I saw a post from Women at Forty where the author (who I'm assuming is someone in her 40s, but I'll be honest - I located her post in a search for the above graphic) took an honest look at herself - what she is guilty of telling herself that she is NOT, and then what she IS (and those things are harder to tell yourself - why is that?)
What I am guilty of telling myself that I'm NOT:
great at balance
a daily exerciser
a perfect workout picture on Pinterest (and will never be!)
What I AM (and need to do a better job of remembering):
loved by many
a woman with faith in herself, her loved ones, and the world
a FABulous self-stylist
one who tries to be better every day
one who appreciates beauty in
sassy when needed
a good listener
a great talker!
I think I'll make myself a deal - when I'm feeling bummed about the things that I'm NOT, I will pull out the list of things that I AM... and read them over and over again until I'm dne with my pity party! Sound like a plan?
