A Person Who feels appreciated will always do more than what is expected. Appreciate & love yourself and you’ll be amazed at what you are capable of!
I’m still stopping to enjoy the other stuff in my life though, watering the garden last night and spotted the first of my purple passiflora flowers, how BeYOUtiful is this;
We also made sure we ate well yesterday, we had salmon, roast vegetables and mixed grains and it was delicious. I’m trying different grains and have to say this was delicious, 7pp in half packet and it had Bulgar Wheat, Quinoa and Lentils in olive oil, they’d already done the hard work and it was tasty. I’ll be buying them now and having a try at cooking my own, now I know they can be made to be tasty.
WOW I’ve just read a really powerful quote, I’ve never watched “My Mad Fat Diary” but I’m just looking on Sky to see if it’s available for download because this is a great quote, very thought provoking;
“I want you to imagine a 10 year old version of yourself sitting right there on this couch. Now this is the little girl who first believed that she was fat and ugly and an embarrassment. I want you to imagine her sitting there right now. Now tell that little girl she’s fat. Tell that little girl she’s ugly. Tell that little girl that’s she’s an embarrassment, worthless, and useless. Because that’s what you do every single day when you say that to yourself.” My Mad Fat Diary quote
WOW, now if that doesn’t make you think, nothing will! I’m hoping you couldn’t do that, that you wouldn’t even dream of saying such a horrid thing to a child, to anyone really, I’m guessing some of you reading this are guilty of talking to yourself that way though and that makes me sad, it makes my heart sink because I’ve done it. Not anymore, now I see the BeYOUtiful in everyone including myself. We’re all gorgeous, we’re all amazing, original one offs who become absolutely incredible when we realise that and embrace our true selves xx
What would you like to say to that 10 year old version of yourself? If she/he said that she felt that way about herself, what would you tell her? Or if you were to offer them some advice about the future what would it be?
I’d tell mine to not be afraid to be herself, that it’s okay to be different, to not want to ‘fit in’ and be like all the other girls in her class because one day being different will be the thing that makes a difference to her life! I’d add that what she weighs shouldn’t be an issue as long as she focuses on being healthy xx
Yep off the top of my head, that’d be what I’d say, STOP think quickly now what would you say, don’t put too much thought into it, because then you’ll say what you really think and not what you think you should say!
Right that’s me, a couple of minutes of deep is enough at this time of the morning isn’t it ;-) xx
Have an amazing day BeYOUtiful, you know you’re worth it.
