I have to apologize for my lack of activity here and at SOAM, we learned last week that my mother passed away.
My mother spent the better part of her 61 years here on Earth hating herself. She could not see the beauty within her, and when she became overweight what little self-worth she felt was utterly lost.
Life is too short to spend so much time on self-hate. I beg you to work today and every day on self-love. You are beautiful. You are worthy. And you are both of those things no matter your weight (read the disclaimer here if you think I’m promoting unhealthy habits). In my mother’s name, and in your mother’s name, and in the name of all women, love yourself today.
If you have something to share about your body-image and how it relates to your mother, I would love to share that here as an entry – just click participate in the sidebar.
Blessings to you.
