Same Body, Second Glance: Day Twenty-Six

July 26, 2014


Today my husband and I spent the day wandering around our local art museum, looking at plenty of fabulous textures and lines.  But you know what?  Today I have the courage to believe that I am a pretty magnificent work of art myself — imperfections, asymmetry, dark circles and all.  And believing that doesn’t mean I’m vain or self-absorbed.  It means I am compassionate and loving to myself.  It means I have the experience necessary to be compassionate and loving to others, too.  It means I am creative, wide-eyed in my search for beauty, and hopeful in the face of insecurity…

It’s good. ❤


{{Wondering what’s going on here??  Almost a year ago, I found myself on bad terms with the person in the mirror.  So I made a commitment:  every day for forty days, I’d take *one* photograph of my body that I could honestly see as beautiful.  Want to follow my journey?  Start here.}}
