This is NOT good! I found, like it's mentioned in the video, that it began to affect relationships around me. Isn't that weird? Me feeling bad about me reflected off of me and made things worse for those who love me?
A few years back a lady showed up on a team at FS that I found myself really admiring. She was just beautiful and I enjoyed being around her. Since I couldn't remember all of the names in her group I thought of her as, "That really cute lady."
A couple of days later I realized something. When I picked her features apart she was really pretty average. She was near my age, a little chubby, and not supermodel material at all. But the essence of who she was that radiated out of her was just stunning. THAT'S what people saw.
It taught me a lot about what I truly wanted to be. As my mom has always said, "Beautiful from the inside out."
So if you haven't seen the video-----watch it! If you have, watch it again and be reminded that you are beautiful from the inside out. That there is only one and only YOU.......!
And let your light shine!!!
