Shoulda Knocked On Wood!!



Last week I was feeling a bit down, ya know "I'm so fat! I'm so dumb! I have gray hairs! I'm so ugly!, all the things you tell your self when you feel less than peppy! Well after a late night talk with my wonderful husband, who spent the entire conversation reassuring me that he loved me and that he would never leave me for some hot little number named Shirley with perky boobs and a flat stomach. Before I went to bed I thought I would stand before the mirror and make myself find at least one thing that didn't suck about me, it took me a couple of times going in and out of the bathroom to remember why I was staring at my self, and then I thought "I like my skin."

Well the universe has a funny sense of humor because the next morning I woke up with a GIANT RED ZIT in the dead center of my forehead!!!!! I surrender, you win!!!! lol (p.s. I am feeling better this week, I am not any thinner but I have found that if I just wear yoga pants all the time I don't notice as much tee hee hee)

I feel this way a lot. It's SATAN that wants you to feel like crap. Send him packin'! Kick him to the curb! Look in that mirror and prove Ole Scratch wrong! You're beautiful.

Girl.....I have days like that more often than I care to admit(usually at certain special times of the month). Thanks for reassuring me that I'm not alone. By the way - I like your skin too:-)

Yes, you do have beautiful skin and about 100 other beautiful things. Your smile, your cute freckles, your thick long hair......and those are only some of the physical.
I think we all have a hard time seeing the beautiful things about ourselves. Tom is always telling me that he's baffled that I view myself how I do.
And "Shirley"?! Ha ha! Love the name choice.
