Great Quote of the Day…

This may even qualify as quote of the week, lol. Found it on one of the other blogs I read (I wish i was that eloquent, lol.) and the more people I share it with, the truer it becomes and the happier it makes me to read it. So from me, to you. Enjoy.

“Beauty must be defined as what we are, or else the concept itself is our enemy.”
Self-acceptance is a tough thing to master, especially when it comes to us females and physical attributes. This quote to me speaks volumes, not of complacency about what we’re not necessarily happy about, but acknowledgement that at some point, you have to be able to make peace with the jiggly thighs or the unruly hair or the irritating freckles or what have you. It’s you, it’s unique, and if you don’t love it, you’re only at war with yourself. Some things may never change 100%.
For instance, it would probably take an act of God for me to ever be “skinny” lol. That or a treadmill and coupled with a really unfriendly trainer. Neither of those things sounds thrilling lol. But, on the flip-side, I can take pride in the fact that I do take strides to be a healthier “me”, even if some would say I’m a bit on the plump side. It’s not about perfection. It’s about acceptance. And it’s a beautiful thing.
