About a week ago, I verbally gave myself permission to feel beautiful. I looked at my 400 pound body in the mirror and smiled. Today I saw a varicose vein underneath my knee and instead of thinking about how it should be removed or covered up, I embraced it as a part of my body, and viewed it as proof of how hard my body works to have this fantastic life that I have been given. This body was given to me as a gift from God. Just as how I want for my kids to value their bodies, I imagine God wants the same from me.
Embrace your body! It's the only one you get in this life.
