Happy Thursday!!!! One Direction anyone?! Fing LOVE that song, so catchy, takes me back to my boy band days ha!
Today I am linking up with some amazing girls Erin, Alicia, and Jodi, seriously each one of them is so great for Celebrate your true beauty!
A few posts ago Jodi posted a true beauty video about how hard women are on themselves and see and describe themselves as much worse than other people that see them. If you haven't seen it go check it out it's absolutely amazing and so true. Made me tear up watching it. No joke.
So the point of this link up is to celebrate our true beauty naming 3 things that we think is beautiful about ourselves. I am challenging myself to come up with 3 outer beauty things because that is most difficult and what the video was all about how people see you without even knowing you.
First off I want to say that I do not think I am pretty by any means. I never have, not at any weight. I am one of those people that if a guy would ever come up to me or anything I immediately close off. I am not open or friendly I get the feeling like, "what do you want?" "why are you talking to me?" I am not flattered. I think its because they want something or are trying to make fun of me to "just be nice." I don't know why I am like that but it never crosses my mind that anyone would actually find me attractive, strangers anyway. I'm talking about strangers coming up and just randomly talking to you. When I am out wiht my friends I always let them lead conversations because I know guys would rather be with them then me (in my single days of course.)
Isn't that awful?? I don't know why I think like that. Maybe becasue I have never felt good enough. Maybe because I got made fun of when I was younger, I had HORRENDOUS teeth. Who knows but I am so glad the girls made this link up. As I am getting older I am finding myself becoming more and more ok with myself. Finding the beauty in all things, even the little things. As an adult its easier to become at peace with yourself and I am definitely on that journey, a little more everyday.
Ok, now that my rant is over lets get to the three things I find beautiful about myself. with a little humor added of course..ugh here we go...
1.) My hair. I really like that I have blonde hair. I love the dark and light high lights. I like that its thick. That I can wear it straight or curly. That it holds curls with a curling iron really well and generally lays pretty nice, with the right humidity of course ;)
2.) My eyes. They're green. They're big, but not too big. I feel like they stand out, are a pretty color but not sunken in or anything and a nice shape. Not that you can tell in a black/white pic but whatevs it was the only close up I could find lol
3.) Last but not least, my butt. I am definitely hour glassed and a little pear shaped. I am definitely bigger on bottom and I've always gotten compliments on my butt haha. I think it has a nice shape and looks good in some jeans lol. And as always gotta have a pic with that! (side note: pic is WAY old. I want that body back!)
That's all I got for today people! I can't wait to read everyone elses post!
I am anxiously awaiting my weigh in tomorrow, I hope its a good one. The boy is grilling out for me tonight again so hopefully It's a good healthy dinner :) Putting that sucker into mfp will be quite interesting haha :)
