I actually had no intention of writing a post today, and was going to take a 3 day weekend, but then as I was preparing for my morning walk with Hanna a commercial came on that stopped me and had me totally focused on the tv:
(if you can’t view this video in your reader, click on my website and it will play there! Also, it is only 1:00 and has a great message so seriously, watch it now!)
Besides swimming lessons I tried all sorts of different hobbies (although one time I was swimming with my two very thin friends at a rec center and an older woman looked at me while we were in the sauna and told me she was the FAT one out of her friends too. Some people, smh). And like a lot pf those girls I quit a lot of things I found enjoyable because I felt inadequate, and uncomfortable in my own skin.
Being the mother of a little girl I hope I can find the magic answer to helping my daughter feel confidant and beautiful, but until then I will show her by my own actions. Showing her that I’m not afraid to try something new, even if I suck at it. Hold my head high with confidence. I may not be perfect, but I sure do love myself, and that is something that I hope to pass onto Hanna.
Have a great weekend everyone!
