my hair looks more red than blond. I love the way that my hair air dries with natural waves. I love the color of my eyes which is best described as hazel.
I finally embrace the fact that I will need glasses/contacts forever. I love that I get freckles on my shoulders & arms. My finger nails grow really fast and really strong and so does my hair (and no, I'm not taking prenatal vitamins.) I have really long toes (fingers if you will) and I love them.
Embrace it all. You are who you are and as soon as you love that person, you will find yourself in a happier and easier place. Be your own kind of amazing - you know, like my shirt says.
Happy Monday. Love yourself, love your week and go love some other people. I'm heading home from Nashville today so I'm probably pouting a little bit, but I'll get over it. Also, watch this video, because it is beautiful and these women are amazing.
