This morning I woke feeling pretty darn good. I felt energetic, positive, I even felt sexy. I jumped in the shower, hummed as I got ready…. decided to wear my skinny jeans, hot pink tank top and bright, lime green shirt….. I jumped on my bike and still felt pretty darn good all the way to Main St.
It wasn’t until I rode on Main Street by the large windows that let me see my reflection…. I didn’t like what I saw…. my reflection was “chunky” and I frowned all the way to the office.
It took me a few minutes to realize that there was nothing wrong with my reflection…. what’s wrong is the stupid, unrealistic image we have in our heads of how we should look like.
I’m not tall, I’m not skinny, I don’t have long legs… I don’t have flat abs….. but I have to remember that I am OK, just the way I am"
