You Are Beautiful // My Love List

I'm going to be honest with you today. I'm honest all days, don't worry, but today let's get a little deep. When I look in the mirror I am so quick to point out my imperfections. When people compliment me, all I think about is the parts that aren't so great. I am hard on myself, and it's pretty sad.

I don't say this get any attention or for you to pay me compliments. I say it because I want to make a change. I want to look in the mirror and love what I see. There's a lot of things I love about myself, underneath all the things I pick apart I really do embrace the woman I am.

I feel that too many women don't support other women. Hey, we are all in this together, we should be showing each other love. Instead of criticizing their hair in a picture someone posts or thinking that they are vain for even posting it in the first place, let's take a step back. 
Please take a moment and think that maybe it took them 12 pictures, 5 minutes of contemplating, and a heck of a lot of self-esteem to post that picture at all. 
Let's hit that heart button, click the thumbs up, and support our fellow women. We don't know what the other person behind that cell phone or computer screen is dealing with. Show the love, and spread it!

I encourage each one of you to look in the mirror, at least once a day and pick out something that you love about yourself. Own it, love it, and believe it. You Are Beautiful.

My Love List :
My eyes- they are bright green, and sometimes change colors of green. I love them.
My nose- I don't know why, but I think it's the perfect shape.
My toes- I love them because my mom's were the exact same, little and kind of chubby. Perfect piggies, ha.
My sense of giving- I would give a friend the last dollar I owned. I love showering people with gifts, because it makes me happy. I really enjoy making people smile.
My determination- when I set my mind to something, you better believe I'm going to do it. I pride myself on being a hard worker. I don't slack, and I love to give 110% and master everything I do.


See...that wasn't so hard. Now it's your turn.

Tell me one thing you love about yourself, it would make my day to learn more about my beautiful readers!

  4. I love the "sense of giving" I think that's such a special characteristic. I'm really bad about taking compliments too!

  5. I am very self-critical and quick to point out my flaws instead of my positives. It's a horrible habit that I know I have. My mom made a good point that really changed how I would think about that "Would you say any of that to your best friend?" OF COURSE NOT. That was really staggering to me and now I always think that when I start to get overly critical. That's when it's good to think about what I love about myself.
