Who are you to not love yourself?
We all get into body shaming at some point in our lives. I am no different. But I had a light bulb moment the other day. I am in the process of de-cluttering. As I was going through my hope chest, I found a photo of me at 25, the prime of my physically active life and before the joy of childbirth. Then I looked in the mirror and saw the reflection of an over 50 year old! I heard my inner roommate commenting on the wrinkles, the sagging skin the graying hair. Then I stopped her! I recalled the thoughts of the 25 year old. It occurred to me that my roommate said similar shaming things to me then too. Now I look back and think that the 25 year old looked pretty dammed good! I wonder when I am 75 if I will look at photos of me at 53 and think I looked pretty dammed good! A lesson in loving yourself now! The beauty is the essence of your inner being. That doesn't change.
