Alicia from Brew Mama is currently hosting a linkup encouraging everyone to be positive about themselves. I found others posts to be inspiring and it reminded me to be more positive towards myself.
Three beautiful things about me (2 outer and 1 inner beauty)
1-I love my feet. Walk into any shoe store in the country and look at the shoes on display, its my size. I wear a size 6 shoes or 4 in kids sizes. Its always on display because smaller shoes look cuter than huge shoes. I may have a shoe fetish but I blame that on working at a shoe store for three years.
2-I love my smile. Most any moment of the day, there is a big grin plastered on my face. I can't help it. I am always smiling.
3-Inner strength. I love my strength. I never knew how strong I can be until I had to go through some rough waters. I tried to go through those tough patches alone and I discovered how impossible that is. Once I sought help, others were able to open my eyes to my inner strength. Now I am currently working on my outer strength and I am slowly seeing the fruits of that labor.
This was a difficult task to participate in, primarily because my thoughts gravitated to the things that I don't like. Why is it hard to be loving to ourselves? I am sure there is no good answer.
Last night I enjoyed an evening of painting and sipping wine with my friend. So fun and we left with masterpieces! Please go to my intagram @esthernorine to find the fun photos.
On a separate, weight loss note, I had a cupcake at work but managed to stay away from seconds there. Then at Kamps 1910 Cafe, I had another cupcake but I only ate half of it. Granted it was large but I felt ok eating half and sharing the other half with my friend. I think that my habits are improving and any sign of progress is a good sign to me.
The restaurant was a nice self-serve sort of place. That can be a hassle when trying to order wine and missing instructions on painting but I prefer to get my own dishes, water, and clean up after myself.
Please stay tuned for another post on the weekend. Perhaps, I will do a Silly Saturday post.
